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.
