Pumps and sprayers commonly have a unit of measure specification – referred to as “output” , which is commonly measured in mcl, ml, or cc. Output determine how much fluid is dispensed each time the pump or sprayer is actuated.
MCL, or microliters, is a liquid unit of measurement that is equivalent to 1/1,000 ml, which is pretty small. It is commonly used to indicate fine mist sprayers and regular mist sprayers output.
Say you have a fine mist sprayer that has an output of 180 mcl; this would mean that for each spray action, you will get 180 microliters of liquid each time you actuate the sprayer.
Lotion pumps and some trigger sprayers, on the other hand, have a larger output capacity so the output measurement is measured in cc or ml. For most, lotion pumps have an output range of 0.5cc-4cc. Some high output pumps have output range of 4cc - 8cc.
When choosing the correct sprayer, it is important to understand your product so that you can properly determine the sprayer output for maximum results.
