Contactless Magnetic Coupling

TIG Reciprocating Compressor

04.05.2015 Haug's TIG type compressor is the first reciprocating compressor to have a contactless magnetic coupling delivering a maximum drive power of 110 kW. The compressor is gas tight and 100 % oil-free thanks to its dry running design.

The compressor produces very little vibration and is of modular design. The power upgrade from 30 to 110 kW required new technologies to fit a dry running crank drive and a gas tight, contactless and wear-free drive with a magnetic coupling. Owing to the higher load capacity of the crank drive, the machine now has a higher discharge pressure, for example, for oil-free gas storage applications. Outstanding features of the compressors are: Permanent gas tightness – even at standstill – and no gas losses during compressor start/stop operation. No pollution of the environment by gas leakages and no contamination of the process gas by ambient air. The wear-free magnetic coupling works without energy losses. The flexible coupling protects the compressor from overload. 

Facts For Decision-Makers:


  • technically gas tight
  • contactless and wear-free drive 
  • overload protection
