ELGi To Showcase Oil-Free Compressed Air Solutions at the Best Practices 2023 EXPO & Conference, Chicago
17 Oct 2023
Charlotte, NC October 17: ELGi North America (ELGi), a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, is set to return to Best Practices Expo & Conference from October 23-25 at McCormick Place in Chicago. This year, the event will be co-located with the Process Expo, a leading global food equipment and technology show that unites the entire food and beverage industry.
The “Always Better” AB37V oil-free air compressor will be on key display at booth #1820; the AB Series brings significant advancements, offering superior compressed air quality, consistent performance throughout its life cycle, cooler operating temperatures, and unparalleled reliability. These features guarantee dependable compressor functionality and emphasize a commitment to minimizing the total cost of ownership.
“We are excited to once again participate in the Best Practices Expo & Conference, this time co-located with Process Expo, which should amount to a tremendous show,” said Keith Sportsman, Director of Sales. “Our participation underscores our dedication to offering advanced and reliable compressed air solutions for the food and beverage industry. We look forward to connecting with industry professionals and building long-lasting, productive relationships.”
Compressed air is pivotal in the food and beverage sector, supporting essential processes such as food processing, preservation, frozen food production, and packaging. Ensuring air purity is crucial when choosing a compressor for food-related tasks. While many facilities use oil-lubricated compressors, which pose potential oil contamination risks, ELGi's AB Series compressors deliver 100% oil-free air. These compressors meet and exceed ISO 8573-1 Class 0 and ISO 8573-7 requirements, eliminating contamination threats in food and beverage packaging applications.
The AB Series oil-free compressor can also be equipped with an optional variable-speed drive, enabling significant energy savings as it adjusts to fluctuating air demand smoothly. The compressor's compact footprint, lower operating noise, proprietary coating of the rotor and airend housing, and simplified design approach make it unique within oil-free compressed air offerings.
Other technical features of the AB Series include:
Stainless steel rotors: Unique “eta-V” rotors result in reduced pressure loss and increased stage efficiency.
Efficient separation: Efficient air-water separation with its WSBIC (water separation by impact and centrifugal action) system.
Pure water quality: ELGi air compressors maintain water quality with an inbuilt sanitation cycle and closed-loop water circuit, eliminating the need for a reverse osmosis system. This reduces power and maintenance costs and ensures pure water quality.
Compact, air-cooled package: The cooling system, with fans and a larger cooling surface area, enhances the cooling of hot air. The fan motor uses significantly less power, and the integrated fan-motor assembly maintains a low temperature, thereby increasing the motor’s lifespan.
