The Indian pharmaceutical industry is expected to expand at a CAGR of 22.4 per cent to reach USD 55 billion by 2020. Pharmaceutical manufacturing demands clean, contamination free, pure air during the tablet coating and drying, bottle cleaning and nitrogen separation processes.
The AB Series of oil free compressors have been developed essentially to ensure the highest levels of compressed air purity. With its SS rotors and pure form of water after compression, the AB Series oil free screw compressors are the ultimate replacement of conventional oil free machines for sensitive pharmaceutical applications where the presence of oil vapor and moisture is intolerable. With in-house technology, the compressors are engineered to deliver maximum uptime and reliability. ELGi’s unique eta-V rotor design reduces pressure losses and increases stage efficiencies, leading to an optimized compressed air system, with easy serviceability with reduced service time. With adherence to superior safety norms, AB Series not only have low energy losses and low air outlet temperatures, but are also highly reliable and compact.
Ramesh Ponnuswami, Executive Director, Elgi Equipments says, “At ELGi, with our recently launched oil-free range, we endeavor to deliver oil free, zero contaminated air with maximum uptime and reliability. We are proud to have some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies as our customers today, and it truly stands testimony to our focus on building highly energy efficient compressors, the absolute best in the world.”
One of India’s largest pharmaceutical companies, and a long time ELGi customer said “Besides quality and reliability, we now look at air compressors not from the point of view of a one-time capital investment but its total cost of ownership. For that, energy consumption, the availability of spares and long-time assurance become critical. This is one of the main reasons behind our decision to work with ELGi”
