The March 809 BR pump has a bronze pump head. It will handle wort at boiling temperature, and take back pressure (flow restriction). This pump can be used for an all-grain system, or used to pump wort through a counterflow or brazed plate heat exchanger. The materials that come in contact with the beer are bronze (front housing), stainless steel (rear housing, shaft), silicone (o-ring), Ryton / Teflon (Impeller) Features and specifications:
- 1/2" NPT connections for both inlet and outlet
- Conduit box with wire leads (no plug)
- 6 ft cord and plug option
- 1/25 horsepower, continuous duty 1.2 Amp motor
- Flow rate: 6 gallons / min
- Max head: 12.1 feet
- Withstands liquids up to 250 F (121 C)
- Food Grade
- The head is made of bronze

The March 809 uses a magnetic-drive pump, so there is no chance of oil contaminating beer. Do not allow magnetic-drive pumps to run dry, because these pumps are not self-priming.
That means the pump will need to be mounted below the level of the liquid to be pumped. They will not work with a siphon. This will cause the pumps to run dry, which will destroy the units and void the warranty. If the flow needs to be reduced, a valve on the output side can be used to restrict the flow. Do not restrict the flow into the motor.
Always use a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) when using a pump to reduce the chances of electrocution. If you do not have a GFCI outlet, use the drop down menu below to add a GFCI outlet adapter.
The March Pump also requires two 1/2" NPT couplings. One is for the in connection, and one is for the out connection. See the options below.
