If you're thinking about adding a pump to your brewery, you've come to the right place. The video below covers a lot of information regarding why you would want a pump and how to integrate it into your system but keep in mind that we've added several additional pumps to our product offering than those covered in the video.

We are frequently asked which pump would best suit a customer's needs. Although each case is a little unique, the following chart may help limit your options and make selection a little easier.

Pump Model Cost Performance (flow rate) Voltage Ease of Maintenance Operating Noise Physical Size Switch?
Mark II SS Inline $ XX 120 VAC easy (8 screws) QuietSmallNo
Topsflo TD5 $$ XX 90-250VAC * easy (8 screws) Dead Silent TinyInline Optional

* Motor is 24VDC but the included adapter will accept from 90-250VAC just like a laptop adapter.
+ Motors are fixed voltage but other model numbers are available with a fixed 240V input.

replacement part This new version of the center head pump features a New FDA Approved Run Dry Carbon Bearing Material (X-Dry Run Dry Protection) and an industry first TC ports direct from the factory.

We've been welding TC flanges on to brewing pumps for years now but finally a manufacturer in the homebrew space listened to the sophisticated bunch. The flanges are part of the head casting and machined in place. No welds. Why do you want a pump with 1.5" TC ports (2" actual flange diameter) instead of threads? All the cool kids are doing it. TC definitely stays cleaner longer and is easier to clean since there is nowhere for soil to hide. The downside? More expensive connections/valves.

See options below, to the right.

Center vs. Inline" In theory, the center inlet is capable of pumping hotter liquids at faster flow rates without losing prime (as compared with the INLINE versions of the pump) but the difference is barely noticeable. It's best to consider mounting locations and plumbing configuration when deciding which head to use, but if you can accommodate the center inlet, why not"

Some notes on using mag drive pumps:

These are not self priming pumps. The pump head must be flooded with liquid prior to turning the pump on. The easiest way to do this is to let liquid fill the inlet hose prior to connecting it to the pump. If the pump squeels or makes loud noises, shut it down and make sure the head is full of liquid.

If you wish to regulate the flow rate, it must be done on the output side of the pump (and we do recommend putting a valve on the outlet).

Orientation: We get a lot of questions regarding the best way to mount and connect hoses to these pumps. First, we recommend mounting the pumps so the outlet faces horizontally to the right. If this is not possible, the next best orientation is output facing up. The other two options will get air trapped in the pump head and cause priming issues.

Connections: We typically use 1/2" ID silicone tubing with a 1.5" TC x 5/8" hose barb adapter . By far the most important thing is to use high flow, non-restrictive components with the least number of elbows as possible on the input side.
