How does MagDrive work?
Is MagDrive operated manually, or with an actuator?
Valves with MagDrive still have seals at the bonnet or valve body. Doesn't that present a possible leak source?
Can MagDrive achieve true zero emissions?
What sizes and pressures can MagDrive accommodate?
MagDrive is capable of being used in a wide range of sizes and pressures from 1/4" to 48" and beyond. MagDrive is currently available in 150-600 class valves.
Has MagDrive been tested? 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.
