Description

This magnetic drive pump is a perfect pump for your brew system. Use it to move hot wort in an all-grain system and also to transfer wort from boil kettle to fermenter. The housing of the unit is made from tough, food grade polysulfone. The magnetic drive allows you to slow down the flow without damaging the pump. This pump is not self priming so do not run the pump dry. The pump head can be rotated in 60-degree increments, allowing for 6 different pump head orienations. An optional stainless head, PMP501, can also be purchased.

  • 110v/60hz

Is this powerful enough to whirlpool 5-6 gallons?
Chris Germain on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: How vigorous do you want the whirlpool? It is not a vortex but it works. I use it for 15 gallons. Wish it was stronger but it works
Has this pump in 220v?
Lucas Elias Montibeller on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we only stock the 110v version of this pump.
Does this pump require I port my kettle? Will it be too difficult to prime without the port?
Brad Stein on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Brad - It is highly recommend to have a bulkhead with shut-off valves on your kettle any time using a pump. The dangers of manually priming and or using a pump around boiling liquids are far too great.
Here is what I want to do, ideas?
Submerge an immersion chiller coil into a cooler of ice water.
Outlet on BK, goes to this pump, then to chiller, then back to BK to create whirlpool.
Is this pump strong enough?
If so, it would both chill and whirlpool with one pump and line!
Steve provoncha on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Steve, that pump should do just fine in that situation. Be sure you do a thorough cleaning and sanitizing of the inside of your immersion chiller first. Would recommend that you install high temp hoses on your chiller, most just come with standard hose since the normal use would be to run cold water through the inside.
Can I use this pump with oil instead of water or beer? Thank you!
Catherine Forest-Nault on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not see why not but remember this is not a self priming pump. Also, depending on the oil they will be thicker. It’s a very beefy pump so it will push the liquids. The head is a “o” ring and the magnetic drive is powerful as far as pumps go.

Works Good, nice size.
I used it to upgrade my Mash-n-Boil, really helps with temp control.

Then for sparging, I'm putting my hot sparge water into my to be used fermenator (Conical or SS bucket) and pumping up to the top with an added hose. The lid has a right angle barb to a simple plastic Siphon Spray Wort Aerator/Jet Fly Sparge. Might upgrade that part later, but have done 2 batches like this so far and works great.

Much more fun then going up and down the latter to sparge.

Great, quiet little pump!
This pump is amazing! I use it to recirculate mash since now I do full volume mashes and I was getting cold spots. Not anymore!! I boosted my efficiency 20%! I wasn’t expecting much flow but I had to slow it down quite a bit. And it’s super quiet!! I didn’t know it was on until wort started flowing! The Prius of pumps!
It would be nice if it came with the SS head as an upgrade option, not a separate item. Now I have a polysulphone head I don’t need. It’s not quite sturdy enough to support my ball valve without tipping forward, which I’m not sure if that is common for pumps as this is my first. If you mounted it this wouldn’t be a problem. Also an on/off switch would be clutch but no worries. Definitely worth the buy.

Great pump
This pump and head has made transfer of wart easy. Mounted on aluminum plate and added switch with incinerator light. The pump runs very quit so the incinerator light is a big help. Always us a GFI Beer and electricity only mix when watching TV.

Great pump! replace the head
This would get 5 stars if you didn't need to upgrade the head to the stainless steel model. The plastic head does not thread properly and broke off even with a little bit of torque to put fittings on it. The pump works great and is very quiet.

Very happy
Pump works great, only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I had to order the upgraded housing, based on other reviews the plastic one breaks easily and I didn't want to risk it. They need the option to just get it with the steel housing instead of swapping it out.

BSP vs NTS threads
I would rate it higher but the manufacturer insists on shipping it with BSP (British) threads, which won't seal properly when used with NTS (North American) fittings, used by the entire North American brewing industry. The fix is simple: Change out the head for one with NTS threads.
I contacted the Australian manufacturer and he was clear about not using NTS fittings, as they would leak and damage the threads, but the supplier insists it's OK – just put lots of tape on the threads.
Mickey Mouse solution.

Quiet and functional, but a bit weak
Using this for whirlpool & chilling with CFC. Seems more wet resistant than other pumps, but the flow is just barely adequate for me.
