How To Measure Your Mini Trigger Sprayer

Pumps and sprayers commonly have a unit of measure specification – referred to as “output” , which is commonly measured in mcl, ml, or cc. Output determine how much fluid is dispensed each time the pump or Mini Trigger Sprayer suppliers is actuated.

  MCL, or microliters, is a liquid unit of measurement that is equivalent to 1/1,000 ml, which is pretty small. It is commonly used to indicate fine mist sprayers and regular mist sprayers output.

  Say you have a fine mist sprayer that has an output of 180 mcl; this would mean that for each spray action, you will get 180 microliters of liquid each time you actuate the sprayer.

  Lotion pumps and some trigger sprayers, on the other hand, have a larger output capacity so the output measurement is measured in cc or ml. For most, lotion pumps have an output range of 0.5cc-4cc. Some high output pumps have output range of 4cc - 8cc.

  When choosing the correct sprayer, it is important to understand your product so that you can properly determine the sprayer output for maximum results.

  Dip Tube Lengths are an area of packaging that can be wildly confusing. If you need help measuring the length of dip tubes - have no fear, we are here to help!

  Most of the pump and sprayer manufacturers produce pumps with one standard dip tube length that is designed to be long so you can trim it to your needs. If you are ordering pumps and sprayers as a special order, most manufacturers’ will cut the dip tube for you, or dip tubes can be cut as a secondary process after they have been produced.

  Either way, you still need to determine the proper length of the dip tube in order to have a optimal fit. There are many ways to determine dip tube length, let’s go through one way that we normally use here at vimex-m

  Step By Step

  Begin the process by measuring the length from the gasket to the notch end of the dip tube, as it is originally produced. The number that you find will give you the overall dip tube length, let’s call this measurement A.

  Next, you will need to measure the bottle your pump/sprayer goes in. You can do this by measuring from the land (the top of the bottle), all the way to the bottom of the container (or simply refer to the technical drawing for exact measurement). Subtract 3/32" (inch) from this measurement to compensate for the push up, and let’s call this measurement B.
