Mag Drive Pump Guide


What is a Mag Drive Pump?

A Mag Drive Pump features your chosen pump technology such as Centrifugal and Rotary Vane but will be powered by a magnetically driven motor. This means that they do not have a mechanical seal between the pump and motor, giving them a sealless design. The mechanical seal component often leaves other pumps on the market prone to leakage.

How does a Mag Drive Pump work?

Power is supplied to the pump’s motor which rotates the motor shaft and turns a magnet. This magnet then drives an internal magnet which is typically surrounded by metal or a high-grade thermoplastic and is coupled to the internal rotation part of the pump that moves the fluid, typically an impeller. This turns the internal rotation and transfers your fluid through the pump.

How do Magnetically Driven Pumps differ from Mechanically Sealed Pumps?

Benefits of using a Magnetically Driven Pump over a Mechanically Sealed Pump:

Which Pumps can be magnetically driven?

There is a range of pumps available on the market with a magnetically driven motor including:

Advantages & Disadvantages of a Mag Drive Pump


Plus, each Mag Drive Pump will also benefit from the advantages of each individual pump type, for example, the standard benefits of a Centrifugal Pump can also be applied to a Mag Drive Centrifugal Pump.
