Reactor Pump died.

Just for what it's worth, my reactor pump was a $19.99 special Clearwater Centrifugal pump (1/2 hp). It died after 615 gallons of Bio made. Found a 1 hp pump for $62.99 and will hopefully get more life out of it. Some of the oil that I got was rather thick, so I think it was just too much of a load on the pump. I am thinking that I need to tell that supplier that I just can't use his oil ...

Awesome! What kind of pump was it you found to replace the burn out?

Another Clearwater. This one is 1 hp instead of 1/2 hp. Would think the extra grunt would keep it from being overloaded like the other one. Input and discharge ports are the same size as the old one, so it should plug right in.

I have heard that the Northern Tool brand pump lasts longer than the Harbor Freight.

I didnt even know that Harbor Frieght dealt in pumps, good to know if I need a back-up! LOL! Northern tool, I like their products in other areas, but I wish their pricing wasnt so high on some products.. I will have to check out the pricing they have for theirs!

Crappy pumps are one reason why I went to mechanical mixing, and I use an air powered diaphragm pump to move the bio around.......
