From HBF: Make sure the components you use are compatible and rated for your intended application.  Contact manufacturer with questions about suitability or a specific application.  Always read and follow manufacturer directions.

 

I use a similar pump (different manufacturer, features and specifications) for a recirculating draft line cleaning setup.  Note that fittings sizes are different on this pump vs the one I use in that build.  Adjust accordingly  Another possible homebrewing application would be to set this up for use a part of a recirculating wort chiller setup.

This model is nice because it’s USB powered. USB power blocks are easy to be had. That means no manual wiring and no guessing voltage. And, generally speaking, it’s not as expensive as some of the pre-wired options out there. This also has a speed control. That could potentially be useful for stir plate projects although I have no idea if it would offer the granularity needed for that sort of project.
