    What is the fluid used for pump working at 100 C?

    I may use the Dayton 1/4 HP Centrifugal Pump(5PXX9) in the environmental test. We may want to test it in the temperature equal or greater than 100 C. What kind of fluid can be used for the pumping?

    The specs on that pump say it's good up to 82 Celsius. So the 100 will probably nuke that pump.

    Water will work fine up to around 212

    Thank you very much. What is the highest temperature can we use for the pump with water? Do you have any recommendations of the flow meters for hot water?

    According to their specs 180 degrees F was tops for that pump.

    Flow meters come in plastic and metal of different sorts. You are going to need metal everything. No plastic at those temperatures.

    If we use 180 degrees F for that.Is it possible to boil the water away? as it's pretty close to the boiling temperature of water.

    Water boils at 212, so the 180 isn't a problem. Just don't touch the pump housing. You will get burnt.
