The Working Principle of Electromagnetic Pump


An electromagnetic pump is a device that moves liquid. By magnetic field interacting with and current in the conductive fluid, the fluid by the action of electromagnetic force create pressure gradient push liquid metal move. Practical mostly pump used for move liquid metal, also known as liquid metal electromagnetic pump.

The function of electromagnetic pump is to transfer liquid metal or other conductive liquid in a closed piping system. In this sense, the principle of electromagnetic pump is same with that of a rotating impeller providing the driving force, the difference is that the force generated in different ways. The driving force can be illustrated by left and right hand rule, when current pass through conductor generate an induced magnetic field, the magnetic field interacting with metal liquid generate a inductive current, the inductive current interact with magnetic field generate a electromagnetic thrust, the thrust is the driving force behind the movement of molten metal, not generated by mechanical components. Non-contact with the molten metal is the most important features of the electromagnetic pump.

Application of Electromagnetic Pump for Liquid Metal

Electromagnetic Pump for Liquid Metal wide used chemical, printing industry transporting toxic heavy metals, such as mercury, lead. Electromagnetic Molten Metal Pump also used for unclear power and nuclear fusion conveying liquid metal (sodium or potassium, sodium-potassium alloy, lithium-lead). Electromagnetic Liquid Metal Pumps have been used for conveying molten nonferrous metals in metallurgical casting production. Flow up to 13,000 m 3 / h, pressure up to 1.5 MPa and temperatures reach 1200 ° C.
