The MKII Pump from KegLand is a magnetic drive high temperature pump capable of pumping hot wort at temperatures of up to 248° F. It can pump up to 2 gallons per minute, making it ideal for adding a pump to 5 gallon mashing system.
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" hose barb inlets and outlets for attaching silicone or thermoplastic ½" interior diameter tubing. 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 60” power cord, and a mounting plate for permanent mounting. The pump is 5” in overall length, and 3” wide including the mounting plate. The polysulfone head can be mounted at any angle on the pump to fit your application.
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.
