Reliable use of canned motor pumps in the chemical industry

Canned motor pumps guarantee maximum safety for man and the environment in the various production processes of the chemical industry. Often designed for extreme conditions, they are used whenever liquids and gases have to be pumped at extreme temperatures and under potentially hazardous conditions. The pumps offer complete reliability – even at the highest pressures and performance levels. They are used whenever conventional technologies reach their limits. High system pressures, large temperature fluctuations, media that is extremely difficult to convey – HERMETIC pumps were developed for such extreme conditions.

The second hermetically-sealed containment shell of the canned motor pumps offers completely reliable protection against undesired leakage from the pumps. Also, the canned motor design (which has been well-established for decades) completely avoids the need for shaft seals, conventional bearings and couplings. The result is a high level of operational reliability, hardly any wear and, consequently, a high MTBR (“Mean Time Between Repairs”) value.

Preferred applications of hermetic pumps

Canned motor pumps are preferred in the chemical and petrochemical industry, but also for simple pumping tasks, such as circulating pumps in industrial refrigeration equipment.

In general, the following media are conveyed: aggressive, toxic, explosive, hot, cryogenic, malodorous, volatile, flammable or carcinogenic substances – in brief, media that represent an environmental and health hazard.
