Medical System Applications for Our Pumps
Magnetic drive pumps play an important part in maintaining medical systems. Pumps like these are used in the synthesis of medicine and the creation of artificial limbs and appendages. Impeller pumps, such as March Pump’s centrifugal pumps, are essential components in ventricle assist devices in cardiac function.
Centrifugal mag drive pumps by March Pump have the durability and design for continuous application in medical systems. Our design provides effective and consistent pressure. Our pumps are your best option for operations requiring low flow and high head. Made in America and built to withstand challenging conditions, March centrifugal pumps improve your performance and safety.

Choosing a Medical Device Pump
There are many factors that need to be considered when choosing pumps for different medical system applications. Notably, you should take the following into consideration:
- Temperature requirements
- Maximum flow rate
- Concentration requirements
- Types of chemicals that are used
The good news is you do not have to make the decision as to which pumps are best for you on your own. Our professionals here at March Pumps are here to answer all questions and address any concerns you have, along with providing you with a professional recommendation that is ideal for your particular medical system application.
What Materials can Best Handle Medical Devices?
You need the most reliable material possible for medical devices as defects and faulty pumping processes are not an option. Consequently, we highly recommend polypropylene and/or Kynar materials. Polypropylene, in particular, is a durable thermoplastic that is reliable no matter the medical system application. Our recommended pumps — which include the TE-5.5C-MD 1&3 Ph Mag Drive Pump and the 320-CP-MD Magnetic Drive Pump — use polypropylene materials for the impeller, front housing, and rear housing, along with other reliable materials such as Viton and ceramic for O-Ring, shaft, and thrust washers.
What are Common Uses for Pumps in Medical Devices?
There are numerous medical system applications for centrifugal and magnetic drive medical pumps. They are used for many surgical purposes (i.e., open-heart surgery), cosmetic purposes, and medicinal purposes. Many physiological and pharmacological laboratories use chemical pumps as well. Specifically, here are some of the more common uses for our pumps here at March Pumps:
- Creation of artificial limbs and appendages
- Synthesis of medicine
- Ventricle assist devices (in cardiac function)
- Blood and/or erythrocyte suspension
- X-Ray cooling systems
- Blood warmers
- Ambulatory infusion pumps
- Chemical dispensers
- Ultrasonic cleaning
For example, a medical facility may need an IV pump machine. There are also various types of infusion pumps that may be necessary. In other cases, medical air pumps may be required. The application determines the different types of medical pumps that we recommend here at March Pumps.
