Our new BR series magnetic drive pumps are high temperature pumps capable of pumping hot wort at temperatures up to 120ºC (248ºF). The pump body is a powder coated steel, and unlike a chugger pump these pumps are sealed, giving you IP44 protection which is perfect for the wet surroundings of a brewery. They are outfitted with 1/2" male NPT fittings and 6' power cords with a standard North American 5-15 plug. The operation is silent, and the head and flow is shocking. We mean that in a good way! These pumps do not require any lubricants, thus eliminating the risk of liquid contamination. They also come with a steel mounting plate for permanent installation, and a 150cm (5') power cord. The pump head is serviceable, and can be mounted in any direction to suit your application. We feel that for your money, these robust durable pumps are absolutely the BEST value you can find.
These pumps are offered in 2 sizes and in 120V and 240V:
