Before choosing a centrifugal pump it is important to consider the end use for the pump. Brewmation assembles pumps using two different style pump heads. One style has an external seal (Topline head) and the other has an internal seal (Ampco head). For more information, visit out Pumps
(Topline C-100): Pump style used for wort, water, and cider transfers. Also used for tank CIP. Although the seal used is a high temperature type, transferring wort above 120F will require frequent seal cleaning (to avoid leaks) and accelerated seal wear and tear. High temperature water transfers and CIP do not cause seal issues (easily handles boiling water temperatures).
(Ampco CB+114): Pump style used for high and low temperature wort, water, and cider transfers. Also used for tank CIP. The internal seal pump is designed for high temperature wort pumping (Wort vorlauf, whirl pooling, and wort transfers through a heat exchanger) without excessive wear and tear on the seal.
