Mag Drive Pumps: Why They Work - How They Fail
MetadataShow full item record
As the use of magnetic drive pumps become more popular and sometimes demanded, knowing how to install, operate and troubleshoot mag drive pumps becomes essential. System design, purchasing, installing, and commissioning mag drive pumps can be an experience. The intent is to share with users and manufacturers the problems and successes associated with mag drive pump design, installation, and operation. Exploring problems in the design and installation of pumps and safety systems should give insight to those planning on installing new pumps. The detailed review of pump failures will give everyone an opportunity to see failures associated with mag drive pump operation. The experience was gained during the startup and operation of 20 mag drive pumps in ethylene oxide service over a four year period.
