The only issue with a lower rpm motor is that it takes a bit longer to get the job done, but 80 rpm will work just fine. One nice benefit of a lower rpm motor is that it will generate much less...

Hmmm...it looks to be the genuine Polarware FB. Where did you buy it? As I mentioned previously, I have abused mine to the extreme with more than a few seriously stuck mashes and it shows no sign...

I ran a straight forward simple test yesterday using the vacuum gauge and the Little Giant 3-MD-MT-HC pump. The pump inlet/outlet and the kettle outlet were at very near the same level. ie, near...

Good choice, but be sure you precisely space and align the magnets. Match the spacing with the stir bar you plan to use. I'm currently running a 2-1/2" bar with the same magnets with excellent...

I never claimed that it was the pumps fault. That's all in your head. So what if I like my LG pump? Why do you give a rats ass what I think? I don't give a damn what you think, so I figure that...

My LG pump can generate 10 psi of suction and maybe more. I don't recall what the max has been as I try to avoid letting it get that high. I have a vacuum gauge on the suction side of my pump, so...

I agree that you are still having issues. The surface area of your pvc manifold is nowhere near that of a full width false bottom. That fact coupled with the very strong circular cross section of...

Well, I promise you that you are under-thinking this. We are talking about a stuck mash situation here. The pressure won't be relieved so long as the FB is plugged up. The 10 psi would be applied...

You've got it basically right Juan. There is no weight on a FB until a pressure differential is created below it with a pump or simply opening a drain port. Yes, it's a fundamental hydraulic...

Not true. You are confusing the total load with the force applied per square inch. Suction of as little as 1 psi applied to the entire surface area of the FB, 160 sq inches for example, would be...

The common mag drive pumps are not self priming and I think that's pretty much general knowledge, but once primed, they do indeed pull a suction. They would not be able to move even an ounce of...

Sorry, but you don't know what you are talking about. Ever seen that video of the rail tank car imploding? It was crushed by atmospheric pressure only.

I've been using a pair of these on my stir plates.

The max pump suction is far above zero. As a matter of fact, it is about equal to the max head the pump is capable of. My LG shutoff head is 16 ft. That translates to just shy of 7 psi of suction....

Unless it gets plugged up with debris that won't simply flush out. Been there. The point is that removing the LG pump head is much less of a hassle than with the competing pumps.

Yes, it's been tried. Someone started a thread on this and had a half-assed prototype built, but as is often the case, was never heard from again after a few posts. IIRC, he had wound the magnet...
