1. Yes we tried the 25 and 65watt pumps and unfortunately these pumps do not develop suitable pressure and flow rate so I would agree with you. This is one of the reasons why we do not sell these pumps for this application and we are looking for a more suitable pump at the moment. If you dont mind me asking which pump model did you end up going with.I've seen you guys mention not to put a heat belt directly onto the Fermzilla body, is that the same for the heat wrap?
I'm sure with the heat resistant body though that direct heat application will be a non issue.
I have a bit more of a substantial system, but still a 1/2" CIP should chew through approx 45LPM. I had tried the 25w and 65w pumps but was unsatisfied with the results.
I now use a 53LPM constant pressure pump and couldn't be happier with the results. Just as an FYI.
2. This heat wrap is fine to put around the body of the FermZilla. The watt density of the heat wrap is low enough that this is not an issue. If you go with this heat belt the watt density is too high so we would not recommend putting it directly onto the FermZilla body. With that said if you have a heat belt then you can just wrap it around the stainless frame and this will also do a suitable job too (provided you have some insulation around the whole fermenter and belt.
