Think Sealless – How Sealless Pumps Save You Money

Using magnetic drive pumps, you can expect savings from concept to completion of your project and beyond, in the areas of capital outlay, installation, servicing, project management and operating costs.

Sealless pumps require minimal maintenance and monitoring and, due to their modular construction, servicing onsite is easy and straightforward. No special tools are required and with common components, it means your stock of spare parts and inventory is reduced, again resulting in lower operational costs.

With their simple design and no complex seals or sealing systems to support, costs are kept to a minimum. In the unlikely event of breakdown the pumps can be repaired onsite and the cartridges can be replaced in just  20 minutes using basic tools.  Other benefits include:

  • Greater automation and less demand on staff time
  • Suitability for a wide range of applications
  • MTBF is typically 3x that of sealed pumps

With mechanical seals regarded as the weakest point in any pumping system and accounting for 80% of all pump failures, it’s easy to see how HMD sealless pumps can save you time and money.

Think Sealless – Why buy a pump that leaks?

Think Sealless represents HMD Kontro’s passion to inform the process industry about this engineering revolution and the benefits of magnetic drive pumps over traditional sealed pumps, including those with complex and costly seal support systems.

Why buy a pump that leaks? How long is it since you evaluated the considerable cost savings and safety benefits of a sealless, magnetic drive pump against the traditional type of pump, which depends upon seals, with their inherent risk of leaks, to maintain integrity and contain your product?  If it is some while, you may be surprised at how often sealless is now the solution, and how making a step change in your process technology could benefit your business.

Sealless pumps are essentially conventional centrifugal pumps without packed glands or seals. The seal is replaced by a static containment shell or shroud to form a completely sealed liquid end or pressure boundary.

Sealless pumps are easier to maintain, have fewer working parts, no potential leak paths and no support systems to design, install and maintain. Maintenance is simple, and the life cost is significantly lower than that of a mechanical sealed pump.

Thanks to a modular construction and the ability to dismantle HMD Kontro sealless pumps without special tools, servicing of the pumps on site is simple and straightforward.

When it comes to applications in the chemical, oil, petroleum, gas production, pharmaceutical and general process industries that involve toxic, fine, corrosive and aggressive liquids, our sealless magnetic drive pumps deliver the rock solid, dependable, and reliable performance that engineers demand and that industrial regulations require.
