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 and radical gas compressor design in nearly 80 years. It takes a clean-sheet approach by solving the problems associated with traditional compressor designs.

Blade Compressor® Demonstration Machine


Lontra Blade Compressor® technology is a circular mechanism. It replaces the old ‘up and down’ piston compressor technology, therefore compressing air – or gas – in front and inducing the air behind in continuous motion. As a result this minimises waste and energy loss.

This innovation provides industries with a “triple win” benefit in the compressor world: it’s oil free, more energy efficient and more reliable than alternatives.
