This pump is not designed to be used for salt water and it would void the warranty.

Question

how does flowrate vary with pressure?

The spec says 2.2 gpm at 70 psi. What is the flowrate at other pressures? For example, what is the flowrate with no head pressure? Also, how does the current vary with delivery pressure? Do you have performance curves for this pump that reveal this information?

Thanks

The pump is intended for use in spraying agricultural pesticides and other non-flammable liquids. The factory settings should not be adjusted. There is not a performance curve for this pump. Contact NorthStar Product Support at 1-800-270-0810 for any questions about the appropriate use of the pump and/or optional accessories.

This pump cannot be used to transfer gas or kerosene. This pump is recommended for use in spraying non-flammable liquids such as pesticides, water for plants/trees or dust control, ice control chemicals, or water-based non-flammable sealants or stains for outdoor wood surfaces.

Question

What kind of battery is needed for this pump? Would it run connected to a lawn mower battery? Or a car battery charger?

I wanna have this hooked up to tank in the corner of a greenhouse connected to a 50' hose with your turbo spray gun. I'm not exactly sure what power source I need. Could I use an ATv, lawn mower, car battery , or car battery charger?

12V. We use a deep cycle battery like what you would use on a trolling motor.

There is not a pressure regulator on the pump. You would need to purchase an in-line regulator and install it.

answer 2
Northstar Expert
This diaphragm pump is factory set to 70 PSI. While the pressure is adjustable, Northern Tool doesn't recommend adjusting it. There is no gauge to determine precisely the PSI output once the factory preset has been changed. If you do adjust the PSI, do not operate the pump at pressures which cause the motor to exceed the amperes rating indicated on the name plate. Improper adjustment of the pressure switch setting may cause severe overload or premature failure. Failures due to improper adjustment of the pressure switch setting will not be covered under the warranty.

A barb fitting would have to be purchased locally. Northern Tool does not currently offer barb fittings as an accessory for this diaphragm pump.

Northstar Expert
The maximum temperature this pump can handle would be 140 degrees. The pump itself will also create heat so you would not want to put water through the pump that is 140 degrees. Exceeding the 140 degrees would cause the pump/seals to fail.
