Methanol medium pressure pump needed

  1. May 12, 2008 #1
    I have a project that i am doing that requires that i pump methanol at a temperature of about 140F at a volume of about 1 to 2 gpm and a pressure of around 150 - 200 psi. It must be capable of 'run dry' by which i mean that it may not always have fluid to pump. Can anyone give me a lead on a pump that will fill this need?

    You'll probably have to go with a large peristaltic pump. I must say that the flow and higher pressure that you're looking for may make it tough to find in a single package.

    Try taking a look here:

    This one I came across will do the flow and the pressure. I didn't look into chemical compatibility though.
