Smith & Loveless division offers faster impeller lead times

Sponsored by

LENEXA, KS, June 25, 2009 -- Smith & Loveless After Market Division now offers two to three business day lead times as its standard for the majority of Smith & Loveless four-inch and six-inch wastewater pumps.

Smith & Loveless' impellers are custom trimmed for each S&L Pump to ensure premium pump performance. Only the vains of the impellers are trimmed, leaving the shrouds at full diameter to prevent solids and stringy matter from accumulating around the shaft. The tight clearance between the impeller and front head minimizes recirculation, therefore improving pump efficiency.

The use of impellers can enable pump life of greater than 35 years; seven times longer than submersible pumps, which must utilize wear plates. Wear plates must be constantly adjusted in order to maintain pump efficiency, which translates into increased material and labor costs.

Founded in 1946, Smith & Loveless Inc. is a global leader in the water and wastewater industry, offering a complete line of equipment and boasting installations in more than 70 nations around the world.
