Our Steelhead Pump is a heavy-duty pump made of FDA-approved materials to handle liquid up to 250°F. Powered by a 1/20 horsepower motor to produce top-of-the-line flow and pressure, this pump has a durable stainless steel head that resists breaking and cross-threading. Silicon o-ring and housing design prevents leaking. Large 2 7/8" impeller design, full 1/2" NPT inlet to prevent cavitation. Pre-wired with a four foot cord and a three prong 115V plug. Don't break your back or the bank, let the Steelhead do the hard work on brew day.
We recommend some high-temperature 1/2" tubing in either Thermoplastic or Silicone for all connections to the pump and equipment.
Like other pumps of this style, the Steelhead 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.
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.
