Lotion pumps are a great way to dispense viscous liquids, such as body lotions, hand creams, and shampoos. Unlike squeeze bottles, lotion pumps dispense the exact amount of product each time an actuator is pressed. Lotion pumps are available in different shapes and sizes, but they all operate by the same basic principle. Take a look inside a plastic lotion pump to learn how it works and how to choose the best one for your needs.
Lotion pumps have two basic components: a dip tube and a pump. The dip tube is made of PP plastic and extends the reach of the pump to the bottom of the bottle. The dip tube should be cut appropriately to maximize the amount of product it can deliver and prevent the pump from clogging. Lotion pumps can be used with a variety of bottles, including those with thicker sides. Depending on the size and type of bottle, a lotion pump may be larger or smaller than a bottle, or the product may not be contained at all.
Lotion pumps have a spring-loaded actuator. When a consumer presses the pump actuator, an upward air pressure draws a ball into the chamber or dip tube, and then releases the product. The actuator then returns to its up position, sealing the chamber. This process is known as priming. The first time a consumer uses the pump, the spring will push back into the pump, and the product will come out faster.
