SIGMA AIR UTILITY: Air as a Service

Compressed air at a fixed price

With Kaeser's SIGMA AIR UTILITY you get a reliable supply of compressed air tailored to your needs. Instead of a large capital expense, you pay a monthly fee to have clean, dry and energy efficient air at the ready. Whether it's installed in your plant or outside in our weatherproof custom engineered enclosures, we'll monitor and service the equipment to prevent downtime.

Here's how Kaeser's SIGMA AIR UTILITY works:

  • We'll analyze your compressed air needs and draw up an individual concept – based on what is required.
  • Next we will build, install, and operate the compressed air system.
  • Our Kaeser Teleservice, the logistics center, and our extensive global service network ensure that compressed air is available at all times.

With SIGMA AIR UTILITY you pay a fixed basic price that covers an agreed quantity of compressed air. When larger amounts are needed, a fixed contractual price applies for the additional quantities used. All prices remain in effect for the entire duration of the contract, which means no price increases.

Your advantages

  • No compressed air worries:
    We offer everything from a single expert source: from the analysis of your compressed air needs to the machines and service. That lets you and your personnel concentrate fully on your core tasks.
  • From variable costs to predictable costs:
    Sigma Air Utility takes the uncertainty our of operating an air system. Your employees will have time for other tasks. That means: You have more liquidity, are saved from tapping into your working capital and have greater flexibility in deploying your personnel.
  • A system scaled to your needs:
    A competitive market brings ups and downs. Are you cutting back your output, or perhaps stepping it up? Are you relocating your operations? With SIGMA AIR UTILITY you can remain flexible. We will adjust your compressed air supply to your needs.
Flexible, adaptable, scalable
Kaeser's engineered packages are scaleable to facility requirements

Using the latest in CAD technology, we can create detailed P&I schematics, dimensional, and even 3D drawings of proposed systems. Our design service takes the guesswork out of facility planning.
