Magnetically driven pumps are acknowledged as being the ideal solution for handling aggressive liquids and 3M, a leading manufacturer of mag-drive pumps, has recently introduced its T MAG-M pumps.

Mag-Drive Pumps Best Solution for Aggressive Liquids

Pump Engineering

Available through liquids handling specialists PUMP ENGINEERING the T MAG-M is a horizontal, sealless peripheral pump with a permanent magnet drive system and no mechanical seals. It is particularly suited to applications involving low flows and high heads.

T MAG-M pumps offer the important benefits of mag-drive pumping. For example, long-life, reliable performance, low-maintenance and as a result of having no seals, the potential for leaks and emissions means optimum safety and reliability, even in the most challenging applications.

Features of the T MAG-M pump include; a high power, synchronous magnetic coupling which can be operated at liquid temperatures up to 350°C (without the need for external cooling), an innovative hydraulic design with a self-balancing impeller which improves wear ring life and a sealing system with flat gaskets which prevents leakage to the atmosphere. Also, the rear shell is made in one single piece without welding and its ellipsoidal profile helps it to withstand higher pressures than traditional designs. The bearings are available in a choice of materials to suit specific applications, including Silicon Carbide, Tungsten Carbide, Carbon to enable dry running and filled PTFE when Carbon cannot be used.

The pumps are designed to deliver flows up to 12,000 lit/hr at pressures up to 16 bar. Higher pressures versions are also available which are capable of operating on system pressures up to 150 bar. ATEX certified options are also available.

3M mag-drive pumps have numerous applications, for example, transferring acids, alkalis, hydrocarbons, heat transfer oils, liquid gases, toxic and explosive chemicals in industrial and chemical industries. They are also suitable for pumping low viscosity surfactants, acids and CIP chemicals in pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. In the food and drink industries they are ideal for handling CIP chemicals, such as sodium hydroxide, nitric acid and hydrogen peroxide and pumping water treatment chemicals.
