ELGi Launches EQ Series in North America


ELGi Compressors USA has introduced the EQ Series, a new range of oil-lubricated, direct drive rotary screw air compressors. They’re designed to provide superior performance and reliability to small and medium-sized operations that traditionally use belt-driven air compressors.

The EQ “ELGi Quest” Series delivers reliability and performance gains to the 25 to 30-hp segment.


In line with ELGi's customer-centric approach, the EQ “ELGi Quest” Series is built for customers requiring reliable compressed air at improved flows at the right value. The EQ Series oil-lubricated, direct drive rotary screw air compressor is available from 25 to 30-horsepower with both fixed and variable speed drive configurations.
