Fasolex relies on an ELGi turnkey compressed air solution for bean-sorting line15 March 2021

Fasolex, Poland’s leading bean, fruit and vegetable producer, has installed an ELGi compressed air system to power the bean sorting line at their new plant in Sahryń, Poland. The ELGi-compressed-air-powered sorting line removes defective beans and ensures the highest food quality possible.

ELGi provided Fasolex with a turnkey solution including an EG18 VFD (variable frequency drive) and an EG22 compressor, and was also responsible for the set-up and installation of the entire compressor room including the refrigeration dryer, buffer tank, oil-water separator and ventilation.

Andrzej Jasiak, the owner of Fasolex, said: “For nearly 30 years we have been processing, sorting and preparing beans with a focus on quality. We chose ELGi as our partner for our growth plans due to its ability to provide us with a complete turnkey solution, delivering the necessary robustness of the compressor while improving efficiency and reliability, while lowering operational costs. We rely on the compressed air system to meet our high standards for quality and to cater to the growing European demand. The solution provided by ELGi has given us worry-free comfort, allowing us to focus on delivering the best quality product to our customers.”

The design of the EG Series compressor range enables operations at extreme temperatures, the manufacturer says. Its airends are equipped with in-house developed η-V profile rotors, with the 4/5 lobe combination, designed to run at low rotor speeds. This unique design is said to reduce pressure losses.
