Oil lubricated screw air compressors from ELGi are the backbone of varied industrial applications.

The oil lubricated range of screw compressors offers cost-effective, long-lasting compressed air solutions suitable for light to heavy duty industrial applications.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. What is an ELGi screw compressor?

Rotary screw air compressors are rotary positive displacement machines capable of high-speed operation over a wide range of operating pressures and flow rates at high efficiencies. In screw air compressors, there are no valves or other mechanical forces that can cause unbalance. This allows a compressor to operate at high speeds while combining a large flow rate with small exterior dimensions

2. What are the benefits of using an ELGi screw compressor?

ELGi ensures maximum benefits for their range of oil-lubricated screw air compressors by providing high durability, best-in-class warranty, efficient air-oil separation, and the lowest oil carryover in the industry, encapsulated own manufactured airends, and superior performance.

3. What are the different types of ELGi screw compressors available?

Electric Lubricated Screw Air Compressor

  • EN Series Screw Air Compressors 2.2-45 Kw
  • EG Series Screw Air Compressor

4. How often should I maintain my ELGi screw compressor?

If your compressor shows signs of wear, rusted piping, excessive vibrations, overheating, or metal deposits in your oil analysis, it's time for a thorough inspection. VEMC offers an annual maintenance check which provides timely maintenance of the compressor adhering to the standard industry maintenance guidelines.

5. How do I troubleshoot my ELGi screw compressor if it stops working?

Most of the problems can be identified through self-diagnosis of the following:

  • Check Oil levels and colour
  • Check the condition of air filter. Keep it clean.
  • Check the temperature of the motor with a temperature gun to determine if the machine is running normally or not.
  • The coolers must be cleaned regularly to ensure that there is no clogging or dust accumulation between its fins.
