Hands on Review: Mark II Homebrew Pump w/Stainless Head + Our Discount Codes Works Again

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.

Mark II Pump with Steel Head

Let’s face it, pumps aren’t the most exciting piece of homebrew equipment you own. With the exception of the RipTide pump, they don’t have “features” you can impress your friends with. There are a few basic requirements, and once you get those met, you’re just looking for the lowest price. For me, the basic requirements are: 1) Magnetic drive, 2) Ideally a stainless steel head, 3) Temperature & splash protection, and lastly 4) Maximum head.

The MkII’s Magnetic Impeller

Several vendors offer what’s called a “Mark II Pump”. So you need to dig deeper than just the name when comparing pump offerings from different shops. One requirement, which is pretty much standard across beer brewing pumps, is what’s called a magnetic drive. Magnetic drive means you don’t have to worry about grease from shaft bearings getting into your wort. The other advantage is that you can close a valve- partially or completely- on the output side of your pump to reduce flow, and it causes no stress to your pump. Magnetic drive is pretty much standard in beer brewing pumps, but I bring it up because shopping on Amazon or eBay you might get drawn into something that isn’t.

About Pump Features and Specs – What does Pump Head Mean?

Pump heads come in either stainless steel or some kind of plastic/resin. Some resins have a better temperature durability, so after many hours of operation they are less likely to break down and lose pressure/flow capability. Stainless steel doesn’t have this issue, but it also has more durable threads. Most wort pumps come with 1/2″ Male NPT at inlet and outlet so you can screw on hose attachments or ball valves. I’ve had bad luck with stripping threads off a polysulphone pump head even with the most careful attention paid to not cross-threading it.

The next key differentiator between pumps is temperature capability. Some are designed to handle cooler liquids and are maybe only rated to something like 80F or 180F. This simply isn’t good enough for brewing, you want something that can handle boiling wort temperatures (212F or hotter).

  • This is a high temperature (up to 105’C) Food grade mini water pump
  • The shaft is coated with a layer of ZrO2 (zirconium oxide ) for higher temperature handling and better tolerance for acid and alkaline
  • Made in China

This is a high temperature (up to 105’C) Food grade mini water pump. The shaft is coated with a layer of ZrO2 (zirconium oxide ) for higher temperature handling and better tolerance for acid and alkaline. It’s built by a brushless motor providing smooth and quiet operation than a non-brushless water pump. Plus, it will not generate ‘electric spark’ like what a brush type does so it’s more safe. It can be used to pump oil as well (no gasoline*) Specification: Input: DC 5~6V Output: 1.0L/min or 0.264 gallon/min Range: 1M (3ft horizon) @6V Current: [email protected] Intake: 0.35in Dia. Outlet: 0.27in Dia. Life span: 6V @ 1600rpm~4200rpm Noise:20dB Working Temp: 212’F (non-submersed) : less than 122’F(submersed) Size(L*W*D): 1.3″ X 0.9″ X 1.4″ Weight (net): 2.0oz Warning: Do not let it run dry without water flow!.


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.

 

If you’re looking for a small pump to include in your system build or project.  In my opinion this is not a direct one to one replacement for something like a Chugger Pump or a March Pump the flow rate isn’t there and the inlet and outlets look small. I do see some possible homebrewing applications including… Transferring wort, mash or sparge water within your system, recirculating mash to help keep a consistent temperature and recirculating wort for chilling.  Note that this is 6V DC.  You need to wire this up to a compatible power supply.

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
