Micropump introduces EagleDrive electromagnetic pump drives
Micropump recently introduced its EagleDrive series of electromagnetic pump drives. The EagleDrive pump series includes several improvements in speed and power – all housed in a compact package, according to a news release from the company.
Micropump leadership says that the key features make the pumps easier for customers to use and maintain. The improvements over drives currently available include:
- Higher speeds (up to 10,000 rpm) for higher flow rates
- Increased torque (up to 20 oz-in) for higher flow rates with continuous duty pressures
- Smaller package size for easier system integration
The pump drives are available in two sizes. Customers can also choose an IP-55 rated package or an unpackaged product for OEM applications.
“The EagleDrive offers a significant advantage in the areas of size, performance, and ease-of-integration over our current I-Drive and competing products. We see this drive as being a real game changer for our customers by giving them significant competitive advantage,” said Alan Ruth, general manager, Micropump.
Micropump developed the first magnetically driven gear pumps in 1960. These pumps eliminate the need for dynamic shaft seals, minimizing the risk of leaks and contamination. A few years later, they introduced their innovative I-Drive electromagnetic drive technology, which removed all moving parts external to the pump chamber, reducing part count and increasing performance and reliability.
Micropump is part of IDEX Corporation, a global fluidics leader serving high-growth specialized markets. Micropump is the originator of magnetic drive gear pump technology and, supplies products around the globe through its sales offices in Europe and Asia.
