Second only to electric motors, centrifugal pumps are the most common machine used in the chemical process industries (CPI). Pumps are serving in every conceivable fluid application. They move all manner of fluids from wastewater to paper pulp, from ultra-clean and purest pharmaceutical liquids to crude oils laden with a great variety of contaminants. Hundreds of millions of these pumps are fitted with...

Magnetically driven (mag drive) centrifugal pumps have been in use since 1947 when the first magdrive pump was developed. Mag drives have always been the workhorse pump in applications with corrosive and often toxic fluid applications, and particularly over the last 20 years they’ve become more common in the chemical process industries (CPI). A typical mag-drive pump is comprised of a magnetically...

Gear units play a critical role in a diverse array of chemical process industries (CPI) facilities, to match the speed of a selected driver with the speed of the driven equipment. Today, they are used extensively in pumps, turbines and compressors, in material-handling units (such as conveyers and stackers), and in other equipment, including mixers, kneaders and extruders. This article discusses...
