I'm an electrical engineer building a pump system to transport various disinfectants from large drums into smaller bottles for my parents' family gym business. I've realized that I need something that's made to transport chemicals, probably magnetic drive, otherwise the seals and/or diaphragm may dissolve. I'd also like it to be usable in a sprayer application for spraying gym equipment, so a higher psi is needed. I was looking at this pump, but the psi is very low.
Here are some additional questions:
- For isopropyl or ethyl mixes, what type of pump internal materials should I look for?
- I'm also considering this, which contains 13% alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride, 13% alkyl dimethyl ethylbenzyl ammonium chloride, and 73% other (probably inert)
- Should I be looking at diaphragm pumps or something else?
- Any disinfectant mixes other than alcohols that you could recommend that might work with more pumps on the market?
- Ideally, the pump would support up to 100psi so that we can use it as a sprayer for some equipment and surfaces.
- Ability to run dry, or just shut off if dry
- Not gigantic in size
