Compressor applications are changing in their technical design to save energy and the environment. At Lontra we maintain that the versatility of our designs is what makes them so special, meeting the needs of compressor applications used across industry.
Compressors account for 10 per cent of total industrial electricity use. Almost as much as 40 per cent in some plants. In the EU that equates to over 10TWh of electricity and 4.3 million tonnes of CO2 every single year. Since being identified as huge energy users, the government aims to bring new compressor regulations into place under the Ecodesign Project Lot 31.
From pneumatic conveying, to wastewater aeration. Also other industrial processes, such as powering tools in factories, compressors are an essential component of any major operation. They can be found in the food & drink, pharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment, cement, mining and textile manufacturing sectors amongst others. Across industry it is the fourth utility after water, electricity and gas since compressed air is everywhere.
