What Makes Magnetically-Driven Pumps Superior to the Other Pumps?

Mag-drive pumps feature a specialized magnetic connection between the motor and the actual drive. The magnets used are incredibly powerful in order for the pump to function correctly. One set is attached to the end of the motor shaft while the second set it housed within the impeller assembly. As the drive shaft rotates, it rotates the impeller. This helps to create a super drive pump design.

Applications for Mag-Drive Pumps

There are countless applications for which mag-drive pumps are ideal. Some of the most common are listed below:

  • Waste Water Treatment
  • Chemical Manufacturing
  • Electroplating and Anodizing
  • Steel Processing
  • Mining

Five Factors That Make Mag-Drive Pumps Superior to Other Designs

While there are many factors which make industrial magnetic drive pumps superior to other types, the five most important are listed below:

  • Sealless Technology
  • Run-Dry Capability
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Durability
  • Low Maintenance

Sealless Technology

While other pumps use what is known as a direct drive mechanism, which means the shaft is directly attached to the impeller, mag-drive pumps do not. This means there is no seal in place which could eventually leak and fail. This means that they can handle pumping harsh, caustic chemicals without worry. The seals, of other types of pumps, can be eaten away by these chemicals. That is why the mag-drive pumps are more reliable than other types of pumps.

Run-Dry Capability

Many pumps can be damaged in a run-dry situation, but not magnetically driven pumps. This can occur when another part of the liquid supply system has a failure. Many other types of pumps require the liquid to help with the build up of friction heat. In systems where constant supervision is not possible, this is a great asset.

Chemical Resistance

By design, not all pumps can handle pumping harsh chemicals. Because there is no seal to fail or to be exposed to dangerous chemicals, this type of pump is ideal.


The magnetic centrifugal pump is designed to be long lasting and reliable. They can handle:

  • Extreme Temperature Environments
  • Transfer of Harsh Chemicals
  • Dry Running Capable

When operations require a pump that needs little maintenance and can handle various harsh environmental factors, the mag-drive pump is the way to go. Operators can count on mag-drive pumps to run reliably for years.

Low Maintenance

The fact that the industrial magnetic drive pump requires little to no maintenance makes them an excellent pumping solution. With no seals to replace or monitor and its resistance to chemicals and corrosion, mag-drive pumps can be relied upon for maintenance-free operation.
