Magnetic Drive Pumps
Magnetic drive pumps have a similar design and operation as centrifugal pumps, except they do not have a shaft seal and use a magnetic field instead of a drive mechanism to rotate the impeller and move fluid. To operate the magnetic drive pump, an external magnet transmits motion to an internal drive magnet connected to the impeller. The drive magnet rotates around the housing and the impeller spins in synchronization, propelling fluid through the pump components.
There are several advantages to using magnetic drive pumps, including:
- Low risk of fluid and vapor emission leakage, reducing issues associated with exposure to hazardous or corrosive substances
- Simple design eliminates the need for shaft sealing
- High reliability means minimal maintenance and infrequent repairs
Magnetic Drive Pumps – A Versatile Solution for Low Viscosity Fluid Applications
Magnetic drive pumps work best for low viscous fluids and are not suitable for fluids containing solids. Most magnetic drive pump models have a seal-less design and dry-run capabilities, though we do not recommend running pumps dry for extended periods.
The versatility of magnetic drive pumps makes them suitable for a broad range of industries and applications, including:
- Bio-Fuel Production
- Chemical Production
- Medical and Pharmaceutical
- Oil Refineries
- Water Treatment Plants
