Lontra innovation recognised by Solids Handling and Processing Association

Lontra is delighted to announce that it has won the The Solids Handling and Processing Association (SHAPA) Innovation Award for 2019.

Lontra’s latest innovation, the LP2 Blade Compressor®, launched in April at Hannover Messe’s ComVac exhibition, bringing a new low-pressure compressor for the food and pharmaceutical markets into our product portfolio.

The new LP2 range has been optimised for reliable and continuous operation, delivering an expected energy saving exceeding 21% in industries such as pneumatic conveying, water treatment and aeration.

Steve Lindsey, CEO and Founder at Lontra said:

Our LP2 Blade Compressor® has only been on the market for a few short weeks, but already we’re delighted with its reception. Following a successful launch at Hannover Messe, we’ve been engaged in several conversations about just how disruptive Blade Compressors can be to the global market in a wide range of use cases.


“The benefits of Blade Compressors will be felt across all manner of sectors and industries. We’re currently discussing a number of tests and demonstrations as we look to introduce our latest technology to partners and distributors across the food and drink industry.“
