Lontra’s name is upheld by the core innovation and clever geometry of its technology: The Blade Compressor®.
It represents the first new, widely applicable gas compressor design in nearly 80 years. It takes a clean-sheet approach by solving the problems associated with traditional compressor designs.
The compressor itself is a circular mechanism. It replaces the old ‘up and down’ piston technology, therefore compressing air – or gas – in front and inducing the air behind in continuous motion. As a result this minimises waste.
This innovation provides industries with a “triple win” benefit: it’s oil free, more energy efficient and more reliable than alternatives.
