To better provide for unique conditions for grit removal, Smith & Loveless have released their PISTA VIO Grit Removal Chamber. The variable inlet outlet (VIO) design allows for the chamber to fit into tight spaces with specific layout requirements, providing the ability to arrange the inlet and outlet chambers at any angle up to the full 360 ° of the chamber. The unique baffling and geometry work together to induce a true force vortex flow pattern that causes grit to be hydraulically swept along the floor towards the lower collection and storage hopper.

The chamber achieves 95 percent grit removal efficiency of particles down to 100 microns in size across all flow conditions. The PISTA VIO offers exceptional performance and reliability during low-flow, average daily, and peak flow conditions without deterioration with its 5:1 turndown capability.
