ELGi introduces intelligent, energy-efficient LD Series two-stage, direct drive, duplex compressor with controller
- The 10 HP and 15 HP duplex direct drive machines run with half or full load capacity to meet varying compressed air demand while ensuring high Uptime and significant energy cost reductions.
- Intelligent XT controller levels out utilisation between the two compressed air units, reducing manual intervention.
Elgi Equipments (BSE: 522074 NSE: ELGIEQUIP), one of the world’s leading air-compressor manufacturers, with over 62 years of compressed air excellence, reiterated its commitment to building tomorrow’s India at the 19th edition of INTEC. The international machine tools and industrial trade fair is expected to witness over 100 thousand business visitors with 200+ product categories on display.
A platinum sponsor at INTEC, ELGi unveiled its LD Series two-stage direct-drive, intelligent reciprocating air compressor with a proven Neuron XT Controller at the ELGi stand no. 2, Hall B. The LD Series two-stage direct drive 10HP and 15 HP duplex controller versions are future-ready with three intelligent compressor modes that customers can select based on their compressed air demand and utilization pattern. ELGi also displayed its range of EG, EN, and EV Series of oil-lubricated screw air compressors as part of the exhibit.
“Energy efficiency is a growing concern across the industry. Our customers are challenged by ever-increasing electricity costs, fluctuating market demand, and limited industrial floor space, causing them to look at competitive compressed air solutions that offer a lower total cost of ownership. Our technology teams endeavour every day to transform conventional compressor technology. The LD series range of 3HP to 15 HP direct-drive reciprocating air compressors equip our customers with the key benefits of high energy efficiency, industry-leading reliability, low noise, and ease of maintenance.” said Dr. Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director, Elgi Equipments.
Rajesh Premchandran, Director ISAAME (India, South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East), Elgi Equipments, said, “With the new controller version, the reliability quotient of the LD Series compressors has increased, with additional protection for both the motor and the top block. These machines are user-friendly with selectable modes based on demand and utilization. The single control mode allows the compressor to run at half capacity. The energy optimisation mode auto configures to half or full load utilization to meet fluctuating compressed air demand, and the load sharing mode ensures machine utilization at full capacity to meet compressed air demand. The LD series controller version comes with a built-in auto-restart option after power resumption and part-level maintenance alerts for proactive maintenance. Also, operational safety is a critical element of the design. The direct drive controller version carries an indigenous fault detection system that detects and alerts faults on phase reversal, motor overload, pressure sensor probe failure, and emergency switch fault to avoid catastrophic failures and ensure high Uptime. We’re confident that the LD series will offer a superlative compressed air solution for our customers across the general engineering, automotive, textile, plastics, rubber, and woodworking industrial segments.”
