The concept of a good magnetic coupling design is our core focus for applications involving pumps and fluid handling. These applications are most common with our customers in medical, agriculture, oil & gas, water, and automotive industries. We work closely with each of our customers to determine the best solution based upon the customer’s requirements and the environment of their application, whether it be inside the body for a medical application, or exposed to sludge and dirt for an industrial application.
Pumps used in medical and automotive applications have specific requirements to comply with strict regulations by the government and within their industry. Industrial pumps usually need a much better magnetic coupling because of the throughput requirements of moving large amounts of fluids in a short amount of time. The oil industry pumps are usually buried in sludge, rock and dirt, so their requirement is to operate in very harsh environments with the correct magnet coating. While each of the examples above is unique to their industry, our experience in providing magnets and magnet couplings is universal.
