Industrial lubricants have a wide array of roles in many different industries. Virtually any kind of machinery that has moving parts requires lubricant to keep them moving smoothly, and different types of machinery require different lubricant compositions with diverse grades and viscosities. This can present a challenge when selecting lubricant pumps for lubricant transfer. Fortunately, March Pumps provides multiple mag-drive centrifugal pumps that excel as lubricant pumps or grease pumps. In addition to excelling at industrial-lubricant transfer, centrifugal pumps outperform air-operated double diaphragm pump (AODDs) on most metrics, including affordability, preemptive service requirements, flow rate, operating costs, maximum capacity, ease of maintenance, and ease of operation.
Industries Using Mag Drive Pumps for Lubricant Transfer
Multiple pumps can all handle the same sort of lubricant transfer with varying degrees of efficiency and safety, meaning that different industries may select different lubricant pumps even though they’re in the same sector. For some applications requiring sheer sensitivity, suction lift, shifts in flow rate, or shifts in viscosity, centrifugal mag-drive pumps obviously won’t serve as the most ideal solution. However, as long as they’re carefully managed, few substances in any field require that sort of excessive care, special positioning, or ability to handle variability. Businesses in the industrial lubricant field have increasingly come to understand that mag-drive centrifugal pumps offer significant cost savings in terms of purchasing, installing, operating, maintaining, servicing, and cleaning. They’re the efficient choice!
Medium-Pressure Uses for Lubricants and Grease
March Pump provides dozens of different pumps that one can apply to multiple types of end-use applications, including medium-pressure uses. Pumps that operate at medium pressures offer great versatility for industrial lubricant manufacturers and business users. Common applications include standard oil and synthetic oil transfer. Consider our list of pumps to compare pressure ratings and see which might best fit with your needed application.
High-Pressure Uses for Lubricants and Grease
In fields where industrial-lubricant application plays a vital part, high-pressure pumps fill an important role. Some of the industries that use high-pressure pumps include:
Crude petroleum production
Automotive manufacturing and servicing
Marine manufacturing and servicing
High-pressures are an absolute necessity when considering efficient grease pumps. Because grease is a high-viscosity material, lower pressures greatly slow the transfer process. In order to speed operations, pressure must be increased.
March Pump’s wide variety of centrifugal sealless magnetic-drive pumps means that it has multiple options to match with your end-use scenario. With flows from 1/2 gallons per minute to 200 gallons per minute and heads of up to 160 feet, we can provide you with options matching your flow needs. Further customization options include a variety of construction options, power selection (AC or DC), and pumps that will function while submerged. Contact us today to learn more!
