    Default Diaphragm pumps

    I just saw another option for those looking for a lower priced diaphragm pump that is air powered for pumping hot syrup to their filter press. This looks to have good specs, it's rated for 275F and the syrup in and out openings are 3/8". The price looks good too, lower than others I linked in the past. https://www.zoro.com/warren-rupp-dou...specifications
    This may be available from others at a lower price, check around.
    My pump works very well but apparently it is no longer available, reason unknown. Mine pumps 5.? GPM but has a max temp of 200F, this new one does 5.0GPM and up to 275F. Check it out.
    Dave Klish about 400 taps, down from much more. Retired from collecting and boiling in 2021. Mostly because of a bad hip.

    Many using either a 7" or 10" (or a 7.5") filter press are happy with 5 gpm to filter syrup.
