IDENTIFYING PARTS OF A SOAP DISPENSER PUMP
A simple soap dispenser pump is made up lotion pump of several components that work together to deliver a precise amount of liquid. These components include:
Closure:the part of the pump that fastens to the bottle neck, usually featuring a smooth or ribbed surface
Actuator:this is the top of the pump, also known as the pump head, that is pressed down to dispense the product
Outer gasket:fits inside the closure and is usually made of plastic or rubber, responsible for preventing product leakage
Housing:the main pump assembly that keeps pump components in the right position and sends fluids into the actuator
Dip tube:the visible tube that extends from the housing to the bottom of the container that carries fluids up for dispensing
Interior components:a variety of parts including a spring, ball, piston, and/or stem that helps move the product from the container to the actuator
THE MECHANICS OF A SOAP DISPENSING PUMP
The soap dispensing pump relies on both the components of the bottle and air suction to draw the fluid upwards and fight against the law of gravity.
Each time you push down on, or prime, the actuator, the piston puts pressure on the spring and moves the ball upward, taking some soap product with it.
When you release the actuator, the piston and spring return to their resting position, sealing off the housing chamber to stop liquid from flowing back up into the bottle.
DISPENSING AMOUNT OPTIONS
Actuators are designed to meet different output needs. This output of product is measured in either milliliters (ml) or cubic centimeters (cc).
These measurements matter for proper dosing, ranging from outputs as small as .5 cc and as large as 8 cc. You can order the pump output style that best suits your needs based on the type of product you are bottling.
