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.

I need pumps so i can get my recirculation in my mash and whirlpool in my flame out
Jamil Azi R on Jul 7, 2020
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.
Do we know of any problems with mounting this pump vertically?
George Brooks on Jun 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This pump works great when mounted vertically as long as the pump head is on the top. With the head on the bottom you may run into some slight issues, but it will still work alright for the most part.
What is a good way to throttle this pump? Is there an inline regulator, or can it be safely run at lower voltage with something like a variac?
Christopher Newport on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I only run mine at standard household current. There is no in-line regulator. To control flow, I use a standard ball valve on the output port. The ball valve works reliably for flows all the way to a trickle without clogs or airlocks. Hope this helps you.
How much power in Watts?
Christopher Newport on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Christopher, this pump is 65w.
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.
My pump does not pump at all, vertically or horizontally and only makes a minor humming noise. Is there someway to trouble shoot. Also should this pump be able to pump vertically 5 - 6 feet?
Jonathan Engman on Oct 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It will comfortably pump a few feet horizontal and vertical. Did you prime it first? Just elevate the input side - at least temporarily - to get it primed and then you should be fine - the object is to have some liquid in the pump so there's no air lock.
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 this pump be lubricated? Mine is seized and only barely turns by hand.
Chris Stackhouse on Oct 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Because a magnetic drive pump is an enclosed piece of equipment, lubrication oil or grease cannot be used for bearings. Therefore, pumped liquid is used for the lubrication of bearings as well as for cooling needs. Was the pump ran dry? If so running a magnetic drive pump dry will cause damage you have mentioned.
What is the O-Ring item number for this pump? I have this pump and used it, but it leaks between the head and body. I would assume theres supposed to be an o-ring, but I dont know.
michael laso on Feb 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael, the part number for the replacement gasket is PMP500G. It's currently not listed online but we will accept orders over the phone.
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.

For the price, this thing woks like a champ. Used many times with 5 and 10 gallon batches with no issues. Use it in conjunction with my wort chiller for recirculating the wort to help cool down to pitching temp quickly. On average can get to pitching temp in about 10 minutes.
