sorry guys for not replying lately....was on vacation last week...and the past month has been nothing but crazyness with one of our OEM's...they placed an order for close to 1000units of our 5.5 series pumps and want them on a crazy time frame so things have been off the hook here tyring to get things out the door. I'm sorry if i have not gotten back to anyone. Its usually easier to PM (the email notifies me) or email me direct @ wwojcik@ marchpump.com

I've got a quick question.I've got an AC-3CP-MD and it's rated to only 190F.Would it be safe in an HLT/Herms up to 205F?

And BTW thanks for the info.

mmmmm....well some people have used them at near boiling temps...it all depends on how long you expose it at those temps....few minutes "shouldnt" hurt things...
It would be easier for you to just change that pump head to the 3B thats made out of the polysulfone plastic that can handle up to 250*...it would be a bolt on swap

Walter,

Does March make a higher volume pump than the 815 that doesn't use larger fittings (higher pressure, even)? Or is the volume of the pump limited by the inlet/outlet size in combination with the HP rating?

yep!

the only other pump we have that can do more pressure but not more volume would be our 320-CP-MD...it only does 3gpm but can make 17psi if theres enough restriction.

I'll see if I can find a 3B replacement head for it.Thanks so much for making yourself available for questions.

Hello Walter. Could you please confirm if all I need to convert my 815 PL-C to the SS version are the housing (0809-0150-0000) and the o-ring (0809-0165-1000)? Thanks, and great info from you!

If so, do you have a price for these items?

The housings are $200 at http://www.tescopumps.com/servlet/StoreFront

The o-rings can be had for a couple bucks elsewhere. I didn't find them on the Tesco site.

Yes those are the only two parts you would need to convert over to SS. I can only give you the list price for the parts...you would need to call any one of the distributors to get a price. ($250 housing $2 for o-ring list)
