PISTA® Control Panels

After 24/7 of reliable service for 20+ years, the weather and environment can take its toll on the vacuum priming panel for the top mounted PISTA® TURBO™ Grit Pump or the Control Panel for the entire PISTA® Grit Removal System. In either case, Smith & Loveless can assist you in replacing and upgrading either panel.

Smith & Loveless can help you upgrade to the new SONIC STREAMLINE® STREAMLINE™ Prime Sensing System when the vacuum priming panel is replaced. Because the PISTA® is typically located outside, the vacuum priming panel enclosure comes standard in a NEMA 3R model. It is also available in NEMA 4 (watertight) or NEMA 4X (watertight, stainless steel) models. The NEMA 4X model is highly recommended for coastal areas. For colder climates, ask about Smith & Loveless’ Cold Weather or  Extreme Cold Weather package.


If you’re replacing the control panel, Smith & Loveless can assist in providing an exact replacement the your PISTA® Grit Removal System Control Panel. However, if you’ve found your system hit by heavily laden grit flows from frequent rainstorms, Smith & Loveless can work with you to install an automatic system that senses these weather events and triggers continuous pump out of the grit chamber to the dewatering system for 24 hours until the heavy grit load has subsided. These control panels also come standard in a NEMA 3R enclosure, with NEMA 4 and NEMA 4X also available.
