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 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.

Good Quality Wort Pump
After one brew day, I am very happy with this pump. I added the stainless steel pump head and a ball valve flow control on the output side. It allowed me to recirculate the hot wort using silicone tubing and also cool it through my plate chiller into the fermenter. This setup worked great from max flow throttled all the way down to zero flow. Don't let the low cost fool you---this is a good quality pump. Recommended.

Great Pumps!
I purchased two of these pumps for the all grain system I am building. One pump to run with my RIMS (mashing) and the other to transfer to my boil kettle. I have the system almost ready and have ran a leak test an control panel test on the system and these pumps work great! I did not but the stainless steel heads for the pump because there were extra but if I ever have to replace a head, I will buy the SS head at that time. These pumps are super quite, work fantastic, and only draw 1/4 of an amp each. They are an great buy for the money in my opinion.

Impressed
I was impressed with how quiet and fast this pump was. It worked perfect with my 5 gallon all grain setup and will work great if I ever go to 10 gallons too. 

You have to be a little careful when threading steel fittings onto the plastic head, but unless you cross thread it there's nothing to worry about. If the head ever breaks, the steel replacement head looks nicer anyway.

Great Lil Pump!
Used in 1 batch so far and worked like a champ. It is so quiet compared to the chugger I used to have and half the price even with the stainless head upgrade. Just make sure you run on a GFCI and get the stainless head. Easy to take apart and clean. Great pump for a great price!

Great inexpensive pump!
I've been wanting to add a pump to my system for a while now, but couldn't pull the trigger on the other higher priced pumps.  When I saw this one come up, I ordered it immediately!  What a great little pump.  It's quiet, and really pushes out the wort!!  I did get the Stainless head, so I  can't speak to the plastic one, but the stainless one is awesome!  I am considering buying another one just to make my transfer easier.  I would recommend this pump to anyone in the market for one.

Is there any specification for the wetted components on this pump? I understand the Impeller and Head are both made of PSU what are the seals made from? and then metal shaft that spins the impeller?
Nitrile,stainless steel, and Xarec plastic. Xarec plastic is a high temperature plastic very similar to polysulphone that is very stable, with good chemical resistance.

Does the pump need to be disassembled and cleaned after use, or could it be circulated with starsan and left a closed system until next brew session?
Circulated and left closed is fine, no need to disassemble between uses.

Can the flow of this pump be slowed down by connecting it to a voltage regulator or speed controller? I'm using it to recirc. my mash and it empties the mash tun of liquid before it drains back through the grain bed.
This is usually done with a restricting valve on the outlet to throttle back flow. You cannot hurt the pump, because it is magnetic drive and this will not overheat the motor.

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.
