Tech Tip: Gather Mag Drive Pumps Focus

Maximum pump service life for Gather Mag Drive Pumps requires following some basic important rules:

  • Intake: The maximum amount of fluid to be conveyed by the pump should flow into the pump freely and without obstructions.
  • The differential pressure the pump must overcome should be as high as necessary but as low as possible!

The pump should not be oversized in terms of capacity. It should be flexible to handle the required flow or volume. For this reason, Gather recommends using speed-variable drives.

Application in High-Temperature or Sterile Areas (SIP)

GATHER gear pumps can be cleaned in place, i. e. have CIP capability. Supplementing the unit with a steam bypass enables the pump to be sterilized in place (SIP capability). Thus, the pump pump is ideal for CIP or SIP applications.
