Mag-Drive Pumps for Peace-of-Mind Pumping
A new range of magnetic drive pumps, which are available in three types of hydraulic configuration; centrifugal, regenerative turbine and sliding vane, is the latest addition to the range of products supplied by PUMP ENGINEERING.
3M Mag-drive pumps offer users important benefits such as long-life, reliable performance and low maintenance. In particular, the absence of seals eliminates the potential for leaks and emissions and so guarantees a higher level of safety and reliability compared to other pump types. In addition, many of the pumps and spares are directly interchangeable with Caster® pumps at a competitive price.
The choice of different hydraulic configurations ensures optimum application flexibility. For example, centrifugal with closed impeller for liquids transfer and circulation, providing flows up to 1000 m3/hr and heads to 1300 metres, peripheral regenerative turbine, for smooth, pulsation-free low and medium flows up to 10 m3 /hr and heads up to 1000 metres. Finally, sliding vane pumps for pulsation-free dosing and injection applications providing flows up to 3000 lit/hr and pressures up to 13 bar.
Thanks to their design and materials of construction, 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 and pumping low viscosity surfactants, acids and CIP chemicals in pharmaceutical and cosmetics 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.
3M pumps, which, depending on the model can handle liquids at temperatures from 150°C to +450°C, are available in a wide choice of materials including stainless steel, Hastelloy C, Incoloy, Titanium, PP and PVDF. API versions are also available.
