Sun Wizards centrifuge pump

Sun, I read some where that you were using a chemical pump from a farm supply store. I did a search and couldn't find that post.
Would you mind letting us know which pump you are using?
Are you running it direct drive or belt drive.
I think this was a roller pump.
It seems like the oberdorfer pumps are 160 bucks and the roller pumps are close to $100. I am now using a oberdorfer direct drive and it sounds like it is
self destructing itself.

Thanks for all your time and input on these forums.

I use an Oberdorfer 991 on my CF and it works great, see the thread on these forums about it.

I use a Hypro roller pump as a transfer pump, it didn't work on my CF:

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/pr ... ring=6pa26

Grainger part number 6pa26

and should i go for Grainger 1/2hp or will a 1/3HP do it?

Also will i need a coupler kit for combining these two ?

Doesn't the FF60 need 2gpm? Then that pump isn't enough @1.3gpm.

No coupling kit needed for that one, you need a carbonator motor, and the metal insert that goes between the motor and pump.

So this pump http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/items/6PA27 says it produces 3gpm under 100psi and the ff60 needs 120gph so thats a bit over the amount we need. Can i still use the pump or should I keep shopping? maybe i can get a T and let off some of the pump flow before the centrifuge? advice WAY appreciated here.....links to off the shelf pump motor combos that WILL work also appreciated.......Thanks

THANKS ...........I um guess yes means yes you can use that pump and yes you can put a t /ballvalve before the centrifuge to relieve excess flow of 1gpm on the larger pump itended in my application to be for the ff60 or to allieviate the excess flow of .3-.4 at 90pepsi for the ff20? Or should i keeep shopping? LOTS of links not any that stand out like HEY I'm a pump perfect for you application and price range....... Sunwizard thanks for the help man....not the most computer literate....realy thanks
