If the pressure was that great with a new impeller, I suspect that an obstructed injection port in the mixing elbow may be the villain. Perhaps debris blown out of the heat exchanger bundle or otherwise. Heat exchangers are not that difficult to clean out but a pain in the neck. The injection nozzle on the mixing elbow? Well, changing the elbow may be the fastest--and surely cleanest--solution.
