Your question is similar to ' how long is a rope? '
Put your spec's to a pump producer/specialist and let him build or select one for you.

Considering the viscosity of typical hand sanitizer, I suspect a peristaltic pump might be more suitable than a diaphragm pump for your purpose.
I think you are going to find it difficult to get pump lifetime data from pump manufacturers, since lifetime will be dependent on the materials the pump has to handle and the environmental conditions prevailing.

As there are already many hand sanitiser pumps on the market, why do you think you can make a commercial product the will sell?
What will make your design stand out from the competition?
That is a very important question you need to answer before you go down the design, manufacturing and marketing path.
