Q: I'm looking to do a home CIP setup, can this pump handle chemicals like caustic?
A: yes, the pump would be able to handle caustic applications as well
Q: can you regulate the rate of flow with this pump?
A: yes, using a 1/2" NPT ball valve on the outlet flow will allow you to control the amount of fluid moving through the pump.
Q: Can this pump reverse flow? i.e. Can I, with a switch, cause the pump to reverse flow?
A: The pump head can be removed to change orientation of the outlet flow, but the impeller and the motor used will only have a single direction flow that is possible
Q: What kind of oil do I use for this pump and where can I find it?
A: Adding oil 1 time per year To keep the impeller moving freely on the pin is fine. A star dead lubricaing oil for a hardware store, like 3 in 1 brand will be fine.
Q: My mash tun is a 1/2 fitting would it hurt the pump to change the inlet pump to a 1/2 with a fitting?
A: No, the 3/4" fitting can be reduced and is done fairly often by most brewers without issue
Q: Do you have de 230V Chugger Pump Stainless?
A: Yes this would be item #102-1004 on the site
Q: I am looking forward to get a pump that could move my hot liquid above 200 Farenheit?
A: This can handle liquids up to 250 degrees.
Q: Do you have the 230V 60 Hz motor for this pump?
A: At this time, we do not offer a motor for this pump. The manufacturer of this product does not offer just the motor as a replacement part. When speaking to a representative from Chugger Pump, they suggested to replace the entire pump if your motor is no longer functioning.
Q: Hi, I'm from Brazil, can you send to me here???
A: When checking out enter your shipping info for a shipping estimate. We do ship there.
Q: Is this a high flow pump that could be used for a whirlpool set up on a boil kettle?
A: Yes, it is designed to do 7 gallons a minute.
What is the size and weight of the pump, please?
A: It is roughly 5.9 pounds. 4 1/4 in. W and 7 3/8 in H.
Q: Why might someone elect for the center model vs. the in-line? What is the advantage?
A: It depends on your set up neither has an advantage over the other. The center has a 90 degree angle and the inline has a 180 degree.
Q: Can this pump glycol and other fluids besides wort and water?
A: This pump will pump other liquids. Viscosity and temperature will play a factor in how quickly it will pump the solution.
Q: I am looking to build a home made Sankey keg cleaner using the GW Kent keg cleaner/filler keg coupler. I need a pump with sufficient PSI to apply enough pressure inside the keg to be sure it gets cleaned thoroughly. Can you tell me the PSI rating on this pump. The folks at GW Kent suggest a pump that can produce 60-90 PSI in order for their keg coupler to work properly?
A: This pump has a flow rate of 7 gallons per minute, and with a specific gravity of 1 ( water ) you are looking at a PSI of 8.05 without plumbing. That being said, you may be able to get more PSI out of the pump with some restrictive plumbing, but 60-90 is unlikely.
Q: How long is the power cord for this pump?
A: The power cord is 4.5 feet long.
