Lontra’s New Factory Manufactured its First LP2 Blade Blower

Lontra’s new Manufacturing Centre in Doncaster, UK, has manufactured its first LP2 Blade Blower, marking the ramp-up in production for the wastewater and pneumatic conveying markets. Lontra has received a record number of inquiries after announcing they were ready to take an increased quantity of orders for the LP2 Blade Blower earlier this year, with interest stretching globally. 

The first LP2 Blade Blower rolls off Lontra’s Manufacturing Centre Assembly Line.

“This highlights the market’s appetite for something different and to explore what’s available on the market while adopting both best practices and the latest blower innovations. The first units manufactured at our smart factory are being exported to North America for low-pressure applications. Our distributors and end-users want a more reliable technology, with low lifecycle costs, and a technology that is going to help their business meet 2030 net zero emission targets,” said Chris Hyde, Head of Commercial at Lontra.

The LP2 Blade Blower is the first commercially available blower redesign in 85 years, resolving some of the problems associated with conventional blower design. It is energy-efficient and reliable, with independent testing demonstrating energy savings of up to 34% compared to commercial equivalents.

Lontra’s LP2 Blade Blower is the first product to be manufactured at their new 60,000 square foot smart factory. Much like their patented Blade Compressor®, the factory has been designed from a clean sheet. “One of the advantages of building a new factory from scratch is the ability to optimize everything. Every detail matters in making an energy-efficient and productive site. Following significant investment in high-spec capital equipment, we are preparing to build an increasing number of units to meet market demand. This is scheduled to increase monthly and yearly as the business expands,” said Joe Cockcroft, Head of Operations at Lontra.

“All of this would not have been possible without our hard-working and highly skilled team. We are extremely proud to have great people behind Lontra, making this happen,” Cockcroft said.
