Our technology teams endeavour every day to transform conventional compressor technology. The LD Series range of 3 HP to 15 HP direct-drive reciprocating air compressors equip our customers with the key benefits of high energy efficiency, industry-leading reliability, low noise and ease of maintenance,” said Dr. Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director, ELGi Equipments.
