Components of a Shampoo Pump

To really understand how to open any shampoo pump, you need to understand the mechanism behind the pump.

So, let’s define the components of a shampoo pump, how they contribute to the functionality of the pumping and how to use them.

Generally, a Shampoo pump consists of the following components:

Pump Actuator

A pump actuator or head is what you press down to pump the product from the bottle or container.

It’s mostly made of plastic, and it comes in various designs.

It has up-lock or down-lock attributes to protect from accidental spilling.

Pump Closure

The pump closure tightens the whole pump assembly onto the bottle neck finish. It is often developed of plastic and mostly comes with a smooth or rib side surface.

Pump Gasket

The pump gasket is friction fitted to the inside of the pump closure. It guides the bottle land area to prevent the leakage of the product.

Depending on the design, The gasket can be made with many materials.

Pump Housing

The pump housing connects all the other components.

It holds them and serves as the transfer chamber, sending the product through the dip tube to the actuator before going to the user’s hand.

The size and design of the pump housing depend on the manufacturer.

Pump Dip Tube

The pump dip tube is a long plastic tube that goes down to the bottle bottom from the lotion pump.

It is often made of PP plastic, and the length differs according to the product’s bottle.

A well-cut dip will increase product usage and prevent blockage.

How Does a Shampoo Pump Work

The shampoo pump ensures the passage of the products from the bottle to the user’s hand.

It always maximizes product usage and prevents accidental spilling.

It is similar to an air suction device as it works by drawing the product from the container to the user’s hand against the law of gravity.

You will have to press down the pump actuator, so the piston compresses the spring and produces upward air pressure.

This pressure sucks the product into the dip tube and releases it to the hand.

When you release the pump actuator, every component returns to its original position, seals the chamber, and prevents the product from going back into the container.

This remnant will then flow out first when you press the actuator again.

Since we’ve understood the components of the shampoo pump and how they work together, let’s dive into the process of opening the shampoo pumps of some famous brands.

We’ve already explained the component, so the description will come quite quickly as the mechanisms are the same for almost all.
