  • Patent number: 8210167
    Abstract: The sprayer device utilizes a friction held piston that fires automatically upon full depression of the firing cap. A user may procure a monodose of medicine by (i) unlocking a child resistant mechanism; (ii) applying compressive force against the firing cap to first compress the spring and then to push the piston out of a friction area such that the spring causes the distal end of the piston to break the medicine container to drive medicine through the spray nozzle. The device includes a tear-away child resistant outer locking mechanism. Different length stops meter the amount of medicine dispensed. A two cap plug cap on the proximal and distal ends of the medicine package act as pistons. A piercer attached to a proximal end of the monodose medicine package moves upwardly when the piston is fired to pierce the medicine package and to drive medicine through the spray nozzle.

  • Patent number: 8028865
    Abstract: A two-way dispenser cap has a main cap member and a toggle valve. The main cap member has two passages that allow material from inside an attached container to dispense. The first passage leads to a trap chamber that is defined by the main cap member and the toggle valve walls. The second passage leads to an outlet passage for continuous pouring dispensation. The toggle valve pivots in relation to the two-way dispenser cap between one of three positions: no dispensation, metered dispensation from the trap chamber passage or continuous pour dispensation. When the toggle valve pivots to open the trap chamber passage, the trap chamber inlet is closed off. When the toggle valve pivots to open the continuous pour passage, the trap chamber outlet remains closed. When the toggle valve pivots to the closed position, both the inlet passages are in fluid communication with the attached container's interior, but both outlets are closed. The main cap member has a recessed top portion.

  • Patent number: 7857169
    Abstract: A metered dispenser includes a housing including a reciprocal piston drive stem including an inlet opening at a first end thereof, a floating piston at a second end, and a passage between the first and second ends. An inlet valve is provided adjacent the first end for permitting entry of liquid product into the passage. A biased cocking mechanism is reciprocally disposed substantially within the housing. A biased loading mechanism is movable in a second generally opposite direction by the cocking mechanism, and is engageable with the piston drive stem to move the drive stem in the second direction. When the cocking mechanism is moved from an initial rest position toward the second direction, a series of operations allow the loading mechanism to project the drive stem in the first direction to dispense a metered dose of liquid product through a discharge orifice provided adjacent the second end.
