Product Description

The High-Velocity series Taco 0013 Cartridge Circulator is designed for quiet, efficient operation in high head / high flow applications for Large Residential / Light Commercial Hydronic heating, Radiant heating, Chilled Water cooling, and Domestic freshwater systems. The exclusive ACB anti-condensate baffle with ambient airflow prevents the build-up of condensate on the motor windings when pumping chilled water. Its unique field-serviceable cartridge contains all moving parts. (SKU: RC013) Replacing the cartridge rebuilds the circulator. With no mechanical seal, the self-lubricating, maintenance-free design provides unmatched reliability. Compact and lightweight, with excellent performance characteristics, the 0013 is ideal for high-efficiency jobs where space is a premium.

BF – Bronze, Flanged Variations: J – Bronze Cartridge with Cast Iron Casing; These “J” pumps were designed for open & closed systems. These “J” pumps were designed for open & closed systems due to the amount of oxygen in the systems. The Bronze Cartridge increases the life of the pump and is able to handle the hard application better. This cartridge prevents the pump from deteriorating due to oxygen in the water system. Exclusive, Anti Condensate Baffle (ACB) protects motor windings on chilled water jobs. It can be replaced with the Taco 2400-20WB. Not for potable water use.

***Rubber gaskets included with pump***


The Taco 0013 is specifically designed for high head / high flow applications in Large Residential and Light Commercial systems. Ideal for high-pressure drop Boilers, Fan Coil Units, Heat Exchangers, larger Radiant systems, Heat Recovery, and Geothermal systems. The Stainless Steel 0013 should be used on open-loop systems. The unique replaceable cartridge contains all of the moving parts and allows for easy service instead of replacing the entire circulator. Universal flange to flange dimensions and orientation allows the 0013 to easily replace other models. Compact, low power consumption design makes it ideal for high-efficiency jobs.

North-wood burner
Perfect timing

In the fall of 2022, when I fired up the outdoor wood stove, the circulating pump started chirping. After a few minutes it quieted down and would only be heard chirping if the stove cooled off while running. (It was actually kind of helpful and let me know that I needed to go pay attention to it and fire it up again.) In the middle of April 2023, I was buying a second pump prepare to hook up my shop to hot water heat. My son-in-law manages 9 wood stoves where he works and recommended the 0013BF3-J as the perfect pump and the pump that they are changing over to. Since Alternative Heating and Supply had such a good price on the pumps, and I have bought from them in the past, I purchased two pumps. They arrived and within a week the original stove pump locked up. I guess I rolled the dice and won that time because the pump could have failed anytime throughout the winter and I would have been stuck with frozen lines. The new pump is working really well, although I rather miss the old chirping noise (not really!)
