ANSI Magnetic Drive PFA lined Pumps

ISO logo

ISO 9001:2015 Certified

Magnatex/Texel MTA Series sealless, mag-drive pumps feature a transfer molded, mechanically attached PFA lining that is thicker and more uniform than our competitors' roto-molded linings. Ideal for almost all industrial chemical applications including high purity and elevated temperature applications, our pumps offer many enhanced characteristics over the competition. MTA Series pumps conform to ANSI B73.3 Standards. Sealless design helps eliminate "Reportable Release" issues.

Magnetic Drive PFA lined Pumps

All Magnatex pumps and spare parts come with a 1-year unconditional warranty on materials and workmanship.

Transfer-compression molding allows positive, interlocking casing linings 5-6 mm thick that stay in place; ideal for vacuum and higher temperature applications.

  • Mag drive sealless pumps eliminate the need for expensive mechanical seals; eliminating costly shutdowns and repairs, which helps reduce "Reportable Release" issues.
  • No maintenance intensive mechanical seals required. No seal flush or complex and expensive seal pot systems to monitor or maintain.
  • Straddle-mounted inner magnet system with bearings on both sides of the magnet - this design reduces shaft and bearing loads when compared to our competitors overhung, cantilevered, inner magnet designs
  • Slip-fit construction, which allows easy on-site maintenance with no special tools or fixtures required
  • Large internal flow paths, which means the pumps can easily handle 1% solids @ 500µ and up to 8% solids @ 100µ. Optional baffle-plated rear casing enables enhanced solids handling capability. Optional proprietary self-cleaning strainer technology enables us to handle even higher solids percentages if necessary
  • Safely handles toxic, noxious, corrosive or high-temperature liquids with increased safety to personnel and the environment
  • Special high-temperature construction is available to handle up to 800°F
  • Several dual containment systems are available that virtually eliminate any leakage to the environment when handling extremely hazardous chemicals

Magnatex MTA Series Competition Comparison

MAGNATEX COMPETITION
High pressure transfer molding @ 1200psi produces a lining with a dense, uniform thickness and superior surface finish, all of which contribute to superior service life in demanding chemical services. High pressure molding also eliminates any air pockets between the casing lining and the armoring, which is critical in high temperature services. Competitors use a cheaper, atmospheric pressure, rotomolding process which results in a thinner, less dense, more permeable lining material with a less uniform surface finish. Rotomolded linings may have air bubbles trapped behind them which can lead to cracked linings in high temperature applications.
Magnatex PFA linings are 5-6mm thick and therefore will last longer in service than thinner ones of the same material and even longer when compared to the ETFE and PVDF linings offered by most of our competitors. Most competitors' linings are just 3-4 mm thick which means they have proportionately less corrosion and permeation resistance than Magnatex lined pumps.
High pressure molding at 1200 psi produces a positive locking of the lining material and prevents lining movement in high vacuum or low suction pressure applications. Most competitors have no mechanical means of restraining the casing liner which can result in lining movement in high vacuum or low suction pressure applications. Shifting or movement of the lining may result in linings collapsing onto the internal rotating elements leading to catastrophic failure of the pump.
PFA offers the broadest range of resistance to chemical attack, lowest permeation rate and highest temperature capability of all the fluoropolymer materials, which ensures the maximum possible service life for lined magnetic drive pumps. Generally only available in cheaper ETFE (Ethylenetetrafluoroethylene) material which has less chemical resistance, higher permeability and lower temperature resistance than PFA.
The extra long main shaft bushing provides greater stability for operation across the entire hydraulic range of the pump, with smooth, quiet operation and extremely low vibration. Greater shaft support surface area means lower hydraulic loading, less wear and longer service life. Competitors generally offer shorter main shaft bushings resulting in a smaller surface area to support dynamic shaft loads. Less surface area, less pump life.
Completely seamless inner magnet lining which eliminates any potential leak path for the process fluid to reach and attack the inner magnet. Most competitors have seams in the inner magnet lining that can allow aggressive chemicals to penetrate the lining which causes the magnet segments to swell and corrode, leading to catastrophic failure of the pump.
