Still Not Sure About Switching to Sealless?

See what you know – Read this article at Fluid Handling Pro

As much as sealless pumps are very much a proven technology, some specifiers in the chemical industry remain cautious about making the changeover from conventional sealed pumps.

Magnetic drive pumps have evolved to become a cost-effective and above all safe option for the transfer of fluids including those that are toxic, pungent, extremely hot or cold, corrosive or otherwise hazardous.

Often seen as the more expensive choice, when looked at as a whole-life proposition, sealless pumps are in fact a highly cost-effective alternative.

Think Sealless Solutions – Why Sealless is the Solution

We have the Know How.  Of course, we always like to say yes to our customers, but they seem to like it when we say no!:

 

Sealless pumps have no mechanical seals or seal support systems and only a single fully trapped gasket that ensures the integrity of the system, even at high temperatures and pressures.

The mean time between failure (MTBF) for sealless magnetic drive pumps is typically three times longer than for mechanically sealed pumps. 

As the first in the world to develop the concept of the magnetic drive pump, we have combined cutting-edge technology with over seventy years of expertise and experience in sealless pumps to provide you with complete peace of mind.

Please contact us and ask for our Know How Guide to Sealless Pumps or see www.hmdkontro.com/think-sealless

Self Priming Sealless – Ideal for Offloading Applications

The SPGS pump is a self-priming magnetic drive pump designed for the reliable transfer of liquids ranging from water and benign fluids to hazardous and toxic substances.

These sealless pumps, which have the significant benefit of being leak-free, are particularly suitable for offloading liquids where total containment is crucial including emptying sumps, road and rail tankers etc.

SPGS Pump

Benefits of the SPGS pump include low running costs, simple installation and ease of maintenance plus general compliance with all specifications required by recognised industry sectors.

The SPGS covers a hydraulic range that is split between two frame sizes with differential head capabilities up to 52m / 170ft and flow rates up to 25 m³/hr / 110gpm. Standard construction is stainless steel with silicon carbide internal bearings and options of Alloy 20 or Alloy C with PTFE gaskets available.

For further details please see: hmdkontro.com/spgs

Think Sealless System – Why are HMD Kontro magnetic drive pumps different?

We have manufactured only sealless pumps since 1947 and so the design is specific and not a modified mechanically sealed pump.  They are made to a very robust design and engineered to last and to perform.

 

The containment shell of an HMD Kontro Sealless Pump is either of welded construction to ASME VIII pressure vessel standards with a thicker and guaranteed wall thickness or is the latest composite ZeroLoss® shell. The latter resulting in improved efficiency and reduced equipment life cycle costs.

Other magnetic drive pumps usually have hydroformed / deep-drawn shells, which are much thinner and weaker than the HMD Kontro design.  Rotating parts in our pumps are dynamically balanced ensuring smooth, quiet operation and longevity.

The magnets are fully encapsulated on the outer magnet ring, ensuring their protection from being chipped during pump re- assembly and against corrosion from the pumped liquid in the unlikely event of containment shell breach. It also means that the component can be easily cleaned in usual workshop conditions.

HMD Kontro pumps utilise a modular cartridge, which can reduce maintenance time considerably. This method of construction means that there are many common components for each product line throughout the HMD Kontro portfolio, reducing the need for a large stock of spare parts in a multiple pump installation.

Sealless pumps don’t leak, meaning that they can help reduce process inefficiencies, maximise output and minimise the risks posed to your process environment by hazardous and volatile materials.

Think Sealless System – Why are magnetic drive pumps different?

A sealless pump is similar to a conventional centrifugal pump, but without packed glands or mechanical seals. The dynamic seal that would normally be used to seal the impeller shaft is instead replaced by a static containment shell, or shroud, to form a completely sealed liquid end or pressure boundary.

 

Prime mover energy is transmitted to the sealed liquid end and the impeller by a bank of external magnets, which pass force through the containment shell to the impeller shaft.

Mechanical seals are designed to leak, maintaining their sealing capability by leaking small amounts of fluid as a means of keeping the seal faces lubricated. This leakage then reaches the environment as either liquid or vapour via a process referred to as fugitive emission.

