Description

This item is currently out of stock but is available for pre-order. It is expected to be back in stock and ready to ship in early December.

When siphoning is impractical or too time consuming, the home winemaker needs a pump. We helped pioneer the use of diaphragm pumps as an economical, gentle method to move small volumes of wine.

This new take on an old favorite includes speed control. Now you can dial in the flow from 0 to 3 gallons per minute. Gentle, economical, flexible, and wow are all adjectives we would use to describe the performance.

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 that this pump performs as promised. The manufacturer offer a 1 year warranty.

A diaphragm pump works by moving wine through one pulsating diaphragm into the next. In this design, as opposed to a centrifugal pump which has a small head spinning at high speeds, the shear value is small meaning the wine is not as "beat up". A diaphragm pump is self-priming, meaning that it will "pump air" creating suction that will pull liquid out of your container and into the pump head. This makes the pump very easy to use for the home winemaker.

  • 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.

Includes a built-in pre filter to help prevent solid materials from entering the pump head and potentially damaging the diaphragms, which would prevent the pump from being able to move liquid. The clear plastic top of the pre filter unscrews for cleaning. Please note that some customers have had trouble unscrewing this cover to clean their filters. We suggest using a standard strap wrench if you are having difficulty with yours.

 

Prebook Item: Please note this item is not currently in stock, but is available for Pre-Order. We do require payment in full in order to reserve stock.

Ed M on Nov 2, 2019
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.
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: Hello Russel - Sorry for your loss. It seems best to have the pump ABOVE volumes of liquid being moved. Allowing the diaphragm to fully prime the pump and head without air-bubbles trapped during transfer.
What is the head lift on this pump?
Benjamin Johnson on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Benjamin - Being that this pump is 0-3 GPM max flow rate, the head lift should be somewhere around 6' max lift.

Good value pump
Got this pump primarily because a small winery we know uses it as their main pump and seems to do a fine job for them. Plenty of spare parts available. Hopefully it’s with me a long time. Used a few times already without complaints.

Does a great job, and easy on the wine
Bought this so I no longer have to find a partner to help me lift big barrels for racking wines. I've racked about 800 litres of wine since I got it in November and it works very well. I purchased a 25-foot hose for the output to rack wines from the garage to the basement after cold stabilization and it handled it with no problem. I love that I can adjust the volume. At the lower end of the speed control, I can rack the wine at the same or even slower speed than if I were doing it the old way (lifting barrels + siphon hose to rack wine to a lower container). So far, very pleased.
