The MAGNACHROME centrifugal pump is built to deliver superior fluid handling
performance in a variety of applications. It’s performance incorporates the power,
durability and ease of maintenance of the field proven MAGNUM I with a new high
strength material in critical component areas.
A chromium alloyed iron provides greater wear resistance and higher strength in the
casing, stuffing box, and impeller. This new alloy gives the casing a hardness of 600 HB, and the
impeller and stuffing box a hardness of 450 HB.
This process gives the critical components in the MAGNACHROME a more uniform structure; and a
30% carbide content versus hard iron with its soft graphite flakes. The components of the
MAGNACHROME have a wear resistance of more than 9 times that of cast iron and more than
6 times that of hard iron.

The Magnum Shear pump offers an economical and compact method of shearing polymers into the fluid
stream. When properly sheared, polymers can pass through the shaker screen without having to use larger
screen sizes that could cause the loss of excess drilling mud. Shearing is accomplished with the addition of our
proprietary stuffing box and shear impeller to the standard Magnum 1 pump. There are no modifications to
existing piping required and the Magnum Shear pump is constructed of the same materials as the original
Magnum 1 pump series. To improve the use of your solids control expenditures use the Magnum Shear pump
to add polymers to your solids system.
Common applications include:
Polymer Additives
Particle Degradation

When floor space is at a premium and performance is critical,
the VERTICAL MAGNUM provides the solution. The VERTICAL
includes virtually all of the features of the MAGNUM I.
In addition, the versatile and unique design of the VERTICAL
can be utilized in diverse applications.
In a wet pit environment, the VERTICAL requires no
bearings or sealing device below the waterline. Use of a
vortex impeller allows the passage of any solid that can
enter the suction inlet and minimizes particle degradation.
Concentric casing design minimizes shaft cyclical
deflection and allows excellent slurry handling.
Common applications include:
Mud pumping - offshore/onshore
Solids Control
Leveling of rig platform (ballast)
Typical configurations:
See pages 19-31 for pump performance curves

The compact and adaptable SANDMASTER centrifugal pump includes virtually all of the
features of the MAGNUM I. In addition, the SANDMASTER is more compact in design and
can be adapted for hydraulic motor drive. This added feature makes the SANDMASTER ideal
for use in applications such as oilfield frac trucks as well as blending and pump charging
service. The SANDMASTER’s variable speed hydraulic drive make this an excellent pump
for water well drilling applications.
When space is at a premium and prime mover options are limited, the SANDMASTER is the pump of choice.
Common applications include:
Cement Charge Pump
Blender Other Mobile uses

The VORTEX centrifugal pump offers users the proven performance of the MAGNUM I adapted with
a concentric vortex casing. The VORTEX also features identically sized suction and discharge flanges,
and a high performance vortex designed impeller.
The vortex impeller produces a smooth hydraulic whirlpool
of fluid around the impeller creating a vacuum which allows
fluid to circulate without passing through the impeller. This
smooth action increases fluid velocity and produces pressure
without turbulence, greatly reducing particle degradation.
Solids smaller than the discharge flow easily, without clogging.
The VORTEX eliminates the eye of the impeller reducing the
possibility of vapor lock; making it an excellent selection for
high suction lift applications where net positive suction
head is low.
The unique design of the VORTEX lowers radial loads,
decreases shaft deflection and increases bearing life.
The VORTEX is designed to pump continuously, even without fluid
in its case, and can reprime, under positive suction feed, without vapor locking.
Common applications include:
See pages 32-34 for pump performance curves
Pulp and paper

The MAGNUM XP is ideally suited for pumping high volumes of heavy slurries that
are abrasive, corrosive, or just plain tough to pump. The MAGNUM XP 14x12x22
and 12x10x23 can deliver flow rates from 3000 - 7500 gpm at 75 - 410 feet
of head at low speeds.
The compact overall dimensions of the MAGNUM XP make it an excellent choice for
high volume mobile and stationary applications where a small footprint is critical.
The MAGNUM XP is designed for continuous operation with minimal maintenance. The low stuffing
box pressure can increase seal life approximately 50%. The extra-heavy shaft is designed for minimum
deflection. This feature also extends seal life. A unique casing flow divider cuts the radial load in half,
doubling bearing life. The heavy duty bearings are permanently lubricated to minimize maintenance.
Common applications include:
Sand slurry
Fly ash
Bottom ash
Dredge tailings
Food processing
Paper pulp processing

The Magnum Multistage, the newest member of the Magnum family, was developed to
handle aggressive slurries containing up to 1/2˝ particle sizes in higher pressure applications.
These pumps may be installed either horizontally or vertically to allow for maximum
piping options. The Magnum Multistage (MMS) pumps are designed to operate in series
to deliver pressures up to 7,500 psi. This makes this pump a viable option as a riser boost
pump, mud prime mover, pipeline mining and saltwater injection.
The Magnum Multistage can be constructed from a wide range of materials to offer superior abrasion
and corrosion resistance. API D-1 and S-6 traceability can be offered for critical locations.
The Magnum Multistage is offered with a variety of sealing options. The seal requirement will depend
upon pumping suction and discharge pressures, ambient environment and corrosive/abrasive nature of
fluid pumped. Single, double and balanced seals are readily available to meet your demanding operating
conditions. Typical API flush plans may be used with all of these seal options.
The Magnum Multistage is designed to minimize and in some applications completely eliminate thrust
to the motor which greatly reduces motor expenditures. This feature also helps to extend shaft, shaft
bushing and mechanical seal life.
Common applications include:
Well Injection
Salt Water Disposal
Mud Booster Pump
Water Purification
Fly Ash
