This Chugger Pump features a durable hi-temp polysulfone head, capable of withstanding liquid temperatures up to 250°F. The head is easy to take apart for thorough cleaning, and can be mounted to the pump in 4 different positions, allowing for optimal pump placement. The large 2 7/8” impeller is magnetically coupled, completely isolating your wort from the motor and eliminating the chance of leaky seals. The head features ½” male NPT inlet and outlet ports which offer easy compatibility with a variety of fittings, and allows for optimal flow without clogging. The Chugger Plastic offers solid construction and premium power in an affordable and compact pump.

Like other pumps of this style, the Chugger is not self-priming. For best results, position the pump below the level of your kettle and allow the pump head to fill with liquid before turning on the pump.
We recommend some high-temperature 1/2" tubing in either Thermoplastic or Silicone for all connections to the pump and equipment.
Adding a 1/2" ball-valve
to the output of the pump allows you to precisely control the flow of liquid from vessel to vessel or through a plate chiller. You can even stop the flow entirely using the valve, without turning off the pump and losing the prime!
A set of Quick Disconnects
on your equipment and tubing make the brew day even easier.
