Micropump Inc. is the originator of magnetic drive gear pump technology. Micropump® offers complete fluid handling system components and assemblies, including pump, motor, and controller technologies. They make both positive displacement and dynamic pump products, using magnetic drives in multiple standard and custom designs or the I-Drive electromagnetic drive technology.
Specializing in OEM and industrial pump applications where precise fluid control is required, Micropump combines state-of-the-art manufacturing with unparalleled engineering expertise to meet its customers’ ever-changing fluid handling needs.
Micropump® utilizes a variety of positive displacement pump technologies in its wide range of precision, low-flow pumps, including external gear, micro annular gear, and multiple and single piston. Also available are high-performance centrifugal pumps in a very compact size. Micropump manufactures critical components that ensure the reliable performance and the long life needed for precise, low flow applications.

Micropump offers magnetic drives in standard and custom designs, or in the I-Drive electromagnetic drive. Micropump’s drive configurations are designed to meet the specific performance requirements of OEM and industrial applications.
Micropump® magnetic couplings consist of two magnets, a drive magnet that attaches to the motor shaft and a driven magnet that is completely sealed within the pumphead and is connected to the driving gear. The driven magnet is a wetted component and is totally encapsulated. The two magnets couple automatically such that the drive magnet turns the driven magnet and gears without physical contact.
The main advantages of the magnetically driven gear pump are lack of dynamic seals, smooth flow, self priming, a direct relationship between pump rotational speed and flow and small size.
