We Help Protect Your Plant and the Bottom Line
With decades of grit science and experience drawn from more than 2,600 global grit removal system installations, Smith & Loveless delivers innovative solutions that effectively meet the needs of your plant over time.

Grit removal success starts with understanding how to manage flow velocity for superior removal efficiency, which is achieved through constant R&D, field experience, and forward-thinking engineering. Beyond that, because all systems are indeed different, one must analyze how purchase price, installation cost, energy use and utility cost will affect the value of the grit system investment.

With new products such as the PISTA® 360™ with V-FORCE BAFFLE™, OPTIFLOW 270™, the PISTA® VIO™ and PISTA®Works™, we prove once again that at Smith & Loveless, we do more than develop industry firsts.
