Process Pumps can operate under dry run conditions.

Press Release Summary:

Magnetically Driven Pumps are available with Dry Guard(TM) bearings, which feature diamond-like coating and are designed to minimize coefficient of friction. Featuring seal-less design, ANSI metal EZMAG(TM) 3296 is suited for difficult liquids, such as corrosives, pollutants, ultra-pure liquids, toxics, and hard-to-seal liquids. It is also offered in ISO version, Model ICM. Series 3298 includes Tefzel® lining and handles moderate to severe corrosives.

Goulds Introduces Dry Guard(TM) Bearings for Magnetic Drive Pumps

May 3, 2006, Seneca Falls, N.Y.: Goulds® magnetically driven process pumps now offer Dry Guard(TM) bearings.

Dry Guard(TM) bearings, which feature a unique diamond-like coating, are designed to significantly reduce the coefficient of friction, enabling longer periods of safe operation under dry run conditions. Dry running can inadvertently occur when a source tank empties or a valve is shut off up stream from the pump.

The Dry Guard(TM) solution is available in pump models 3296 EZMAG, ICM and 3298 series.

o The 3296 EZMAG(TM) is an ANSI metal magnetic drive process pump with a simple sealless design. The EZMAG is ideal for difficult liquids, such as corrosives, pollutants, ultra-pure liquids, toxics and hard to seal liquids. It has three patented features that maximize the product's life cycle and make it easier to maintain.

o The ICM model is the ISO version of the 3296 EZMAG, which includes all of the same features for tough applications worldwide.

o The 3298 series pumps are lined magnetic-drive pumps designed to handle moderate to severe corrosives economically. The 3298 features a thick Tefzel® lining and is available in frame mounted, close-coupled, in-line and self priming models.

"The most common mode of failure for Magnetic drive pumps is due to dry running conditions," said Ed Kupp, product manager, sealless pumps. "Dry Guard(TM) provides protection that can last for hours, enabling the operator to correct the problem before a catastrophic failure occurs, which would otherwise result in process downtime and possible safety and environmental concerns."
