Follow Up : Choosing the Right Sprayer and Getting the Dip Tube Cut to Size


This article is a follow-up to our Packaging Crash Course article “Quick Question Monday: What Is Sprayer Or Pump Output and How Are They Measured?”

Whether it is measured in mcl, ml, or cc, fine mist sprayers and lotion pump have a specific output volume whenever the actuator is pressed. Output of a lotion pump are generally much higher than a sprayer as the pump has a bigger pump engine to dispense more products, and it is designed for higher output requirements like body lotion, shampoos, hand sanitizers, dish washing soap, etc. The product being dispensed are generally higher in viscosity, such as soap and cream.

For fine mist sprayers, the liquid, or low viscosity oil products, are “atomized” in the sprayer engine and sprayed out in a wide, controlled pattern. These sprayers are designed to give a wide area of coverage when products are dispensed. Products are turned into a very fine mist, hence the term atomized, and sprayed in a wide but predictable pattern.

Our Stock Sprayers

Available on BottleStore today, are the 20-410 and 24-410 size fine mist sprayers in black or white color, with a clear plastic dust cover hood, for immediate purchase and shipments. These sprayers are designed to fit any plastic bottles with 20-410 or 24-410 neck finish, and glass bottles with 20-400 and 24-400 neck finish with a depressed bead that allows the closure to pass through. These sprayers comes with a standard, flexible PP dip tube that can be cut to length for your specific application.
