From California, an upgrade to the modern and ubiquitous air compressor
Sustainable, more efficient, easier and safer to use – according to its manufacturer
California-based Carnot claims to have built an upgrade to the modern and ubiquitous air compressor, a machine that they say is sustainable and more efficient than the traditional, commonly used workshop tool.
The company says its design cuts down the noise noticeably, improves heat management and reduces the cost of ownership by as much as 20 percent, all while using no oil.
The new design is inspired by a sixteenth-century device called a trompe, which used the force of falling water, and the resulting air bubbles, to compress the air and push it through a pipe using no moving parts whatsoever. These machines were used in Catalonia as part of a unique forging process, as well as in mines.
