Pump recommendations for spraying a landscape bonding agent

Pump recommendations for spraying a landscape bonding agent

I'm researching the best type of pump for the application of a water based polymer bonding agent.

The liquid polymer is marginally more viscous than water.

The bonding agent is sprayed onto the ground either by handheld hose/spray nozzle or through vehicle mounted spray bar.

The bonding agent is contained in a 1000 litre IBC.

Scenario is low/medium pressure and low volume.
For handheld spraying 20-30 liters per minute.

Power Preference is petrol, but open minded to understanding what the most effective and practical solution is.

I've been steered towards diaphragm pumps and gear pumps.

Really appreciate any insight.

Thank you.

How stable is the liquid to shear? Will it survive in a Waring Blender for 1, 30, or 60 minutes?

Good luck,

To a ChE, the glass is always full - 1/2 air and 1/2 water.

There is a plethora of agricultural spray equipment that would work for you. Diaphragm pumps are probably the most common and will pump dirty fluids.
