Description 

 The MKII Pump from Keg King 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 10’ although gallons per minute will be reduced at higher pumping elevations.

  The pump head and impeller are constructed of food grade 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.

 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.

Thoroughly Impressed
Finally got my brew system reworked and added 2 pumps. The first one I ordered had bad threads on the output. One call to customer service and a new pump head was on the way. Once both pumps were hooked up I could not believe how well they worked and how quiet they are when running. Ran them on remote controlled sockets so brew day was a breeze. Used one as part of my glycol chiller cooled fermentation setup and it was just as in pressie in that application. Will recommend this pump to all my homebrewing.com friends.

Great lil' pump
I use this and a little ac pump on my 10 gal 3 vessel system, and it works beautifully. I bought the stainless head right away so I'd never have to worry about the plastic one. Super quite, perfect for everything home brew!

Great little pump!
This pump is great for the price.  Although I HIGHLY recommend you also purchase the stainless head for it.  I broke the outlet fitting because I tried to overtighten my ball valve.  My fault and not any sort of indication of the quality of the pump!  Great service, price and fast shipping!

Nice little pump
I purchased this and the ss head, The plastic head has a bit more flow 2 to 3% more than the ss head. The inlet and outlet are cleaner (smoother) with the plastic head = a small amount more flow, but it is a small amount. 
The pump is silent; well almost silent.
I have only started to use the pump, so only time will tell if it is a great deal but so far so good.

Great value
This is the 2nd one I purchased since I was so impressed with the fist one. Very quiet and a good value. You do need to order the SS pump head too. The plastic head seems a little weak and may break easily when installing fittings or valves.

Maybe silly question: does the pump have different speed/flow settings? Or a dial to control flow rate?
The pump only has one speed, but you can control the flow out of the pump by adding a ball valve such as our item L61.

Does the pump prime itself from the off position if the intake line is submerged?
No, the head and lines must be flooded before the pump will work.

Can this pump be mounted vertically (with the inlet pointing straight up)?
Yes, as long as the inlet is flooded with liquid before you turn it on.

Do you need special fittings because it's using BSP?
No, these have universal threads that work well with both 1/2" NPT and 1/2" British Standard thread fittings.
