The challenges of pumping nitric acid       

Higher concentrations of Nitric Acid can attached most metals so pumps manufactured from techno polymers are more suitable also be heavy depending on the concentration and temperature.  Nitric acid has a specfic gravity of 1.5 so care must be taken at higher conentrations that the motor and magnetic coupling (if using a mag drive pump) are not over loaded.
