The main challenge for these devices are the fluids that are needed to be moved from one place to another are of diverse nature depending upon the type of industry the organisation is operating. Of the different types of such devices mag drive pumps became a rage worldwide because of its ability to move hazardous, corrosive chemicals and solid laden liquids. They are having some unique features:-
It is capable of handling contaminated liquids, solids etc.
Prevention of dry run
Ability to operate under extreme conditions (up to 120C temperature and 20.6 bar pressure) and produce quality output
It is corrosion resistant since its inner parts includes non-metallic wet parts and seal less structure.
The pump is either close coupled or long coupled.
Ability to generate flow up to 300m/ hour
Also, this environment friendly machine is easier to handle ensuring quality of output and operator safety. Maintenance is easier and related cost is also lesser.
Moving abrasive type of sandy liquids and slurries for different wash down applications, waste treatment, construction sites and oily water separator, Mechanical Diaphragm Pumps are used largely because of its chemical resistant properties. It has both self-priming and dry run functionality which clearly gives it an edge over other same type of devices available in the market. In addition, it can handle large solids apart from abrasive liquids.
For the movement of liquids like surface water or waste water or sewage from typical areas where drainage is almost impossible due to gravity,packaged pumping stations can come handy. This high end device generally made of various impact resistant materials like different types of plastics such as - polyethylene, glass reinforced plastic or precast concrete. This device consists of control equipment, pipes and submersible pumps. They are mainly used to minimize the installation time of plumbing equipment in such type of construction sites where development activities are in progress.
