Abstract: We present a new family of spherically symmetric, static solutions of the Einstein field equations in isotropic, comoving coordinates. The radial pressure at each interior point of these models vanishes yet equilibrium is still possible. The constant density Florides solution which describes the gravitational field inside an Einstein cluster is obtained as a special case of our solution-generating method. We show that our solutions can be utilized to model strange star candidates such as Her. X-1, SAX J1808.4-3658(SS2), SAX J1808.4-3658(SS1) and PSR J1614-2230.
