Penguin Chillers offers a line of fully submersible Glycol Pumps for use with our Glycol Chillers and Tubing. When setting up a Glycol Chiller, standard practice is to use one pump per fermenter or vessel that you wish to cool. In this setup each pump is plugged into its own glycol pump controller. Each controller independently monitors each fermenter or vessels temperature and turns the pump on/off accordingly to regulate the temperature. The controller on the glycol chilling unit will regulate the temperature in the glycol reservoir. This ensures there is always cold glycol on hand, as needed, to cool the fermenters. Our pumps work great for brewers that cycle their pumps on & off, or choose to run them longer during a cold crash.

Pump Size Options:

When testing our XL pump under what we consider to be a “normal” setup, we found that the XL pump provided roughly 2 times the flow rate when using 3/8″ inch tubing and 4 times the flow rate when using the 1/2″ inch tubing.

Sizing: Up to 2 BBL – Standard pump Up to 4 BBL – XL Pump used with 3/8″ tubing Up to 10 BBL – XL Pump used with 1/2″ tubing *Please note that the length of tubing used, any vertical height changes, and the number of fittings used, will all reduce the flow of your pump.

Our sizing recommendations are just suggestions. In the end, your pumps functionality will be determined by your set up and the pumps load. 

Pump Set-Up Information and use:

Standard Pump: Your pump is fully submersible and should be placed directly into the chillers reservoir. This pump should not be continuously running 24/7.

XL Pump: 2 Adapter Fittings are provided with your pump. Select proper fitting for your tubing size and place it on the “OUTLET” side of pump. Only 1 fitting needs to be used. DO NOT use a fitting on the “INLET” side of your pump. Your pump is fully submersible and should be placed directly into the chillers reservoir. This pump should NOT be continuously running 24/7.

We do not recommend using our pumps for applications requiring extended run periods without cycling. This includes draft systems, or brewing setups wanting to use a header line and solenoid valves. The occasional 8 straight hours of run time shouldn’t be an issue. However, running the pump in 8 hour blocks 7 days a week is going to significantly shorten the life span of the pump.

    I own a small startup brewery in the mountains of Colorado. I called to ask Penguin Chillers if they thought their glycol pump would work to pump glycol through a long-draw draft beer tap system to keep the beer lines cool. I mentioned there is a max height increase of 6′ and is overall a 50′ loop. They said “probably not” so I started my search for a pump that would work. I purchased a $100 pump from Amazon rated for sub-freezing temperatures and designed to power garden fountains and waterfalls and is about 3x bigger than Penguin Chillers’ pumps. That big pump did absolutely nothing and was unable to pump the glycol through even half the system. I decided to test a Penguin Chillers pump since I use them to chill my fermenters and lo and behold it pumped the glycol through like it was nothing. The pumps are not only powerful, but tiny.

    You do need to keep an eye on them because from time to time they will stop pumping and start “choking” but if you leave them alone (or if you need it to work right then, take them out of the water to let it breathe for a split second) they start working again.

      Thanks for the feedback Nick, it’ll help me provide better customer service and support to our future customers. I believe in “under promising and over delivering” the last thing I’d want to tell any of our customer is that one of our products will work for sure if I have any doubts. I’m glad to hear that it’s working for your application.

    That pump is a beast! Like in the previous comment, I have it ( standard size, not the XL) running glycol through my beer tower on a 50′ loop with an 8-9′ height increase on an 1/2″ line and it does the job remarkably. I had my doubts when I got the package. The thing is so small, there was no way its could manage that task. Plugged it in and the glycol started circulating immediately.
    It’s on a wifi connected outlet to program it for my normal hours of use and to prevent the pump from running 24/7.

    I have a much bigger pump trying to get glycol to my fermenter on a 20′ line with 7′ rise and it barely pushes it through. Might just get another one to replace it.
