Mag Drive Pump Comparison

Article sections

    Tapflo UK now has a range of Mag Drive Pumps within our portfolio, including Tapflo’s own CTM Pump and a range from Gemme Cotti. Below we compare the various pumps available to us.

    Pumps in our Mag Drive Pump Range

      CTM Mag Drive Pump (Tapflo) Mag Drive Centrifugal Pump (Gemme Cotti) Mag Drive Regenerative Turbine Pump Mag Drive Rotary Vane Pump
    How the pump technology works The impeller pushes the liquid through by centrifugal force; as the liquid enters the pump, the fluid is pushed towards the pump housing, giving it a higher velocity. This then gets converted to pressure when pushed out the pump discharge. The impeller pushes the liquid through by centrifugal force; as the liquid enters the pump, the fluid is pushed towards the pump housing, giving it a higher velocity. This then gets converted to pressure when pushed out the pump discharge. This pump also uses centrifugal force to push the liquid, but because the impeller has many teeth on it, the pressurization of the liquid is enhanced by this impellers’ bucket design. As the impeller rotates, small vanes slide out of the rotor, trapping a set volume of liquid and compresses it because the chamber volume decreases. As it reaches the discharge point, the compressed fluid becomes pressurized and pushes out the pump discharge.

    Why choose this pump type over the others Highly customizable, with many different executions available.

    Can be offered “off the shelf” or tailored for bespoke applications.

    Ideal for high flow/low head applications.

    Compact design allows easy installation in tight spaces, making them ideal for OEM applications

    They are primarily used in applications where a high flow rate is required for a low discharge pressure, such as recirculation, fluid transfer etc

    Ideal for application such as moving a volume of liquid without a huge pressure loss in the pipework

    Cost-effective solution

    Typically used when a low to medium flow rate is required to be pushed through pipework which has a higher pressure drop than a Centrifugal Pump can handle

    Used in various applications such as transfer or recirculation through heat exchangers, control valves etc

    Cost-effective solution

    They are used when a high-pressure discharge is required at low flowrates

    This type of Mag Drive Pump is a more forgiving pump technology type and is typically used in high-pressure applications in industries such as the automotive, air conditioning and chemical industries to name a few.
