    Its 60hz according to the picture (didnt know there was 50hz 120v in use). They are available in 240v and 380v as well according to some sellers. The same pump without the cart is $331 shipped from other sellers which if it works as advertised is great. ..I bought the one year warranty through ebay for $15 so like I said well see how it goes. the company already proactively sent me an email with pictures on how to wire it up.

    I just purchased one from ebay. I cannot find any reviews on it and yes its not UL listed as the CPE rep pointed out in thier pump section but many industrial things arent including many of the machines I install and service for a living and its never been a problem. Money is tight as we approach opening and at less than half of anything else comparable its something im willing to try out even if it doesnt hold up well. its got to be better than some of the utility pumps Ive seen other nanos using for this with possible oil leaks and such.
    I guess I will find out how well it works out first hand. There are replacement seals including the higher temp ones avalable and I figured this would work well for just Cip if nothing else.

    flow rate is supposedly like 48gpm...

I guess I may just have to hook a garden hose to a cut up keg and monitor the cascade on the side walls as well as the flow rate. I'll comment when I have done some testing. Also, has anyone purchased any pumps from Alibaba? I've seen some really good pricing on there and curious if anyone has any feedback.
    What pump are you looking at now?

    A size in terms of power or pumping rate in gallons per.minute or hour would be great....

    I also have this same question. I've built a PLC/HMI controller that will automate 1" angle seat valves, heating element for Caustic or Acid #6, and two pumps but don't know what size pumps to get. I don't want to over power and risk lines bursting, coming off fittings or overfilling keg due to the exhaust not keeping up (out side at the bottom of the keg). I've specked a 1" tube that feeds the pump then from there it hits a 1" manifold that will Tee into two Sanke couplers then back into the chemical holding tank. Any advise?

    DIY keg washer pump sizing???

    What would be a good pump size for a dual DIY keg washer. Would a Chugger nano be large enough to do the job. we are currently using our cart pump, but it seems like that might be overkill.
