A package system introduced by Smith & Loveless offers four headworks processes on a single skid package. The PISTA Works pre-engineered system combines screening, grit removal and grit washing into an integrated system.

The complete system is pre-assembled and shipped direct to the job site on one truck. All equipment components are constructed of stainless steel. The system technologies include the company's V-FORCE baffle, S&L PISTA Turbo grit pump, and the PISTA Works grit washer with TRI-CLEANSE technology.

Package components also include ANSI flanged connections, a 6 mm OBEX spiral fine screen, manual bypass bar screen, two platforms for easy equipment access, and an epoxy-coated carbon steel skid support for the complete system, filled with grout.

"The typical headworks project consists of engineers designing a complete headworks structure with separate components," says William Flores, vice president, municipal systems. "We see cases where communities need a full headworks design but funds for engineering and construction are limited. This system enables the engineering firm to bring that community a headworks solution at a much more economical cost."

A pre-engineered and packaged system reduces construction and field installation costs while allowing for a compact footprint, says Flores. The system comes with a PLC-based control system with touch screen, color HMI, and NEMA 4X panel to operate the entire system. Five models are available to accommodate peak flow capacities from 0.5 mgd to 7.0 mgd. 800/898-9122; www.smithandloveless.com.
