Magnetic Drive Pumps for Chemical Plant
NFS helped one of our valued clients by introducing new pump technology.
Our client is a chemical plant surrounded by residential and waterways. This business cannot allow for leaks or spills of vapor or media. The cost of prevention is significantly less than the cost of a catastrophic failure, repairs and is far less expensive than an environmental disaster.
Their current system included a line of long coupled centrifugal pumps. NFS introduced magnetic-driven pumps which have benefits suited to harsh environments such as these.
A magnetic drive pump uses a balanced magnetic field to create the rotation of the fluid impeller. Unlike a traditional centrifugal pump which has a direct drive connection between impeller and motor, a mag-drive pump eliminates the direct drive mechanism and replaces it with a magnetic field.
By eliminating the direct drive mechanism, we also eliminated the opportunity for leaking through the seal and shaft as the impeller and the pumped fluid are contained within a hermetically sealed housing.
After initial testing of the product, our client is in the process of rotating out with the old, and in with the new. A great result for our client, the surrounding residents and the environment.Back to News
