To bring a revolution in the Piston Air Compressor Technology, ELGi has launched the ‘LD Series’, a range of lubricated direct drive reciprocating air compressors. Backed by best-in-class performance for given input power, durable parts and a minimum number of service points, every LD series air compressor offers low life cycle cost and quick return on investment. Commenting on the product launch, Rajesh Premchandran, Director, ISAAME (India, South Asia, Africa and the Middle East) said, “Customers in India are challenged with increasing electricity costs, limited industrial floor space and fluctuating market demand. Taking all of this into consideration, we’ve designed the LD series range of direct drive reciprocating air compressors.” Unlike conventional belt-driven piston air compressors, the LD Series is compact, ensures high performance, low decibel operation and ease of maintenance. Best suited for application across the general engineering, automotive, textile, plastics, rubber and woodworking industrial segments to meet their fluctuating air needs and ensure energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and low noise compressor operations, this direct-drive piston air compressor range also helps organisations across the world to lower the operating costs while achieving their productivity goals.

Key advantages

  • Precise tolerance and effective transmission increases the flow of air
  • Elimination of belts reduces energy consumption
  • Efficient 6-pole low-speed motors ensure high reliability. Eg. High lifetime of piston rings
  • Compact crankcase significantly reduces oil fill needs
  • Large intercooler with more cooling area ensures better temperature control thereby reducing the load on downstream equipment
  • Common cooling fan for Motor and Top block, unlike the conventional belt-drive model, results in high energy efficiency and power saving
