The mean time between failure (MTBF) for magnetic drive sealless pumps is typically three times that of mechanically sealed pumps.
According to a report by the United Kingdom Health and Safety Executive, mechanical seals are widely regarded as the weakest point in any pumping system that uses them. They account for 80% of all pump failures, the remainder being leakage through static seals such as gaskets / O rings and bearing failure.
It follows that if you eliminate the problem, you eliminate the failures and save costs. HMD Kontro sealless pumps are magnetically driven, they have no mechanical seals or seal support systems, and only a single, fully trapped gasket that ensures systems integrity, even at high temperatures and pressures.
Sealless pumps are easier to maintain, have fewer working parts, no potential leak paths and no support systems to design, install and maintain. There is less time and cost involved in system design and procurement plus no concerns regarding material compatibility or appropriate buffer liquids.
By specifying HMD Kontro sealless pumps you can be absolutely positive that you have made the right decision. Combining cutting-edge technology with over seventy years of expertise and experience, since we were the first in the world to develop the concept, our magnetic drive pumps provide complete peace of mind.
