Pressurized Aerosol Container Patents (Class 222/635)
  • Patent number: 10213565
    Abstract: A device for providing positive expiratory pressure therapy to a patient wherein exhaled air is at a comparatively higher pressure than atmospheric pressure, said device including a container to hold liquid, an air inlet means to allow entry of air into the container and an air outlet to allow air to vent from the container. The air inlet means includes a conduit to discharge the exhaled air. The conduit is fixed in position so that the exhaled air is discharged at or substantially adjacent the base of the container. In use liquid is introduced into the container to a predetermined level and the bottom of the conduit is below the predetermined level of liquid to provide a desired level of positive pressure and the air outlet is above the predetermined level of liquid.

  • Patent number: 10029845
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of turbophoresis and provides a relatively simple and low cost solution for a metered dose inhaler, in particular, a pressure-actuated metered dose inhaler. A metering valve (100) comprises a valve body (110), a valve stem (130) mounted within the valve body (110) and a spring element (140) for biasing the valve stem (130) in an “at rest” position. A pre-metering region (170) is formed in the valve stem (130) which is provided with a miniature valve seal (210) at its inlet (180). The miniature valve seal (210) effectively isolates the pre-metering region (170) from surrounding bulk formulation (4) within a canister (1) in which the metering valve (100) is mounted when the valve stem (130) is in the “at rest” position.

  • Publication number: 20110210141
    Abstract: Methods and systems for the dosed dispensing of a liquid from a container connected to an outflow channel closable by a liquid valve are presented. Such methods include opening the liquid valve, dispensing a measure of liquid from the container through the outflow channel, closing the liquid valve, and blowing out the outflow channel after closing the liquid valve. For example, during or after closing of the liquid valve the outflow channel can be connected to a gaseous source, the gas at a pressure greater than atmospheric pressure. Or, for example, where Flair™ technology is used, a limited quantity of a displacing gas can be guided to the outflow channel during or after closing of the liquid valve, or can be guided into an intermediate chamber connected to the outflow channel during or after closing of the liquid valve.

  • Publication number: 20110168570
    Abstract: Delivery mechanisms for dispersing a pathogen disinfectant liquid into the air or onto a surface are disclosed. There is an apparatus including a container comprising a sunlight-resistant compartment containing a pathogen disinfectant liquid, a propellant, and an actuator coupled to a valve for opening and closing the valve, wherein opening of the valve causes the propellant to move at least a portion of the pathogen disinfectant liquid through an orifice in the container. Also disclosed are a system and method for dispersing a pathogen disinfectant liquid into the air in an indoor environment where a pathogen disinfectant liquid is dispersed into circulating air in a HVAC system to disinfect the air in the indoor environment. Further disclosed is an apparatus for dispersing a pathogen disinfectant liquid into the air from a cartridge through the use of an automotive lighter receptacle or USB port.

  • Publication number: 20110142530
    Abstract: The invention provides an exclusive device for applying shave cream to the body which includes a proprietary, replaceable, Aerosol reservoir (can) that contains shave gel and is small enough to fit in the hand to easily apply the gel to the body. The brush attached to the can contains a brush head. It is designed to aerate and apply the gel in a foamy manner. The dispensing mechanism in the brush contains a simple spring loaded button which, when depressed in a downward direction, allows the gel to move from the can through a delivery tube, through the body of the brush to the hollow core of the bristles of the brush to be applied to the body. This shave cream dispensing system employs simple mechanics and it is small enough for travel.
