See the Future of Water at S&L WEFTEC Booth #2017

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Lenexa, Kan. — Smith & Loveless invites media and show goers to see and experience S&L' pumping, headworks and treatment systems like never before -- at Booth No. 2017 at WEFTEC.17, Sept. 30-Oct. 2, at Chicago's McCormick Place. Visitors will experience advanced wastewater technology in life-like sizes when they put on Augmented Reality (AR) headsets and check out holograms of leading treatment systems, not to mention seeing and touching real-life equipment including the new EVERLAST™ Well Mounted Pump Station launched last year.

Smith & Loveless is also announcing at WEFTEC a new strategic alliance to bring forward the water industry’s first green biofilm technology.

Finally, S&L will be presenting various technical programs for the WEFTEC.17 technical program, leading off with a Saturday headworks-focused workshop called "Do's and Don'ts, Hands-On O&M, and Grit Sampling and Characterization", featuring experts from S&L, Black & Veatch, Garver and CP&Y. Additionally, S&L is co-presenting two papers both occurring on Tues., Oct. 3: Mobile Session #430: "Grit Removal Sizing Calcs Based on Liquid/ Particle Movement Equation", presented by Deju Linunnahar, Ph.D., Smith & Loveless (Mobile Session at S&L Booth 2017 at 2:10 p.m.) and Technical Session #412: "Self-Performed Lift Station Assessment and Replacement: Managing Assets Through Tiered Standardization," co-Presented by Bryan Phinney, Keller Associates Inc., Jon Brown, Fremont Co., Idaho, and S&L's Alex Tabb.

Following are previews for the S&L 2017 booth:

In the AR zone, visitors will walk through complete Model R OXIGEST® and TITAN MBR™ Treatment Plants and look inside SCHLOSS™ Bar Screens and Classifiers — all in one booth. Visitors can sign up to win an Xbox One Video Game Console, and everyone walks away with a free S&L VR Headset while supplies last.

As displayed in the booth’s Pumping Zone, the EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Station represents the next generation of affordable, operator-safe and long-lasting S&L above-grade pumping systems.
