Good Product at a good price. I received what was advertised and the delivery time was spot on. My application is different than most and my selection of the pump was based on it's potential function and dimensions. Unfortunately my resins are thicker than the pump can handle. The only piece of info I could have used, but no one supplies, is a viscosity range the pump operates in.
Will the Pump for 5 Gallon Pail work for thick resins up to 20,000 mPa s viscocity?
I am trying to pump urethane components from 5 gallon pails with pull top type pouring spouts. I also need to know it the cap screws to the flexible spout that pulls up from these common 5 gallon pails.
The Pump for 5 Gallon Pail from Rockwell Labs is actually designed to fit a 1 gallon bottle, but Rockwell adds a yellow adapter to the pump that allows it to be threaded on a 5 gallon pour top spout. The products that this is primarily used with has a viscosity of 1000-2000 cP, depending on the flow rate (InVade Bio Drain and InVade Bio Cleaner). The pump can handle products with viscosity up to 3000 cP (centipoise), which is equal to 3 Pa s or 3,000 mPa s. So a very thick resin would not flow through this pump. The manufacturer does not recommend using this pump for heavy solvents.
