I have a 55 gallon drum of a soultion 15% alcohol and 85% water). I want to pull a vacuum it to recover some of the alcohol vapors The conditions are STP. Looking at the vapor pressures of water and the alcohol, my first thought is to use the alchohol as my seal fluid. Is this a good idea or would the water be the better way to go? Does anyone have any suggestions or directions?
