Landia’s New AirJet Aeration Mixing System

20 July 2021

Industrial effluent treatment plant specialists, FLI CAP Technology have brought in Landia’s AirJet aeration system to a major dairy products manufacturer in the North West of England. 

A retrofit installation, which had to be achieved in an extremely tight space, has greatly enhanced dairy effluent mixing to enhance the overall process, and importantly, prevent odors. The AirJet also removes the cost of adding chemicals or using energy-burning blowers. 

Incorporating Landia’s long-proven chopper pump, invented by the company in 1950, the AirJets are installed on two 7m high, 8.5m diameter glass-lined steel tanks (each 370m3). 

The AirJets, with their venturi nozzles and 18.5 kW-1500 rpm pumps, were installed by Landia’s Kieran Hilton and Jack Foster – both of whom served their apprenticeships at the pump and mixer manufacturer after attending Sir John Talbot's School in Landia’s hometown of Whitchurch in Shropshire. 

Howard Burton from Landia, said: “It is very heartening to see our young engineers come through the ranks to carry out such excellent work – giving a company with the caliber of FLI CAP Technology total assurance that the Landia team will get the job done on time and within budget”.
