The Blade Compressor™ is an innovative design which delivers 20% efficiency gains over competing technologies.
The compressor is designed for high volumetric and thermal efficiency, and the geometry of the compressor allows high efficiency heat recovery. It is oil free, and other features include small size, low vibration and quiet operation. A key feature is the compressor's ability to vary flow and pressure with minimal efficiency loss, without the use of Variable Speed Drive.
It is a rotary device with a wrapped toroidal chamber. The key features are a rotating blade, which passes through
a slot in a rotating disc once per cycle. The unit is therefore a compact, double acting rotary compressor.

The compressor has very substantial markets, and is suitable for various industrial air markets, blowers and
specific process gas applications. Lontra’s initial focus is on waste water aeration, automotive superchargers
and the industrial air market.
