Default MArch Pump model AC-2CP-MD

Will this pump take wort temps? I can't tell from the website. If so there's a few on e-bay for 80-ish and free shipping.

Well, right there in the manual linked to that page it says the max liquid temperature is 190°F. Might be one of those deals that no big user ever asked March to qualify the pump above that temperature, or it might be an actual limit...

Cheers!

The PDF manual for the pump says it can handle 190 F temps... http://www.marchpump.com/site/files/966/109435/375037/601503/0125-0076-1000_R15.pdf

Thanks, I missed the link to the manual. I wound up picking up this one instead.

I just took a look at that link you posted and that was a special assembly pump we made for Lang Engineering. It sour MDX-3 with no front housing. They attach out partial pump assembly to their tank unit (that white box in the pics) I dont think it was designed for boiling temps....domestic hot water doesnt realy see hotter temps then like 140* F
Our standard MDX-3 is rated to 190*F and unfortunatly theres no parts to swap it out to get higher tmeps from it...

Well that sounds like a bummer, thanks for the help though. Can I use the motor and and swap out the pump parts? I'll run a few tests with water-only either way.

I just received it today and it is bit interesting. I removed what appeared to be a built-in thermo-couple and a check-valve integrated with something else that looked like a small RIMS tube. I plan on using this to recirculate wort during the mash so 190 should be fine. I realize I don't know how well the white box will hold up but I'll give it some tests with water before I brew with it.

Walter, can I order a standard MDX-3 front housing if I need too?

yep, just call any distributor and they can get it for you.....in actuality all you would need is the front housing and an O-ring...
