LEVITRONIX hygienic pump systems in Pharmaceutical Production

No Risk of Contamination

Levitronix® has developed a worldwide unique revolutionary centrifugal pump. Based on the principles of magnetic levitation, the pump’s impeller is suspended contact-free inside a sealed casing and is driven by the magnetic field of the motor. Moreover, no narrow gaps exist where organic materials or other particles could precipitate. The dead-zone-free pump design and the smooth, wetted plastic surfaces further aid in avoiding deposition in the pump.

No Risk of of Particle Generation

The impeller and casing are both fabricated from chemical resistant, high-purity fluorocarbon resins. Together with the rotor magnet they make up the pump head. By design the Levitronix® centrifugal pump that has no bearings to wear out or seals to break and therefore no potential source for particle generation. In addition fluid flow rate and pressure are precisely controlled by electronically regulating rotor speed and eliminates pulsations.

Gentle to Sensitive Media

Blood cell tests show that the average hemolysis (indirect measure of red blood cell damages) over time is significantly lower for the LEVITRONIX MagLev pump compared to the value of the Peristaltic Pumps. This means that over the given time with similar working parameters, the MagLev technology is much gentler on the fluid based on the low shear rate design enabled by the contact free magnetic levitation of the pump impeller in the pump housing.
