Electric diaphragm pumps, like ShurFlo and Delavan, are widely used in a variety of spraying applications. They are inexpensive, offer low-cost maintenance, and can effectively perform many jobs with ease. They are commonly used in spot sprayers, small skid sprayers and other spray equipment where spraying long distances is not needed. Due to their pressure rating limitations, electric pumps are not the best choice for spraying tall trees, roofs or high elevation areas. Customers looking to reach great heights will be better served by using a gas engine driven pump.
Electric pumps are great for greenhouse spraying to reduce fumes, or for quiet applications where noise levels could pose a problem such as spraying early morning around neighborhoods or through quiet zones.
