Why sealless pumps are safe and secure
Minimising the impact of manufacturing and other operations on both the local and wider environment is an essential, legal and a moral obligation.
Any leak is a potential hazard. Sealed pumps, by their operation, are designed to leak. They often also require complicated seal support systems, with further inherent dangers, including the need to be maintained and topped-up on a regular basis.
Sealless pumps are self-contained. The pumped product or liquid is completely enclosed within the body of the pumps, exactly where it should be. The containment shell provides a complete mechanical barrier, preventing leaks, escapes and emissions. There is no reliance on any external system or method of prevention.
Competitive alternatives often require additional systems and ancillaries, all of which also have potential for leakage, spillage and cross contamination. Some even require that the recovered liquid that has been emitted, for example, across the seals, be burnt off via a flare or similar, which in itself incurs further restrictions.
Magnetic drive pumps are hermetically sealed. There is absolutely no potential for leaks or emissions.
