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.

quiet, sufficient, yet slightly lacking
The pump is nicely constructed. However it claims to out pump my old chugger that recently died. It is a little slower, but much smaller and quieter in comparison. So its a trade off. I like the concealed fan and electrical components, but it does not pump as fast as my old.  for example, my old pump could drain a 10 gal kettle being pushed through my 50' CFC in 10min, this pump does the same job in about 15min. not enough to return the product, but it does add a little time to the brewday.

Great pump
Brewing in my kitchen while in Japan. This pumped worked great at moving the wort from my kettle through my chiller tot the fermentation bucket without issue. I mention brewing in the kitchen because the pump is amazingly quiet. My wife was 15 feet away and could not hear it.

This pump is a good buy
Ordered this pump, and every thing needed to operate it (stnls head, ball valve, tubes) for about $150, all in. I mounted to a 1/2" sheet of plastic (from our local hockey arena). This pump is quiet and moves liquid FAST through 1/2" tubing. I throttle it back with the ball valve. So far, I've only run Starsan but I have high expectations for moving wort. Still trying to figure out best way to prime it. Right now, I use a turkey baster to flood the head and tubes. The tubes are four foot sections and I hope they are long enough in execution. My hope is that this pump will outperform gravity on brew day. If not, then I've wasted $150.

Great little pump
Fittings will work fine with standard US pipe thread.(NPT)
The trick is to stretch the brass fitting going onto the pump first.  Just install your fitting onto a 1/2" NPT nipple a few times and then it goes right on.  Use teflon tape.  I am using the default plastic head that came with the pump.  Great transfer rate for such a small unit.  Super quiet.  Great Price.

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.
