You Have Questions

MagDrive is new, which means you have questions. We get it. In fact, we've already answered most of the biggest and hardest questions from industry experts. We've gathered the best of the best questions here to share our answers with you. 

Can the device achieve true zero fugitive emissions?
Yes, MagDrive valve drives can be installed on most existing and new valves, in most formats, to achieve true zero fugitive emission performance. The valve stem is hermetically sealed within a solid wall chamber, eliminating any path for product to reach the outside world. 
To what testing and qualifications has the device been subjected? What were the results?

MagDrive was tested and passed multiple API tests, including the API Standard 622 (FE packing test in test fixture) and API Standard 624 (FE test of 622 packing in valve). MagDrive completed 44,000 full cycles during these tests without failure or leaking. MagDrive will continue to certify all new products coming to market.

What is the practical maximum torque or thrust that can be delivered directly by the magnetic array?

MagDrive's patented designs can achieve more than 1000 ft-lb of torque and turn the largest of valves. 

How are the gear box internals protected from the fluid medium (e.g. – corrosion)?

Our magnetic arrays are fully encapsulated and produced with corrosion resistant materials to deliver many years of reliable operation. 

Where are the devices produced?

MagDrive is proudly Made in America. 

Is the technology patent protected?

Yes, after several years of research and development, MagDrive products are patent protected.
