5 Things you Didn’t Know About Sealless Pumps

If you don’t know very much about sealless pumps, allow me to shed a little light on why and how these zero emission pumping technologies exist.

1. Sealless pumps have been around for a very long time.While it is hard to pinpoint exactly when magnetic drive pumps were invented, the technology has existed since the early 1900’s; though the type of magnets originally used were of poor quality, meaning they had to be very large in order to transmit the required torque. Sometimes, instead of two magnets, one was used against a magnetic mass (a piece of iron, for example). This original arrangement required very large motors and was not really economically feasible. Later in the 1970’s, with the use of rare earth magnets such as samarium cobalt, the magnets were much smaller and more efficient, leading to the units being more economically feasible.
