Brake pad manufacturer reduces energy consumption with ELGi compressed air solution05 October 2021

ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, has provided a turnkey solution to a global brake pad manufacturer based in Hartlepool.

ELGi, together with its authorised channel partner Compressors and Pipework Systems (CAPS), replaced the existing compressed air system resulting in improved operational efficiency, reduced site air pressure by 0.5 bar and decreased energy consumption by approximately 3.5%.

The brake pad manufacturer sought to modernise its compressed air system due to reliability issues that led to increased maintenance costs and downtime. ELGi’s team conducted a site audit to evaluate the compressed air needs and developed a tailor-made solution for the British manufacturer. CAPS’ 600kW turnkey solution comprised four new ELGi air compressors (two EG132 Premium and two EG160 VFD Premium), two refrigerated air dryers, high-quality aluminium pipework and oil-water-separators. The customer immediately realised a reduction in energy consumption and a much smoother running system with no interruptions or unexpected downtime.
