How To Find The Right Replacement Pump

The right pump can help you move all kinds of fluids from one place to another. This is useful in manufacturing, disaster recovery and even home heating and cooling systems. When you are looking for a new pump you will want to keep in mind what type you already have, what you want to move and how you want to move it.


Your Pump

If you already have a liquiflo mag drive gear pump, then it is a good idea to order another one of the same make and model. This will ensure that you have the right fit and function for your needs and put less strain on your motor and the new pump. If you are unable to get the same unit, or if you do not have one already, then it is a good idea to compare the specifications of the currently offered pumps to those that you need for the job at hand.

Your Fluid

The type of fluid you are trying to move has a lot to do with the type of pump you purchase. For instance, if the liquid is caustic, then you will want to make sure that your pump is made from materials which are resistant to the corrosion. Similarly, if your fluid is magnetic, then you will not want to use a mag drive to power your gears.

Your Movement

There are a couple of different ways that a motor can move the gears inside of a pump. One is through moving a magnet around the pump, pulling an outer gear, and another is through one or more drive shafts inserted into the gears themselves. You can compare specifications to determine which type of movement is the best for your needs and your equipment.

Finding the right replacement equipment, or a brand-new pump, can be easier than you think. Once you understand the unit specifications, you can compare them to new makes and models to find the best fit. The right pump can help you clean up after a disaster, manufacture new items and much more.
