    I imagine they would work fine as long as they have the sanoprene diaphragms. I just PM'd you the email address for the rep. I spoke to. He was very quick to repsond.

    I have used mine for a little over a year now and have had no problems. Sometimes I have to prime the pump and other times it takes care of itself. I have added a threeway at the outlet so I can transfer liquid without unhooking the filter press and triclsmp fittings at all outlets and the inlet. Cleaning is simple. CDL's has a built in pressure cutout that saved the diagram. It has replaced my barrel pump, filter pump and I use it to clean the preheater.

    With my air diaphragm pump I listened for 1 season to the compressor. That next fall I added a shop, about 90' from the sugarhouse, I ran power from the sugarhouse (100A) to the new shop, and in the trench i berried a 3/4" tubing (black poly) to run air to the sugarhouse, noise issue solved and to shut off the compressor I just turn off the main breaker to the shop. Then if I go to wo9rk in the shop I turn the main breaker back on and the compressor off if I'm not using air. this has not proven to be an issue or inconvenience.
