Last Call, Ends Tonight: Chugger X-Dry Series Pump via MoreBeer – $135.99, with Stacking Deals + Hands on Review

Chugger X-Dry Series Pump - Stainless Steel H332X

Chugger X-Dry Series Pump  Stainless Steel from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Introducing the X-Dry Series Chugger Pumps! These pumps offer the same great quality we’ve come to expect from Chugger, but now feature Run-Dry Protection. Although the Chugger still needs to be primed before each use, the X-Dry Series offers a new level of protection from damage due to cavitation.

The Chugger lineup of pumps represents a great value for an even better price. These pumps are workhorses in the brewery. Featuring a robust flow rate of 7 gpm, and a magnetic drive designed to handle back-pressure, these pumps are a great addition to any brewing setup! The Stainless Steel Chugger showcases their molded Stainless Steel Pump Head. This stainless pump is a steal for the price, and we’ve been more than happy with the quality! Use this to ease transfers between kettles, cool wort via a counterflow chiller, or recirculate icewater for quicker chilling!

The Chugger pump has 1/2″ mpt inlet and outlet, allowing easy configuration for any application! We recommend setting these pumps up with a Ball valve on the outflow side, this way you can throttle down the outgoing flow rate, allowing for more efficient sparges or cooling! The pump head can also be rotated 360° (in 90° intervals) allowing for even more customization!

Features:

  • Run Dry Carbon Bearing
  • Stainless Steel Pump Head
  • Food Grade up to 250° F
  • 1/2″ mpt inlet and outlet
  • High Flow rate of 7 gpm
  • Max Head 18.6 ft
  • 115v 55″ cord and plug attached
  • 50/60 Hz, 1.4 amp
  • 1/20 HP, 3500 RPM
  • No more issues with crossthreading plastic heads or snapping off fittings

What is the advantage of the TOPSFLO TD5 pump compared with other beer pumps on the market?

Firstly the TOPSFLO is a brushless DC centrifugal pump, Other pumps on the market are AC pumps. There is essentially a big difference .

Being a DC brushless motor, it takes advantage of the most advanced magnetic field technologies, characterized by :

long life,

low power consumption,

safe and efficient,

intelligent through the chip control,

can customize FG and 5V, PWM speed control,

all of which makes the DC brushless motor the latest trend in the development of beer pumps.

AC pumps have no chip, and cannot be intelligently controlled since there is no electronic component. The Topsflo Beer Pump has high voltage protection, high current protection, blocked protection and polarity protection which AC pumps do not have!

The TOPSFLO pump is 9cm long, While Competing pumps are around 20cm long

The TOPSFLO pump’s weight is 1.91bs (0.86kgs), while competing pumps are around 6lbs (2.7kgs)

The TOPSFLO pump noise level is 42.4db, other pumps are 56.7db

Passing all the standards to ensure it can be used in a long term beer brewing system, which include:

-Being manufactured from FDA certified 304 stainless steel

-The Stainless Head and bearings have passed a 72 hour salt spray test without any indication of a propensity to rust.

-Being tested at low and high temperatures ranging from -40 F to 248 F

-And for the pump to be able to endure 8.8 lbs (4kgs) of system pressure ( the Topsflo can endure 55 lbs or 25 kgs and still will not crack)

Passing all the standards to ensure it can be used in a long term beer brewing system, which include:

-The Stainless Head and bearings have passed a 72 hour salt spray test without any indication of a propensity to rust.

Graphite is FDA Approves and has a long life The O-ring is EPDM with WRAS and is NSF certified.

Hands on Review: Blichmann Engineering Riptide Homebrew Pump!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Hands on Review Blichmann Engineering Riptide Pump

In the world of hot wort pumps for homebrewing, there are a couple of big name players that have dominated the market for some time. There are also some new entries in this segment that offer just as good function, but at a much lower price. Blichmann came in with a completely different strategy. Rather than trying to do the same thing better, or the same thing for less money, they wanted to re-write expectations for what a homebrew pump should do. It’s like the first time you saw a BBQ grill that had lights to cook at night and a built-in bottle opener. You told yourself, “Wow, I didn’t know you could get one like that… I want one!”

As with anything Blichmann makes, the Riptide follows suit with top-notch quality and looks, and a price tag to remind you that you’re buying top of the line. In the case of this pump, they legitimately bring features that no other pump on the market has and at a price comparable to the current top of the line wort pumps (that don’t have these features). So it’s arguably reasonably priced.
