Elgi has upgraded its EG Series range with the introduction of the EG PM (Permanent Magnet) oil-lubricated screw air compressors available from 11- 45 kW.

The EG PM is expected to deliver up to 15% improved efficiency gains, aside from an incremental FAD or free air delivery of 16%.

The EG PM Series offers customers a range of intelligent features engineered to help minimise energy consumption and, as a result, reduce environmental impact. The drive system incorporates a proprietary ultra-efficient IE5+ permanent magnet synchronous motor tailored specifically for ELGi airends. The motor’s efficiencies (between 96.5% and 97.6%) are above the IE5 levels.

According to Elgi, the directly coupled system offers optimised lower motor and airend speeds, ensuring synchronous operation, which is particularly effective in variable speed applications. An intelligent thermal valve with an ambient temperature sensor maintains oil at ideal operating temperatures, preventing excessive heating in colder months and resulting in improved energy efficiency. The Neuron 4 controller offers a solution for superior and reliable compressor operation. Equipped with an industrial-grade seven-inch touchscreen interface and intelligent algorithms, the Neuron 4 is designed to optimise energy usage, enhance overall operational efficiency, ensure safe and controlled operations, and facilitate proactive maintenance.

Sovathya Koun, product manager at Elgi Compressors Europe, said: "Designed specifically for all major manufacturing industries, the EG PM Series spans the 11 to 45 kW power range, offering significant energy savings and decreased carbon emissions."

The new EG PM range comes with an Elgi warranty package, which includes a 10-year warranty on the airend, five years on other compressor components, three years on the VFD, and one year on electrical and rubber parts.

"Our extended warranty demonstrates the dependability of our products and offers our customers extra peace of mind," explained Koun. "With our comprehensive warranty coverage and broad channel partner network, we guarantee proximity to our customers ensuring swift and effective service response. This approach helps Elgi maintain the industry's best uptime and minimises lifecycle costs."
