We have a 2 organic lab groups (2 student labs in one building and 4 in another) that use lots of organic solvents.


In recent years, one of these groups has been pumping solvents from 5-gal (20-L) drums in =BD- and 1-L bottles with a (grounded) hand pump in a dedicated dispensing room. When one of the pumps died, the available replacement seemed similar, but has not worked well.


Do you have a good product for this purpose, or a better system?
