UK engineering company Lontra has recently unveiled its LP2 Blade Compressor range for use in low pressure and blower markets such as pneumatic conveying, water treatment and aeration.

The new range has been designed for continuous operation and the company says it expects it to offer energy savings of more than 21%. The machine delivers up to 2250m3/hr (1325 cfm) at a pressure of up to 1 bar(g) (14.5 psig) and has been designed to include the latest in IoT monitoring, which includes the remote transfer of real-time data on the compressor as well as permanent magnet motor technology.

This will be the first time that Lontra will manufacture directly in the UK, addressing an $84 billion international market for industrial air compressors and blowers. Steve Lindsey, CEO and founder at Lontra said: “Following the successful global licensing of our first product in 2013, we’ve been working with some of the world’s finest engineering minds to bring a new disruptive product to the global market.”

He added: “We are particularly proud that we’ll be manufacturing the first run of our LP2 in the UK; a real vote of confidence in Britain’s ability to manufacture at volume.”
