Apart from being one of the most interesting ways of packaging and dispensing pharma and medical device products, BOV is an innovative technology, lowering the environmental footprint during the packaging process and improving convenience through the application process.
Sustainable Health Care Dispensing Systems
The unique Bag-on-Valve system is developed to not only produce a superior spray dispensing system, but to reduce our ecological footprint through a sustainable packaging process. Bag-on-Valve accomplishes this through the reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) compared with the traditional aerosols. VOC’s are organic chemicals with a high vapor pressure which contribute to air pollution outdoors and inside our homes. VOC’s are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest.
The BOV system uses nitrogen or compressed air as propellant, leaving a smaller ecological footprint. The degree of emptying is also very high, up to nearly 100 per cent for water-based solutions – leaving no waste and can be sprayed in all angles with the same performance.
A Bag on Valve overview
The Bag-on-Valve system consists of a rolled-up multi-layered flexible pouch attached to an aerosol valve. In the production of a BoV product, compressed air or nitrogen is charged into the can, and an aerosol valve with the bag attached is crimped onto the container. The formulation is forced through the aerosol valve stem to fill the bag. When the spray button is pressed, the product is squeezed out of the bag by the compressed air/nitrogen, which creates the dispensing as a spray, cream or gel.
