The 230V Chugger Stainless Steel center inlet Pump is a homebrew beer pump which is typically used to transfer hot and/or cold liquids between brewing vessels.
Please note the pumps do not come with plugs fitted. Wires are US colours: Live = Black (UK Brown), Neutral = White (UK Blue), Earth = Green (UK Green and Yellow Stripe)
BSP Fitting will fit the NPT Tapered threads on the inlet and outlet. Use a "3/4" to 1/2" BSP Reducing Socket" if wanting to reduce the 3/4" centre inlet down to 1/2" BSP.
Chugger pumps are made specificly by brewers for brewers. Comparable to the popular March pumps in virtually every way except Chugger pumps feature a 25% more powerful motor (1/20HP instead of 1/25hp) and of course Stainless steel heads. Another benefit is that the Chugger heads are interchangable with existing March brand pump motors.
The pump is hugely popular and widely adopted in the US and now available here as a European voltage version with CE certification. More information and full manual available here on the Chugger website
Centrifugal magnetic drive pumps are not self priming. DO NOT RUN DRY, the pump head must be full of liquid before switching on the pump.
