HOW SCREW COMPRESSORS WORK
A screw air compressor operates using a rotary-type of positive-displacement mechanism with two helix-shaped rotors. As atmospheric air is drawn into the screw element, it gets compressed as it moves along the rotors. ELGi’s screw compressor facilitates this efficient process and allows the screw compressor to produce a continuous supply of compressed air, making it an ideal choice for various applications, particularly in high-quality industrial productions.
ELGi‘S EXCEPTIONAL OIL-LUBRICATED COMPRESSOR SERIES: UNRAVELING THE BENEFITS OF EG, EN, AND EQ FOR INDUSTRY-LEADING EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY
ELECTRIC OIL LUBRICATED AIR COMPRESSORS – ELGi EG SERIES
ELGi’s electric oil-lubricated screw compressor EG Series is designed with the advantage of operating at a low noise level, making it a highly efficient and silent air compressor. The EG Series’ silent operation is a significant advantage in various industrial settings where noise control is essential. Its ability to maintain such a low noise level ensures a quieter and more comfortable working environment for operators and nearby personnel.
The EG Series excels in air-oil separation, achieving efficiency through a three-stage process:
- Impact of the air-oil mixture on the tank’s circumferential area.
- Deceleration action of the air-oil mixture to remove oil particles.
- Air with minor traces of oil enters the separator element for separation.
ELGi’s EG Series oil-lubricated compressors can handle larger air capacities and higher pressures, making them suitable for heavy-duty industrial applications. Oil-lubricated compressors typically have a lower initial cost compared to oil-free compressors, making them a more budget-friendly choice for manufacturing companies in UK & Ireland.
