    Default Pumps for Sugar Syrup

    I would like to hopefully build a unit that I can quickly fill bottles of sugar syrup. Right now, I do it manually and it is tough on my back and time.

    I would like to have like a 30-50 gallon uniit in the bakc of my truck with a pump and a motor so I can use a hose to quickly fill the feeding bottles.

    I just do not know what type of pump to buy. Doesnt need to pump honey but just sugar syrup.

    Any affordable recomendations?

    I used a pressure demand pump that I bought at a Ford RV agency.
    It did the job and it was low cost!

    Chef try Freshwatersystems.com they have pressure demand pumps. when you open the valve the pump comes on. You can get a 12 volt pump and hook it to your truck battery.

    I do not have any experience with this pump but have used fuel hose with nozzle for syrup off a centrifugal pump.

    The one from Northern does not work. syrup is to thick and would not prime. I also would like to know a low cost way I trasfer from the 2100 gal tote to the 275 gal tote on the back of the truck to pails to feed

    I tested the pump out more today. It will pump 1:1 but will not pump straight liquid sucrose. I can fill 4- 1 gallon feeders in 1 min 30 seconds.

    I might consider getting a unit from mann lake so I can push 2:1 and mix it in the tank.
