Canned motor pumps are especially suited for submerged service due to unique technical advantages, including:
- Only minor changes are required to modify canned pump for submerged service. Typically, the only modifications required are to seal the motor lead wires and construct the external components of a material compatible with the process fluid.
- A single bearing system. Only two bearings required to support the rotating assembly and these are located inside the pump at the bottom of the sump or vessel, eliminating long shaft alignments and bearing support systems.
- Complete product containment, requiring no dynamic seals. All connections are welded to the cover plate and the process fluid is therefore confined to the discharge pipe connection exiting the cover plate.
