WORKING PRINCIPLE OF OIL-LUBRICATED AIR COMPRESSOR
The oil-lubricated air compressors from ELGi work on the principle that when the impeller rotates, a piston in a cylinder is driven to reciprocate. The air compressors pull air into the storage tank with a rotary screw that needs oil to run the compression process. The airflow in and out of the air compressor has three critical factors: pressure, volume, and velocity. Oil lubrication prevents the wearing of high-speed rotating parts at high temperatures to ensure maximum efficiency.
The oil injected into the compression chamber helps keep the system cool by dissipating the heat and acts as a lubricant to lower the friction between the moving parts. It also seals the chamber and helps in noise reduction.
ADVANTAGES OF USING OIL-LUBRICATED AIR COMPRESSOR
High Efficiency And Reliability
ELGi oil-lubricated air compressors are more efficient and reliable. These oil-lubricated air compressors are designed for heavy-duty, industrial applications. They ensures smart savings for fluctuating air demands by reducing your operating pressures and total lifecycle cost and helping in recovering and utilizing waste energy for maximum benefits.
ELGi ensures maximum benefits for their range of oil-lubricated screw air compressors by providing high durability, best-in-class warranty, efficient air-oil separation, and the lowest oil carryover in the industry, encapsulated own manufactured airends, and superior performance.
INDUSTRIES THAT USE OIL-LUBRICATED AIR COMPRESSOR
Oil-lubricated air compressors are used across most industries that do not have stringent requirements on contamination. Many heavy-duty manufacturing plants and workshops using pneumatic tools can opt for oil-lubricated air compressors. These compressors are an integral part of the production process in industries as they power several operations, and a breakdown could cause severe production downtime. ELGi oil-lubricated air compressors can ensure that the production is not disrupted due to compressor failure by designing highly reliable compressors.
