Advantages and limitations of magnetic drive pumps ...

One of major limitations of magnetic drive pumps is the risk associated with running dry. Because the pumped liquid will act as lubricant and coolant, in case of dry run, the bearing and some other parts could overheat and eventually become damaged. In services and applications with risks of dry running, magnetic drive pumps should not be used.

Understanding Centrifugal Pump and Motor Torque-Speed Curves

Oct 08, 2019· Like pumps, motors produce a torque-speed curve of their own. By overlaying the torque-speed curve of a pump and a motor, one can verify that the motor is producing enough accelerating torque to drive the pump to full speed, as shown below. In this overlay the shaded area reflects the accelerating torque available from the motor to drive the pump.
