Pumps

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 page.

External Seal 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).

Internal Seal Pumps

(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.

Recommended Sizing

Wort Transfer:
1/2 HP - 3/4 HP (up to 7 BBL)
1 HP - 1.5 HP (up to 20 BBL)

Note: For transferring through a plate heat exchanger on systems larger than 2bbl, 3500RPM motors are required. These are only available when a VSD is connected or on 1HP pumps.

CIP:
1/2HP to 3/4HP up to 7bbl (cart pumps with a variable speed drive)
1HP up to 7bbl (stand alone single speed pump)
1HP - 1.5HP up to 30bbl tanks (cart pumps with a variable speed drive)

Note: Stand alone pumps without a variable speed drive are not recommended for pumps above 1HP
