THE BLADE COMPRESSOR®
Lontra’s name is upheld by the core innovation and clever geometry of its technology: The Blade Compressor®.
THE ‘BLADE’ IN THE ‘BLADE COMPRESSOR’ ROTATES CONSTANTLY THROUGH THE COMPRESSION CHAMBER
AIR ENTERS THE COMPRESSION CHAMBER THROUGH OUR CONSTANTLY OPEN INLET PORT, DRAWN IN BEHIND THE ‘BLADE’
A large port and minimal restrictions means high intake efficiency
THE ‘BLADE’ PASSES THROUGH THE ‘DISC’ AND TRAPS THE AIR IN FRONT OF IT.
What makes the ‘Blade Compressor’ so special!
THE AIR COMPRESSION NOW HAPPENS IN FRONT OF THE ‘BLADE’
Wide sealing areas ensure Minimum air leakage and Maximum efficiency.
THE DISCHARGE PORTS ALIGN AND THE COMPRESSED AIR EXITS THE MACHINE
Once again, Large ports and Minimal restrictions means High discharge efficiency.
“IN THE EQUIVALENT OF OVER TWO YEARS NORMAL USE, THE BLADE COMPRESSOR SHOWED NO PERFORMANCE REDUCTION AT ALL.”
Clive Patten, Sulzer
“THE COMPANY WOULD SAVE MORE THAN £1.8 MILLION A YEAR!”
“If the Lontra Blade Compressor® were to be rolled out across all of STW’s wastewater treatment works, the company would save more than £1.8 million a year in electricity cost, with a commensurate reduction in the company’s overall carbon emissions of three per cent.”
Tony Wray, Chief Executive (2013) Severn Trent Water.
