Levitronix Bearingless Pump System BPS-2000 High Pressure

REVOLUTIONARY MAGNETICALLY LEVITATED CENTRIFUGAL PUMP

The BPS-2000 pump system is a revolutionary centrifugal pump that has no bearings to wear out or seals to break down and fail. Based on the principles of magnetic levitation, the pump’s impeller is suspended, contact-free, inside a sealed casing and is driven by the magnetic field of the motor.

The impeller and casing are both fabricated from chemical-resistant high purity fluorocarbon resins. Together with the rotor magnet they make up the pump head.

Fluid flow rate and pressure are precisely controlled by electronically regulating the impeller speed without pulsation. Closed loop flow or pressure control is easy configurable with the usage of an additional pressure or flow sensor. Various system configurations are possible as explained in the following sections.

Specifications
