ELGi Launches EG-Premium Series Air Compressors

ELGi has launched a new series of air compressors, called the EG-Premium at a time when there is a worldwide demand for energy conservation and low carbon emission products. These compressors best reflect the current market mood and are specially designed for ensuring lower energy consumption and higher efficiencies.

The EG-Premium is available in the 125 hp to 200 hp range. There is a significant reduction in the noise level as well, along with improvements in aesthetics and overall efficiency. These compressors are fitted with the eta·V profile airends from ELGi, which have a unique screw profile with high volumetric efficiency and low specific power consumption. Elgi Oil Free Premium

These machines are compact with optional, integrated variable frequency drives and integrated refrigerated dryers (in some markets). Thanks to the in-house expertise in the design of pressure vessels, the air-oil separator tanks in these compressors are designed to keep oil carry-over in the compressed air to a maximum of just 1 ppm.  This exceeds the industry average and shows Elgi’s commitment to preserve our environment by reducing oil consumption.

These compressors come with a custom-designed bulk water separator, which removes 99 percent of the moisture from the compressed air by impact and centrifugal action, thereby resulting in a reduced pressure drop and reduced load on the dryer and downstream equipment. The coolers are designed to handle large flows and pressure to deliver the best performance even at higher ambient temperatures. These compressors are also equipped with the ELGi’s Neuron III controller, which has modbus read/write capabilities standard for integration into building SCADA and IOT systems.
