ELGi Air Compressors New Zealand

Why should you invest in an ELGi industrial air compressor from Finnco Compressors and Westec Automation?

Finnco Compressors and Westec Automation have a wide range of ELGi compressors including:

  • Piston/reciprocating - single and two-stage belt and direct drive in oil-lubricated and oil-free.
  • Rotary screw - oil-lubricated and oil-free.
  • Portable- electric and diesel.

ELGi air compressors are designed to lower the cost of ownership

About 85% of an air compressor’s cost derives from energy consumption, cost of spares, cost of service, warranty, and downtime.  ELGi are minimizing the impact of this.

ELGi air compressors are energy efficient

Multiple Motor Classes: ELGi offers motors ranging from IE1 to IE4 efficiency for its compressed air range, which allows customers the option to pick the efficiency class as per their budget and requirements.

Large Airends: Both ELGi's electric screw air compressors, which are used in metal manufacturing and their portable screw air compressors, which are used in mining, employ large airends running at slow speed, which offer the best volumetric efficiency and consequently the lowest energy consumption in the industry.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs): ELGi ’s rotary screw air compressors can be manufactured with in-built VFDs that will vary motor speed according to the air demand, thereby reducing power consumption. ELGi also offers standalone VFDs, which can be retrofitted to a non VFD air compressor.

Air Compressor Selection: Selecting the right sized air compressor will save significant energy for the customer. Finnco's salespeople will assess a customer’s demand pattern and propose the ideal air compressor.

ELGi have quality control

They own their foundry where they do the castings for their products.

They construct their airends within a two micron tolerance. Their six year airend warranty is the best in the industry and the airend design allows for customers to service it after ten years and continue running the machine as opposed to procuring a new machine or replacing the airend, which will equal the cost of a new machine.

ELGi has lowered the cost of servicing

ELGi designed the air compressors for ease of maintenance so the machine’s parts are easily accessible when servicing it and the air compressors have extended service periods.

Finnco Compressors and Westec Automation's proactive servicing, MaintenancePro, comes as standard

MaintenancePro is available as a one year or three-year contract with the yearly servicing costs paid up-front, not including responding to air compressor breakdowns.

Our system tracks your air compressor’s hours and automatically reminds us when your servicing is due.
