Grit washing solution for abrasive particles

April 23, 2024

Smith & Loveless Inc. highlights the PISTA TURBO Grit Washer, an advanced grit washing solution designed to effectively remove abrasive particles, extend the lifespan of downstream treatment plant equipment, and reduce maintenance expenses. This cutting-edge grit washer technology utilizes proven techniques to optimize grit separation, meeting rigorous environmental standards. The PISTA TURBO Grit Washer boasts a sleeker, space-saving design when compared to European-style grit washers.

Employing TRI-CLEANSE TECHNOLOGY, the PISTA TURBO Grit Washer delivers clean, dry grit with less than 5% organic material. This process minimizes odors associated with putrescible organics and mitigates costs related to landfill restrictions. By incorporating air infusion, water flushing, and grit agitation, the technology ensures thorough cleaning and prepares the grit for disposal in a grit dumpster.

The grit slurry enters from the second stage PISTA Grit Concentrator, into the PISTA TURBO Grit Washer’s energy dissipation zone to reduce turbulence. Parallel plates in the settling zone enhance the retention of fine grit by providing the surface area required to capture 95% of grit particles down to 100 and even 75 microns, ensuring optimal performance.
