MagForce delivers high performance, cost savings, simple start-up

November 22, 2021  By Ground Water Canada

Franklin Electric Company Inc. has introduced a solution for pumping power at maximum efficiency: MagForce High Efficiency Systems.

Powered by permanent magnet motor technology, the systems are engineered to not only provide high performance and simple startup, but also incredible long-term cost savings. In fact, in field trial testing, the systems delivered electrical cost savings as a result of a 90 per cent efficiency rating in the motor. For owners and operators, this can translate to an investment payback of less than two years in most long- or continuous-run applications.

A MagForce permanent magnet motor powers each system and operates at a fraction of the energy consumption when compared to traditional induction systems. The system is now paired with a Franklin Electric engineered drive for intuitive startup and reliable protection for submersible pumping applications. Users can choose from either the SubDrive Connect Plus for motors up to 30 horsepower or Cerus X-Drive for higher horsepower applications.


“Groundbreaking efficiency is really just the start of the benefits this system offers to users,” Chris Schantz, global director, product management, Vertical Pumping Systems, said. “This technology makes the motor lighter and easier to handle than standard induction motors and, like all submersible pumping solutions, minimizes its above ground footprint when compared to other high-efficiency systems. Plus, since all components come from Franklin Electric, the system is engineered for the ultimate in operational compatibility and optimized operation.”

MagForce High Efficiency Systems are available with three motor size choices to cover pump horsepower ranging from 7.5 to 60. This streamlined selection provides simplified inventory management.
