There is a type of sprayer pump that can perform well in any application whether it is for small- to medium-sized spraying needs or larger- spraying needs. This type of pump is called the plastic trigger sprayer pump.
Plastic trigger based pump is highly adaptable to any given application need. The mechanism used in this type of sprayer pump is made of high-tech plastics and is very light-weight. Even its component parts are lightweight. These types of pumps come in different sizes and configurations. All of them have the same basic operation specifications, yet they come in varying configurations as well as in the type of materials that they are made of.
There are two common variations of plastic-type pump available in the market: the boom and the line. Each type of pump comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. As a result, it is important to understand each type's function and how it is able to perform in a specific setting before deciding which type to purchase. Some of the examples below highlight the common pump configurations used by commercial and residential irrigation systems:
Single-stage boom sprayer pumps are the most popular type. They feature a single suction tube and single sprayer basket. Single-stage pump includes separate housing and suction tubing for suction and discharge purposes. These pump houses are generally available in three different types - the single-stage, double-stage and the multi-stage. Each of these types of features different housing configurations to suit specific application needs and requirements.
Another type of high pressure sprayer pump is the piston pump. It is known for its efficiency and ease of use. A piston pump can be used to spray any desired areas with high pressure water or chemicals. For example, this type of irrigation pump is commonly used in agricultural and landscaping irrigation systems.
Casing based sprayer pumps are also available and these work on the same principle as their boom counterparts. However, unlike boom style, casing-based sprayers feature a tube-like housing along with a series of flexible holes at regular intervals along the inside of the unit. These flexible pipes, once filled with chemical, allow the spraying of chemicals at a precise depth without leaking.
