MagnaDrive Introduces ASD-SSD

MagnaDrive recently introduced the ASD-SSD  for belt-driven applications. The product was first introduced as a retrofit solution to accommodate federal regulations and market conditions found in complex industrial applications such as gas compressor air cooling fans, centrifugal process fans and centrifugal pumps. The MagnaDrive ASD-SSD delivers performance and efficiency improvements through rare earth magnets and

Magnetic Performance in the Municipal Industry

In the municipal industry, engineers regularly troubleshoot a variety of different pumps including centrifugal, water, sewage, and slurry. If this equipment fails, maintenance crews spend extra time, money, and resources to get the equipment back up and running. In the following municipal applications, these various pumps were enhanced with the addition of water-cooled ASDs provided

Magnetic Performance in the Metallurgical Industry

Coking, sintering, puddling, steel production, power, and rolling/plating are all processes utilized in the metallurgical industry. Here, engineers troubleshoot circulating fans, wastewater systems, conveyor belts, blowers, and a variety of different pumps to ensure production runs smoothly. When it doesn’t, these organizations reach out to suppliers that can offer equipment upgrades and energy efficient products.

Underground Upgrades

Components utilized in mining applications continuously cope with one of the harshest working environments on the planet. These are areas where pumps, conveyors, fans, motors and mills need to run as efficiently as possible. In order to succeed in mining, you need to provide a sustainable operation by reducing energy costs and downtime. The following

Troubleshooting HVAC Operations

Mechanical systems providing thermal comfort and air quality fall under the category of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning). These systems include central air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, boilers, rooftop units, and chillers. Like any other mechanical unit, HVAC components need to be maintained and/or replaced in order to keep the system running to its full

MagnaDrive Upgrades Three Power Generation Applications

MagnaDrive offered MGTL couplings for Minnesota Power’s air pre-heaters as well as a conveyor drive system in San Antonio. The company suggested E-Max couplings for a pump system in India. In all three cases, vibration was significantly reduced and the components benefitted from increased energy savings and value-added features. Learn more about each case study
