ImageViking Pumps’ line of Universal Mag Drive series adds a seal-less option to the Universal Pumps series. This seal-less pump features a thrust-controlled design that allows short-term, run-dry capabilities and bi-directional pump operation for enhanced application flexibility, says the company. Available in cast iron, steel and stainless steel, these seal-less pumps eliminate seal leakage and environmental concerns, along with downtime due to seal replacement, says the company. They’re suited for hazardous, hard-to-seal liquids or for applications where very low maintenance is a requirement.
