The 10 HP and 15 HP duplex direct drive machines run with half or full load capacity to meet varying compressed air demand while ensuring high uptime and significant energy cost reductions


Elgi Equipments, one of the world's leading air-compressor manufacturers with over 62 years of compressed air excellence, reiterated its commitment to building tomorrow's India at the 19th edition of INTEC. The international machine tools and industrial trade fair is expected to witness over 100 thousand business visitors with 200+ product categories on display. 

A platinum sponsor at INTEC, ELGi unveiled its LD Series two-stage direct-drive, intelligent reciprocating air compressor with a proven Neuron XT Controller at the ELGi stand no. 2, Hall B. The LD Series two-stage direct drive 10HP and 15 HP duplex controller versions are future-ready with three intelligent compressor modes that customers can select based on their compressed air demand and utilisation pattern. ELGi also displayed its range of EG, EN, and EV Series of oil-lubricated screw air compressors as part of the exhibit. 

Rajesh Premchandran, Director - ISAAME (India, South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East), Elgi Equipments, said, "With the new controller version, the reliability quotient of the LD Series compressors has increased, with additional protection for both the motor and the top block. These machines are user-friendly with selectable modes based on demand and utilisation. The single control mode allows the compressor to run at half capacity.” He also mentioned that the energy optimisation mode auto-configures to half or full load utilisation to meet fluctuating compressed air demand. The load sharing mode ensures machine utilisation at full capacity to meet compressed air demand. 

The LD series controller version comes with a built-in auto-restart option after power resumption and part-level maintenance alerts for proactive maintenance. Also, operational safety is a critical element of the design. The direct drive controller version carries an indigenous fault detection system that detects and alerts faults on phase reversal, motor overload, pressure sensor probe failure, and emergency switch fault to avoid catastrophic failures and ensure high Uptime. We're confident that the LD series will offer a superlative compressed air solution for our customers across the general engineering, automotive, textile, plastics, rubber and woodworking industrial segments.
