ELGi Equipments, a leading air compressor manufacturer, showcased its new trolley mounted diesel-powered compressor– PG 550–200. This high productivity model comes with a pre-filter that makes the compressor more efficient and enhances its life. Also, on display were PG 500 – 175, PG 450 – 150, PG 400 – 100, and E45T ELGi’s portable screw air compressors that come with energy saving eta-V profile air-ends that result in significant savings in energy costs. Customers enjoy upto 80% savings on air-ends due to serviceable air-ends and upto 60% lower cost of spares and consumables. International warranty engines that are engineered to have better fuel economy and low emissions, power the compressors to provide durable performance at low cost of ownership. Uptime design of the compressors and reliable components from globally renowned vendors ensure longer service intervals and easy maintenance. Operating with a service network across India, customers enjoy maximum availability of the compressors and low operating cost. The company’s focus is on developing eco-friendly products with low maintenance requirements in a bid to encourage customers to migrate from traditional products to more energy-efficient alternatives. ELGi offers compressed air solutions from oil-lubricated and oil-free rotary screw compressors, oil-lubricated and oil-free reciprocating compressors and centrifugal compressors, to dryers, filters, and downstream accessories. ELGi compressors find application in blast hole drilling, uranium hole blowing, coal mining, marble mining, exploratory drilling, stone mining, and crawler drilling.
On the sideline of event speaking with NBM&CW, Mr. Ponnuswami said, “The compressors score high on reliability as they deliver the required drilling rate to the drilling units, and are very fuel-efficient too. Since they have to work in dusty areas and ambient temperatures, they have been fitted with pre-cleaners, which will require filter change at long durations. The filtration system in two stages prevents dust from entering the compressor and the engines. Aluminium oil coolers have been used for better heat dissipation in a compact construction. The robust enclosure with industrial grade steel and power coated canopy comes as a standard fit for maximum corrosion resistance and durability. The compressors’ unique cool box design allows cool air to enter the rear of the compressor (in closed door operation) and wash over internal components, keeping internal temperature low, and prolonging component life.”
He added, “Higher availability of ELGi compressors is ensured through complete localized manufacturing, supported by availability of parts and product support through tailor-made warranty programmes.”
