I am looking to source the proper pump to clean my brite tank and fermenters of my nano brewery. What would be the most cost-effective pump that will work with a CIP spray ball?

Thanks for the help,
Cheers!!!

I use this, one for the brewhouse and one for cellar work, which operates as the backup on brewdays.

I have 110 gal plastic fermenters and a 150 gal SS pressure tank as a brite tank. I have the poly sulfide version of that pump for about $300 and it's not strong enough to really push the CIP spray ball effectively. I use a 1/2hp non sanitary pump for that and it works great.

I have a couple 7 bbl FV's in my nano system. I'd say that about 1/2 hp is what you want to get a good CIP. The March pumps can work, if you don't have a rotating sprayball, and if you have big enough hoses, and if you run the cycle long enough... I'd say get a bigger pump

Hi Erik,

We have pumps from 1/2 HP and up that will work great for you. They are sanitary industrial pumps designed precisely for this kind of application.

Please check out our website or drop me a line.
