EXTREMELY LOW RISK OF LEAKS. LOW MAINTENANCE PUMPS
Magnetic-driven pumps or Mag-drive pumps are popularly known as sealless pumps. They are the top option in applications where leaks cannot be tolerated. These include processes that use aggressive liquids like acids, alkalis, toxics, pollutants, corrosives, and other fluids that pose great risk to people and the environment when leaked.
Another important function of mag-drive pump is moving difficult liquids. Some process fluids crystallize on seal faces and cause seal failures in sealed pumps. To resolve this problem, sealed pumps are installed with a flush system which makes the system more costly to maintain. In such case, a mag-drive pump is a better equipment to use.
On the other hand, mag-drive pumps cannot be used in applications that have limited power ratings and in processes that deal with solid-laden liquids.
