Manual rotary pump

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow distillers,

Anyone use a manual pump to empty barrels? If yes, what type of pump do you use?

We are looking for a more simple (and cheaper) way to empty barrels for bottling than the barrel gun with co2 injection.

 

Thank you

princess auto sells a stainless steel barrel pump for a hundred bucks , take the handle off and put a brush less rechargeable drill(makes it explosion proof )  on it and it will pump anything from spirit to mash . grunfos sells a electric circulating stainless pump for 500 bucks but its not explosion proof and wont pump grain in mash , but pumps wort with no problem .

we use a Milwaukee 18 volt rechargeable (cordless ) drill in distillery for all kinds of stuff from drilling holes to turning the pump i was talking about . as long as the drill is brush less it is considered   safe to use in a explosion area . im sure dewalt makes brushless tools to .

is there a reason you aren't just dumping your barrels?

you could siphon if they are high enough. 

another pump option is a small diaphragm pump that doesn't take much air like a flojet G70C ATEX Kalrez® Air Operated Diaphragm Pump
