Dry Guard bearings feature a unique diamond-like coating, and are designed to significantly reduce the coefficient of friction, enabling longer periods of safe operation under dry run conditions. Dry running can inadvertently occur when a source tank empties or a valve is shut off up stream from the pump. The Dry Guard solution is available in pump models 3296 EZMAG, ICM and 3298 series. The 3296 EZMAG is an ANSI metal magnetic drive process pump with a simple seal-less design. The EZMAG is ideal for difficult liquids, such as corrosives, pollutants, ultra-pure liquids, toxics and hard to seal liquids. It has three patented features that maximize the product’s life cycle and make it easier to maintain. The ICM model is the ISO version of the 3296 EZMAG, which includes all of the same features for tough applications worldwide. The 3298 series pumps are lined magnetic-drive pumps designed to handle moderate to severe corrosives economically. The 3298 features a thick Tefzel lining and is available in frame mounted, close-coupled, in-line and self priming models.
