The Indian pharmaceutical industry has grown exponentially from approximately US $2 million in 1948 to about US $21 billion today, at a growth rate of over 15%. The compressed air used in pharmaceutical manufacturing must be free of microbial contamination and oil in micronising operations. In some applications pure oxygen or nitrogen may be required and the moisture content of the air should be below a specified level, such as 50 ppm. Elgi offers a wide range these requirements. This includes lubricated compressors with a combination of driers and filters, as well as oil-free compressors (up to 2500 cfm). ELGi’s oil free screw compressors offer oil-free air that adhere to the ISO 8573 Class “0” certification, a wide operating temperature range (-5 deg to +50 deg Celsius) and a quicker return on investment with increased reliability and energy efficiency across pharmaceutical installations.
