A high-quality, heat-resistant pump for wort or hot liquor transfer. This model is pre-wired with a six foot cord and a three-prong 110 V plug.
1/25 horsepower magnetic drive seal-less pump with a polysulfone head, rated for food grade use up to 250° F. It has a maximum flow rate of 6 gallons per minute, and a maximum head of 12.1 feet. The pump head has 1/2" MPT inlets and outlets. The motor housing is not drip-proof, so you should locate the pump in a dry location.
This pump is NOT self-priming, the pump head must be filled with liquid before it will pump properly. This means that you will have to position the pump below the level of the liquid for the input. Do not restrict flow into the pump, only on the output side.
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.
