Introduced in 1994 the NC Series Chempump effectively addresses the critical issues of environmental protection, process management and cost control. The NC Series pump is the only canned motor pump to meet the two industry standard sealless pump specifications: ASME B73.3M Specification for Sealless Horizontal End Suction Centrifugal Pumps for Chemical Process and the Hydraulic Institute's Sealless Centrifugal Pumps Standard ANSI/HI-5.1-5.6.
Chempump's NC Series canned motor pumps have been designed totally from user input and represents the Best Available Current Technology (BACT) in sealless pumps. NC Series pumps feature the patented IntelliSenseTM diagnostic monitor as standard. This device provides both indication of bearing wear as well as real time monitoring of the rotating assembly position with outputs in either an analog format or through an RS485 serial data link to a Motor Control Center or Distributed Control System. This monitoring capability will aid you, your client or customer in preventative maintenance by enabling the responsible operator to predict wear patterns based upon actual system conditions and thereby increase Mean Time Between Pump Maintenance (MTBPM) and keep you producing. Through proper use of our monitor, pump failures should become an expense of the past.
The IntelliSenseTM diagnostic monitor offers Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT) and puts process operators in more control than ever before of monitoring the relationship between the pump and the system into which it is installed. With this package users have an opportunity to evaluate and specify this superior technology and its distinct advantages over any other type of sealless pump available in the world today.
The NC Series separates Chempump from any other competitor, either mag-drive, canned motor or conventionally sealed pumps. Chempump's NC Series canned motor pumps are loaded with features that will help you reduce installation, maintenance and space related costs and, at the same time, enable you to project continued savings throughout the life of the installation. These benefits and features include:
Leakproof Design - NC Series pumps are not just sealless. All sealless pumps reduce maintenance, parts inventory, product leakage and downtime associated with mechanical seals. NC Series offers all that and more. Secondary containment of the process fluid is standard. NC Series pumps provide a secondary level of containment where, in the unlikely event of a catastrophic failure, all pumped fluid will remain in your system. Secondary containment is especially important in high system pressure applications. The safety and housekeeping issues associated with highly volatile or expensive pumpage being contained in this manner are a real system design plus.
High Efficiency Motors - NC Series motors are designed and manufactured by Chempump specifically for use with canned motor pumps. This high efficiency design allows for the use of thicker primary containment adding increased margin for containment without loss of efficiency.
Spare Parts - Minimal spare parts inventory is required as NC Series pumps utilize fewer components than sealed and magnetically coupled pumps. NC Series pumps provide a level of interchangeability that encompasses all wearing parts across the entire model range. Bearings, thrust surfaces and shaft sleeve are the same for all pumps in the range from 5 to 50 HP. Inventory of spares is therefore, significantly reduced. Back pullout design is inherently standard and enables quick and easy replacement of all wearing parts without removing the pump casing from line.
Service - All Chempump products are manufactured in either, Warminster, PA or Belmont, WV Customers are supported by a fully staffed service department in each location. Application engineering and start-up assistance are also available at no additional charge.
Project Life Savings - Studies indicate that the use of Chempump canned motor pumps offer users long term savings when installed with diagnostic monitors that indicate when preventative maintenance is required.
