Compressed air is not pure. It contains inherent impurities that could be detrimental to the end application. We offer a wide range of downstream air compressor accessories that ensure application-specific air quality norms are met while also contributing to a greener environment.
Compressed air is not pure. The compressed air contains inherent impurities that are detrimental to the end application. Some common contaminants of compressed air are water, dirt, small wear particles, bacteria, and sometimes even degraded lubricating oil. These impurities mix and often form an acidic sludge that might increase the wear and tear of end applications like pneumatic tools, machinery, valves orifices, and electro-pneumatic controls like relays. For increased reliability and energy savings, compressed air must be absolutely clean and dry. ELGi offers a wide range of pneumatic downstream accessories that ensure application-specific air quality norms are met per the ISO 8573 standards. The air treatment downstream & condensate management solutions offered by ELGi are called AIRMATE systems, and energy conservation systems are classified as ELGi CONSERVE.



Why downstream filters are critical?

The atmospheric air contains moisture, particle contaminants, microorganisms, and gases. When this air gets compressed, the concentration of such particles these increases by 6-10 times (equal to compression ratio). However, when this atmospheric air gets compressed by a compressor, other contaminants like oil and metal traces get added during the compression process. This is why it is essential to remove these contaminants from the compressed air before using them for any application.

The ELGi’s Airmate Filters (AF) are suitable for applications that require filtered air for reliable performance. The AF series filters provide customers with best-in-class filtration and the lowest pressure drop. These filters are manufactured in compliance with applicable international standards ASME(USA), CE (Europe), CRN (Canada), AS 1210(Australia), and designed as per the international quality standards.


ELGi offers its Heat Recovery System as an additional gadget with its EG Series compressor. Customers can easily plug the Heat Recovery System to the air compressor and use the heat generated in the air compressor to warm water and air for use in showers and boilers.
