Coimbatore-based Elgi Equipments, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, today launched the ‘LD Series’ range of lubricated direct drive reciprocating air compressors. The company is one of the biggest suppliers to the automotive industry in India with nearly all OEMs and leading component suppliers using its products in their manufacturing plants.
With a low lifecycle cost and quick return on investment, every LD series air compressor is backed by best-in-class performance for given input power, durable parts and a minimum number of service points.
Commenting on the product launch, Rajesh Premchandran, Director, ISAAME (India, South Asia, Africa and Middle East) said, “Customers in India are challenged with increasing electricity costs, limited industrial floor space and fluctuating market demand. Taking all of this into consideration, we’ve designed the LD series range of direct drive reciprocating air compressors. Unlike conventional belt-driven piston air compressors, the LD Series is compact, ensures high performance, low decibel operation and ease of maintenance.”
Reciprocating air compressors have been a part of Elgi’s growth story and over the years, the company has developed application-specific products to address a wide range of industry applications.

With a unique integrated motor and top block design, the LD series, a two stage reciprocating air compressor, offer customers a low life cycle cost while ensuring superior performance.
The ‘LD Series’ lubricated direct drive piston air compressors are best suited for application across the general engineering, automotive, textile, plastics, rubber and wood working industrial segments. These industry segments specifically require high performing piston air compressors to meet fluctuating air needs and ensure energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and low noise compressor operations.
