What is Magnevane?

Magnevane is a patented technology that revolutionizes rotary vane compressors and motors. Magnevane uses less electricity for the same amount of compressed air and less compressed air for the same motor output while being plug and play into existing pneumatic networks.


It is estimated that 15% of global electricity is used to compress air. Magnevane technology will reduce that by at least 30%. That is equivalent to about 15% of the electricity generated from coal.


Magnevane is already deployed in compressed air systems. Now we want everyone to share in and benefit from this revolutionary technology.
