Canned motor pumps are widely considered the safest and most reliable pumping solution. The biggest benefit of a Canned Motor Pump is that there is no mechanical seal that leaks to the atmosphere. Instead of using a mechanical seal in the pump, the motor is designed as a pressure vessel. The pump and motor use a common shaft and liquid cannot escape to the atmosphere. Canned Motor Pumps offer the following key benefits to your pump operations:
Suitable for handling flammable,
explosive, toxic, corrosive and
Hermetically sealed and suitable for handling pressures from vacuum to high-pressure conditions. The electrical motor is separated from the liquid inside using a thin “can”.
No Shaft Seal
Suitable for pumping in high pressure systems, high or low temperature fluids and high melting point fluids
No External Lubrication
Self-lubricated bearings eliminate the need for external fluid supply and reduce maintenance.
Small footprint and compact design reduces installation costs and requires minimal foundation requirements.
Low Noise and Vibration
Totally enclosed with neither motor fans nor exposed bearings.