Why would you buy a pump that leaks?!  Mechanical seals are widely regarded as the weakest point in any pumping system accounting for a high proportion 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.

Furthermore, seals, like bearings, must wear. As they wear, the seal faces lose their effectiveness and liquid loss through the seal increases. These fugitive emissions can be costly, resulting in lost time and money, as well as decreased worksite safety.

Sealless pumps don’t leak, meaning that they can help reduce process inefficiencies, maximise output and minimise the risks posed to your process environment and people including from hazardous and volatile materials.

Without seals, which will ultimately fail, requiring expensive maintenance, sealless magnetic drive pumps represent a cost-effective and highly reliable alternative to traditional sealed pump designs.

Performance Under Pressure!

When the pressure is high, such as in densitometer sampling and similar applications, the high pressure HPGSP range are the perfect pumps.

Original equipment manufacturers worldwide have discovered the benefits of the HPGSP pump when checking the quality of the product passing down a high-pressure pipeline. The pump is used on these densitometer skids to take a sample of the fluid out of the main product pipeline, which can be up to 2m / 80” in diameter, and return it after analysis.

Many of these pipelines and metering stations can be located in remote regions. Therefore, a pump with no mechanical seals or seal support systems, with non-wearing silicon carbide bushes and a duty point that, once the pump is set, does not need adjustment, is great from a service viewpoint. The HPGSP pumps are fully compliant with the requirements of API 685.

The HPGSP pump’s ability to withstand high system pressures, together with its sealless construction, providing enhanced safety in operation, means that the HPGSP eliminates the need for expensive callouts, downtime and repairs associated with mechanical seals, which can be very expensive for this application.

The HPGSP range is a comprehensive family of pumps able to withstand high system pressures up to 185 bar / 2700 psi and flow rates of 290 m3/h / 1500 USgpm, suitable for applications involving volatile products such as crude oil, diesel, jet fuel, condensate, propane, as well as other similar petrochemical products.

It Can Take The Heat! The CS Sealless Pump For Heat Transfer in Hot Oil Systems

A Unique Sealless Pump for Heat Transfer in Hot Oil Systems

Isolating the pump from the heat source has usually been essential in a hot oil system.  However, thanks to its unique torque ring, our CS pump requires no cooling fluids or heat exchangers during operation.

The CS Sealless Pump is the perfect choice

The pump is totally self-venting and the magnetic coupling is immersed in the hot oil. Not only that, the torque ring design offers a built-in soft start for viscous liquids, and the energy created adds to the efficiency of the system.

Simple to operate and maintain, cost-effective to run and capable of operating up to 350°C / 660°F without cooling as standard (a 450°C/842°F option is available on request), this all makes the HMD Kontro CS sealless pump the ideal choice.

Benefits of the CS Pump

  • Ideal for heat transfer liquids
  • Sealless design provides total product containment
  • No product cooling required for temperatures up to 350°C / 660°F as standard
  • One fully confined Casing Gasket to eliminate ‘blowout’ risk
  • Built-in soft start feature, which is ideal for viscous start up

In addition, the torque ring drive positively contributes to the efficiency of the hot oil system and the CS can also be used in toxic, aggressive, hot, crystallising and high value processes.

Now with Longer MTBF for Increased Operational Efficiency

The recent upgrade of the outer magnet ring (OMR) on the CS range now offers significant additional advances in magnetic coupling robustness, leading to increased MTBF (mean time between failure), reduced downtime / increased uptime and increased operational efficiency.

The OMR upgrade maintains similar performance and maintains reliability

The retro-fittable OMR provides shielded magnets that retain the same level of performance and eliminate any potential for damage.  The new OMR has improved cyclic thermal duty whilst the identical coupling power produced means that the upgrade maintains similar performance to maintain reliability.

The encapsulated magnets on the OMR are made of samarium cobalt and have increased resistance in corrosive applications.  They also provide higher efficiency by reducing slip and improved reliability because no tie bolts are used in the retention of the magnets.
