This is a replacement pump and it does not come with corded switch control. You can buy the corded switch controller at parts stores that will pair up to the pump. I just buy the opposing plug mate then I just fuse my hot side and go through a toggle switch I mount on 4 wheeler dash to start/stop pump.

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.

I have found that if you keep the nozzles and pump paired that came on sprayer you will be just fine. I widened my 10 ft boom on one sprayer to 16 ft and I ordered four additional identical nozzles that Northstar origionally spec out and kicked up the pump to a Northstar 5.5 gpm and I held my 70 psi and flow rate. I measured the spray width to verify my 16 ft width I was after. You have to match gpm to nozzle uses and do math for flow rates and pattern then match this info to the right pump gpm and ground speed to hit rates on chemical being applied.

answer 2
No check valve but Northstar mounts pump on top of tank rather than the bottom like some manufacturers do so 99% of drip flow is cut off when you shut power off to pump.

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?

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.
