Blackmer, part of PSG, a Dover company announce the availability of its new MAGNES Series Sliding Vane Magnetic Drive Pumps. The pump represents the latest advancement in seal-less magnetic drive technology.
Blackmer MAGNES Series pumps incorporate innovative design features that provide a unique combination of flexibility, functionality and reliability. The result is a product that solves typical legacy operating pain points, including unexpected dry run; pumping fluids with solids; handling of fluids with entrained vapours and poor inlet conditions; and inflexible pump operating range, while also delivering technically superior handling of hazardous chemicals in severe-duty applications.
Blackmer MAGNES Series pumps are positive displacement rotary vane pumps that use a magnetic drive without dynamic seals, providing a leak-free pumping solution for difficult-to-seal, expensive, valuable, dangerous and hazardous liquids. Its rotary vane magnetic drive pump design combines the leak-free benefits of a magnetic drive pump with the numerous advantages of sliding vane technology, including self-priming, line-stripping, product recovery, indefinite dry-run capability, solids handling, thin/thick viscosity flexibility, easy maintenance, low to zero NPSHr, 70% to 90% pump efficiencies and full-curve operational flexibility.
The pumps are currently available in a 3-inch model in both ductile iron and stainless steel construction, with a 4-inch model expected to be released in January 2021. MAGNES pumps are available with an optional close-coupled drive design that enables quick and easy system setup, eliminating time-consuming alignment processes.
