The MINEX magnetic coupling with containment shroud made of Hastelloy is the most common type for pump drives and other applications with liquids in the medium and higher performance range.
Subject to its high resistance to pressure and temperature it covers a wide field of applications. Inside the rotating magnetic field metallic containment shrouds generally cause losses of eddy current which are converted into heat and which may require cooling measures.
In applications with pumps the heat generated can basically be dissipated by the pumped medium. If higher pressure resistance than covered by standard KTR products is required, we provide customised special solutions.
