Smith & Loveless Non-Clog Pumps

The pumps incorporated in Smith & Loveless stations are heavy duty designs with a minimum 1.875" solid stainless steel shaft and bronze seal housing. High efficiency impeller and motor designs provide years of dependable trouble free operation.

Smith & Loveless offers two styles of pumps, vacuum-primed and flooded suction.

Vacuum-primed pump
Vacuum-Primed Pump
The vacuum-primed pumps are designed to prime in less than 60 seconds under standard rated conditions. These pumps are designed to stay primed indefinitely. To view the 4-Step vacuum priming process, click here. The published efficiencies of these pumps represent true pump efficiency. There are no belt losses, bleed line losses or any other losses to be added. These pumps are use a straight run from the wet well to pump into the eye of the impeller to prevent clogging. These pumps have no suction restrictions.

Flooded-suction pump
Flooded-Suction Pump
The Smith & Loveless flooded-suction pumps are manufactured with heavy cast-iron balanced impellers, bronze mechanical seals and the largest pump shaft in the industry. You can choose either a double volute or dual-curve volute for reduced radial thrust. The tight clearance between the front head and impeller minimizes recirculation, resulting in improved efficiency. The motor-pump shaft on Smith & Loveless equipment does not require a seal, reducing maintenance and expenses. For easy maintenance, the entire rotating assembly can be lifted out of this pump simply by removing the capscrews.

Wet Well Mounted Positive Prime Pump Stations

Consider this style station in lieu of the submersible designs to reduce the confined space issues associated with a standard design. Pumps and controls are contained within a Fiberglass Environmentally Controlled housing where the equipment is operated and maintained above ground. Operations and inspections of the equipment are accomplished with reduced labor and safety concerns. These stations are available in the standard above ground, recessed and capsular concepts for normal outside installations or inside your own design building.

Smith & Loveless released their newest variation to the wet well mounted pump station, the Formula X, in October 2001. To read more about the features of the Formula X, click here.
