Air compressors deliver energy savings

29 November, 2023

Alucosur, a leading Spanish surface treatment company, says it fulfilled its need for high-quality and energy-efficient compressed air with EG Series compressors from ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments. 

Alucosur offers a wide variety of bespoke lacquer finishes, specialising in wood and aluminium profiles, purpose-built for applications such as windowpanes. Its ability to achieve a smooth finish on its lacquered products requires reliable and consistent compressed air.

The company was looking to replace existing air compressors to achieve better energy efficiency and ensure a reliable compressed air supply as part of its modernisation efforts. Alucosur contacted ACOFRI, one of ELGi’s Channel Partners in Spain, to find the right solution. Following a thorough on-site analysis of the compressed air demand and requirements, ACOFRI installed two ELGi EG30 oil-lubricated screw compressors, one of which included a variable speed drive. 

Antonio González Muñoz, Director at Alucosur, said: “The reasons behind ACOFRI’s confidence in ELGi quickly became evident; it was mainly due to the air compressor’s ability to deliver reliable compressed air with reduced energy consumption. With ELGi’s strong warranty and extensive technical support, we are confident there will be a quick and agile response should the need arise.” 

Victor Escolano Marco, Regional Manager Iberia at ELGi, said: “The performance and efficiency of compressed air systems are critical attributes in every industrial application as they directly influence the customers’ bottom line and significantly contribute to the end-quality of their products. Thanks to ELGi’s technology, industry-leading warranty, and strong commitment to customer service, our customers can extend the lifecycle of their compressed air systems and reduce costs in the long term, all while maintaining high-quality compressed air across processes.” 

ELGi's high-efficiency airends are equipped with in-house developed η-V profile rotors, with the 4/5 lobe combination, designed to run at low rotor speeds. The combination of these low operating speeds and operational Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) means the EG Series oil-lubricated screw air compressor lasts a long time and can adapt to the changes in demand and optimise the airflow, saving energy costs.
