Description

The perfect pump for use after fermentation.


Why this is a Great Pump:

  • Self-Priming
  • Heat Tolerant materials to 212°F when used with Silicone tubing
  • Speed Control!

Gentle Diaphragm Design

Self Priming: This pump is capable of pumping gasses, meaning that pumping does not require priming! This makes transfers between carboys or kegs incredibly easy. Simply put both inlet and outlet hoses in a bucket of sanitizer and run the pump for a minute. You're then good to transfer your beer with your sanitized pump!

PreFilter This pump comes with a built in prefilter. This is something which is almost necessary on diaphragm pumps, as the diaphragm itself is very delicate, and can be ruined by small solids. The prefilter included on this pump will work to keep solids out of the pump, extending the working life of the unit.

Heat Tolerant: All materials used in the construction of the pump tolerate temperatures up to 212°F when used with heat tolerant tubing such as silicone.  Because the pump comes with vinyl tubing you would need to replace that tubing with silicone. 

Speed Control: Perhaps the most unique feature is a dial control to adjust flow from 0 to 3 gallons per minute. Use it to send your wort from the kettle to the fermenter, or even after fermentation to send beer through a plate filter (such as our FIL45).

Gentle on your Beer: A diaphragm pump works by moving beer through one pulsating diaphragm into the next. It is a design that is very gentle on the liquid being pumped.

When this pump was first introduced to us, we loved the idea, but had concerns that the speed control would compromise the longevity of the motor. We build much larger pumps (our ChunkyPumps for commercial wineries) and normally you need a $700 frequency drive to control motor speed. However, we kept in touch with the manufacturer and after three years in which he has not had any issues, and after our own testing, we are now sold this pumps performs as promised. The manufacturer does offer a 1 year warranty as well.

  • This pump comes with 1/2" barbed ports for easy connectivity.
  • Comes with 6' tubing on both sides.
  • 110 Volts, 0.5 Amp, 60 Hz.

For a small cider operation like ours, this pump fits in well for transferring between pails, our UV setup, and our fermentation tanks or jugs.

It says in the product description that the pump can handle liquid temps up to 212F with silcone tubing, but the instruction manual says that liquid temps shouldn't exceed 130F. Can this pump handle temps up to 212 with proper hosing?
Bill Rittenour on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as you replace the tubing that comes with the pump with tubing that can handle over 212 degrees.
What is the lift power of this pump (How many feet?). I plan to place the pump on the floor and the input will suck the wine from the barrel on the floor and the output will go to my stainless still tank at 6 to 7 feet high.
Milton Tolikas on Oct 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Milton - under ideal conditions, the max lift is approximately 15 ft. However, many factors come into play -- such as the type of liquid being moved, the temperature of the liquid, and the amount of solids in the liquid -- which determine the max lift of the pump on a case by case basis. This is why we do not list a max lift in the description. You should have no trouble in the set up you describe, although we would recommend doing a test run with water to see how the pump performs with your system.
How often should I change the filer if I am using it to move finished beer from two 6 gallon carboys to Corny kegs about once every other month?
martin smith on Apr 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The "filter" is a ring of SS mesh. Good for keeping grape seeds and skins out of the pump. The head disassembles and it can be washed clean. You should not have to replace the "pre-filter"unless there is physical damage.
There is a clip on the body of the pump, that secures the In and Out fittings. Slide it towards the back of the pump to release the fittings. The wire ring in the "filter" can be tricky to re-assemble, but patience is all it takes.
Would this pump be appropriate for pushing RO waste water through my plate chiller to cool wort? My plan would be to have the pump resting on top of a 50 gallon water storage tank about 30” above the tanks drain valve (supply water) and about 4’ away from the chiller. Essentially, the water would need to flow up 30”, horizontally 4’, then down and up another 30”. Want to make sure the pump is powerful enough for the task. I like the fact that it’s self priming (the pump would be sitting above the water level in the tank) and that it has the ability to regulate the flow as I never run my chiller water at full blast. Also, is there an on/off switch? Thanks.
Ken Yorke on Mar 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It will work over this distance, but the key is how fast you need the water to flow and if the waste water is free of any silt. I never runit faster then 2 gallons a minute and any silt can damage the diaphram.
Can you use this to push wine through a Ferrari gravity feed filter?
RANDALL P OKON on Nov 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure - the pump is not aggressive and it provides a slow steady flow for finished wine without aerating it.
I used my pump for the first time to move ten gallons of beer to the kegs and it foamed up bad I’m afraid that this batch will be oxidized. Is there a fix for the foaming problem?
Russell Chance on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Are you sure that was air making the foam. In a closed loop system where does the air come from? It is much more likely that the foam was CO2 being pulled out of solution due to the pump suction.
What is the head lift on this pump?

Pump works great. Adjustable speed is great especially when you get close to the sludge on bottom keeps from disturbing it. Easy to clean and works as advertised.

Wish we had bought a long time ago!!
Our wine club was a bit reluctant to try a pump- but we did!
This pump worked really well and saved us so much time and labor lifting the heavy car boys! Cleaned up easily and ready to go for the next racking! We love it !

Very useful pump for transferring wine
I make about 30 gal of wine and used the diaphragm pump to move it from primary to secondary fermenter. I usually use a larger diaphragm pump that operates using compressed air and has a much higher flow capacity. But this year I decided to try the SuperTransfer pump because it seemed this technology had advanced to the point where such a pump might simplify the job. I was pleased to find that was the case. I think the reported maximum flow rate is accurate and overall the transfer task was simplified. The filter did clog toward the end of transfer but it was easy to clean it and finish the job.
