Pumped outlet Pipe

Unread postby gandalf the brew » Sun Oct 29, 2017 2:30 pm

Just a little gadget to be able to pump out the wort instead of using the tap on the BM 10.
I saw a similar gadget in another post that gave me the idea.
The equal T on the outlet pipe is filed out to slip down the pipe.
An 11mm silicon O ring is fitted on the bottom reducer to make a seal with the pump outlet.

Very nice.

When does it go in? Before hops? Seems like getting it seated properly with hops and trub might be an issue. Do you use it with the hose inside for whirlpooling?

Have you thought about another sidearm to mount a hop catcher of some sort on the pump inlet?

I whirlpool, then cool, then fit the pipe. Because of it's set size it is easy to plug it in even when you can't see through the wort, just drop it in, swivel until it comes up against the pump outlet, lift it just a tad over the lip and it drops straight into the hole. I use a hop spider so I have very little residue. I haven't tried it for whirlpooling, because it would need removing to cool then refitted again to pump out the wort.

My next project is a filter that plugs into the pump inlet, but this would need to be fitted before the malt pipe is inserted, and there is very little space to work with. It needs to be low and curved so it fits under the heating element.

It is, but I would not pay over 100€ for it when I made it for less than 10. And as usual no BM10 version as yet.

... didn‘t want to question your ‚handmade‘ skills ...just wanted to mention it as not everyone might know it.

Sorry if it came across as critics or so

Yup. And it didn't come with ANOTHER poxy tap.

The only risk with these devices (& the LPT ) is manual mode. There is always risk of turning the elements on accidentally.

Gandalf:

I like this concept. Anyway you could provide the pipe diameters, parts, and instructions? Sorry to be lazy yank, but more wanting the info so I don't screw it up.

Now that you have me thinking, why not just add another tee to it further down and add small piece that fits into inlet spot. Would cut the piece going into the pump just a tad bit lower than the coils. Like a pump dip tube?

Not sure I am with you, do you mean another upright tee'ed off the centre that would be a full height filter, that fits into the inlet?

Gandalf

How are you sealing off the center post from pump flow or is it live?

I have cut tees length-wise in the past, so they are semi circular - works well but harder to solder on.
