Sherwood sea water strainers allow full water flow at low pressure while thoroughly filtering debris and protecting your boat's livewell, washdown pump or heat exchanger.
Each strainer uses an over-sized 20 mesh 316 stainless steel screen that provides a large ratio of screen area to port size minimizing flow restriction.
Non-corrosive, lightweight strainers allow optional simple in-line mounting to eliminate the need for a support bracket. A convenient clear bowl makes for easy inspection without removing the bowl.

I need to replace the strainers for the water used to cool the Motors on my boat. 28' Chris Craft twin V drive merc motors. Is this the right strainer or what should I be using to replace the ones I have??
No, look at the Groco raw water strainers, here's the linkhttps://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=56742&familyName=Groco+ARG+Series+Strainer+w%2F+Stainless+Basket

can these be used for the a/c pumps for cruise air?
I am using one. Seems to work fine.
Sure can. I use 2 - 1/2" strainers on my A/C. Plumbing is set up so I can bypass one to clean the strainer. Just make sure you size them for your required flow.
That's what they use it for on my 2004 Hunter 36. In my opinion, it is a little small, but it fits the confined space under the cabin sole, I just have to clean it often.
I use it for my AC system, Marine Air 16000 BTUIt does need attention if you use AC constantly since that promotes growth
I think so
If you a/c condenser is water cooled, yes. If you are using to strain/filter raw water from a lake or the ocean, make sure it has a large surface area. Can't see the sizes from here, but it should be rather large.
How much does the 3/4" product weigh?
I do not remember the weight, but it is all plastic except for the wire strainer. Certainly less than a lb., I would guess.
Pretty light, a pound or so.I use it as a raw water intake filter on Mastercraft ski boat. Works great
Very little weight, ounces. The majority of the weight will be the water volume.
are the sherwood raw water strainers recommended for diesel engine raw water intake? If not, recommendations?
Yes, the Sherwood SHE-18001 came as original equipment for my Hunter Yanmar diesel raw water intake. It fits in a small space in a section of the bilge. Other sailors tell me it would be better to have a larger strainer.
thanks for the reply. I will review and make sure i get the correct one.
Thanks for the info.ray
For me, the Sherwood raw water strainer was standard equipment on my Catalina 320 Sailboat diesel engine. The boat has a Yanmar 3YM30, 30HP diesel engine. The clear raw water housing on the original equipment strainer had become a bit opaque after 8 years or so, so I purchased a replacement strainer from Jamestown Distributors. My engine is relatively small, hence the smaller strainer. If a bigger engine, I would make sure I bought a bigger strainer, probably as large as would reasonably fit in the available space.
Don't matter if diesel or gas it's a cooling systemWhat does matter though is the amount of water per minute or hour ur engines need to cool... Make sure u get ones rated correctly... I have them on my boat.. Cummins 4bt's i don't remember my model ### though for the Sherwood strainers
I'm using mine to filter water on the cooling tower so I don't know if it would work for the diesel water intake

5" Wide (from port to port)about 81/2" TallThe filter basket has about 4" Diameter
