A canned motor pump is a type of pump that uses a motor that is enclosed within the pump housing. This design allows for a more compact and efficient pump, as the motor and pump are combined into one unit.
Canned motor pumps are typically used in industrial and chemical applications where the fluid being pumped is highly corrosive or toxic. The enclosed design of the motor provides added protection against these harsh environments, ensuring a longer lifespan for the pump.
One of the key benefits of a canned motor pump is its ability to operate at high temperatures and pressures. The motor is cooled by the fluid being pumped, which means that there is no need for external cooling systems. This also allows for a smaller overall size of the pump, as there is no need for additional cooling equipment.
