Hands on Review: Anti-Gravity Transfer Pump

northern brewer anti gravity pump review

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.

Northern Brewer Anti-Gravity Transfer Pump

Some homebrew gear has a wide range of use, and some fills a very specific purpose. Those that fill a specific purpose typically become a critical piece in your process that you wonder how you managed before you had it. For me, that was the Anti-Gravity Transfer Pump from Northern Brewer. This pump is specifically intended for use in transferring beer or wort from vessel to vessel during your fermentation and/or kegging processes.

Closeup of Pump Head

The Anti-Gravity pump is a diaphragm pump, which is different than your typical wort pump. Wort pumps are usually an impeller design with a pump head inside with rotating blades that push little bits of fluid along from the inlet to the outlet as they spin. A diaphragm pump has a flexible membrane inside that oscillates back and forth like a trampoline. When the membrane is pushed in one direction, it compresses the fluid and forces it to the outlet. And when the membrane is pulled in the opposite direction, it creates a vacuum in the pump chamber which draws fluid in. A set of check balls ensures flow only goes in one direction.

Diaphragm pumps are self-priming, meaning they can handle sucking in some air and pushing it through the system until they get a steady flow of liquid. Impeller pumps are not self-priming, and thus you have to do the dance of turning them on & off and working to remove air bubbles from the lines. Because of the priming function of diaphragm pumps, they are well suited in transferring liquids from vessel to vessel. Self-priming also means you don’t have to worry about ensuring one vessel is higher than the other, or that the pump is located lower than the source vessel. However, diaphragm pumps do not handle output flow restriction very well, and typically aren’t rated for high temperatures, so they aren’t well suited for handling wort during mashing or boiling processes.

Mark II 25 Watt Wort Pump – on sale for $59.99 at William’s Brewing

Mark II 25 Watt Wort Pump

Mark II 25 Watt Wort Pump from William’s Brewing

More Info

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

The MKII Pump from Keg Land is a magnetic drive high temperature pump capable of pumping hot wort at temperatures of up to 248° F. It can pump up to 5 gallons per minute, making it perfect for 5 to 20 gallon systems. The maximum height it can pump is 11’ although gallons per minute will be reduced at higher pumping elevations.

The pump head and impeller are constructed of food grade Xarec plastic (very similar to Polysulphone). The magnetic drive acts as a clutch allowing the user to put back pressure on the pump to slow down flow. Like all magnetic drive wort pumps, it is not self priming – you must flood the pump head before turning on the pump. The pump has ½” BSP male fittings on the inlet and outlet, which are compatible with all our ½” female NPT fittings. The inlet is in the center. Besides Xarec plastic, other wetted interior materials are nitrile rubber and stainless steel.

The magnetic drive ensures no lubricated bearings are in contact with the liquid at all, so you can be sure there is no chance of any contamination of the liquid being pumped. The pump features a 67” power cord, and a mounting plate for permanent mounting. The pump is 7¾” in overall length, and 3¼” wide including the mounting plate. The polysulfone head can be mounted at any angle on the pump to fit your application (an optional stainless head, William’s item Q80, is also available). Shop around and compare, we think this is the best value currently available in a high temperature wort transfer pump.

Important Safety Notice: This pump, like all 110 volt items that run in potentially wet areas, should be plugged into a GFI protected outlet for safety.
