The development and survey results of the magnetohydrodynamics pump for liquid magnesium are presented in the paper. The pump flow, head-capacity characteristics and metal velocity distribution in its channel are analyzed. The paper considers the flowrate pressure characteristics for special induction pumps. The counter flow is investigated in 3D problem formulation using an SST model. Tables 1, Figs 5, Refs 10.
