Description

Item Description

Submersible glycol pump for use with our glycol chillers.

Glycol Pump – 12v DC  /  19 watts  /  3.5gpm max  /  16′ Head height max

It is typical to use one pump per fermenter or vessel you wish to cool.  In this type of setup each pump would need a controller to turn the pump on/off.  The controller on the Glycol Chiller will regulate the temperature of the glycol bath (for example 28F), the controllers on the pumps would regulate the temperature of each vessel independently by regulating the flow of 28F glycol to that vessel.

    I own a small startup brewery in the mountains of Colorado. I called to ask Penguin Chillers if they thought their glycol pump would work to pump glycol through a long-draw draft beer tap system to keep the beer lines cool. I mentioned there is a max height increase of 6′ and is overall a 50′ loop. They said “probably not” so I started my search for a pump that would work. I purchased a $100 pump from Amazon rated for sub-freezing temperatures and designed to power garden fountains and waterfalls and is about 3x bigger than Penguin Chillers’ pumps. That big pump did absolutely nothing and was unable to pump the glycol through even half the system. I decided to test a Penguin Chillers pump since I use them to chill my fermenters and lo and behold it pumped the glycol through like it was nothing. The pumps are not only powerful, but tiny.

    You do need to keep an eye on them because from time to time they will stop pumping and start “choking” but if you leave them alone (or if you need it to work right then, take them out of the water to let it breathe for a split second) they start working again.

      Thanks for the feedback Nick, it’ll help me provide better customer service and support to our future customers. I believe in “under promising and over delivering” the last thing I’d want to tell any of our customer is that one of our products will work for sure if I have any doubts. I’m glad to hear that it’s working for your application.
