There are many cases where pumping fluids and liquids is necessary; we have pumps at home to increase the water pressure we get in our taps in in the case of Indian homes, these ‘motors’ or pumps are also needed to fill up water reservoirs on the roof of our homes to make sure that we always have a nice sufficient of water available to use. However, in industries, water isn’t the only liquid that needs pumping and this means that there’s a need for not just bigger and more powerful pumping equipment – industries need pumps that will last longer as well.
In most manufacturing industries, there’s a lot of strong chemicals used as materials for manufacturing or to cool the machinery used. This is where the normal shaft driven pumps are no longer the best option available anymore. Magnetic drive pumps are compact but much more powerful and they don’t have a shaft coming out of their casing either. The shaft is a weakness when pumps are used for pumping chemicals instead of water since this is the part that needs to be protected by sealants and packaging.
As the name implies, magnetic pumps make the use of an external magnet to create the rotation that the pump needs to propel fluids. This is both a more powerful pumping solution and it requires much less power as well, making the more viable option for industries all over India. Another reason of the rise of magnetic drive pumps in India is that that these pumps are designed in a way that prevents fluids and vapours leaking from the body of the pumps, which eliminates all kinds of health and safety related risks in factories that use active chemicals.
