The Role of Air Compressor in Oxygen Cylinder Plant

Air compressors are used in numerous industrial applications, including healthcare products, food and beverages, petrochemicals, and nuclear power. Oxygen plants are industrial systems that are designed to generate oxygen, and compressed air plays a pivotal role in these. Typically, air compressors use air as a source of fuel, using pressure swing adsorption (PSA) or membrane separation techniques. Let’s take a closer look at the main types of air compressors that are manufactured and offered by ELGi.

Oil Lubricated Screw Compressors

The range of oil-lubricated air compressors from ELGi equips you with long-lasting and cost-effective compressed air solutions. An air compressor that is oil-lubricated draws air into a storage tank with a screw that requires oil in order to keep the production process running smoothly. They are relatively quieter than other ELGi air compressors and have long durability.

ELGi’s collection of oil-lubricated rotary screw air compressors have optimal profitability and make for efficient installation with its reliable design, advanced technological features, and sheer manufacturing excellence.

Why should you choose ELGi’s Electric EG Series of screw air compressors? 

The Electric EG Series of screw ELGi air compressors are known for their oil carryover of less than 1 PPM. In fact, this range has the lowest oil carryover in the industry and comes with 6 years of uptime warranty on Air End, and 3 years of uptime warranty on the Motor and Air oil separator.

Up to 85% of a compressor’s cost is from energy consumption, cost of spares, cost of service, warranty, and downtime. ELGi aims to minimize this 85% impact by offering high-efficiency motors with high flow capacity air ends that offer more airflow for the rated power.

Additionally, ELGi offers in-built Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) and standalone VFDs that help regulate airflow as per demand, which reduces power consumption.

Air Accessories

It is important to note that compressed air is not pure. The compressed air contains naturally occurring impurities that could have a negative effect on the end application. Common contaminants of compressed air include dirt, water, bacteria, and other particles, and sometimes, even the degraded and residual lubricating oil. When these mix together, they may form an acidic sludge which is likely to increase the wear and tear of the end applications. For increased reliability and energy savings, you must make sure that the compressed air is absolutely clean and dry.

ELGi provides an array of accessories that ensures that application-specific air quality norms are met as per ISO 8573 standards. Contact your local ELGi dealer and ELGi compressor distributor for the air compressor and air accessories that are best suited for you.
