Formatec, a Berry Global company, has extended its range of state-of-the-art inhalers with the introduction of a new optimised breathactuated pressurised Metered-Dose Inhaler (pMDI).

The PneumoHaler incorporates an advanced mechanical system to activate the device. Importantly, if the mouth piece is closed, the inside spring of the actuator is not under compression, helping to ensure long-term reliability of operation. The system can be easily adapted for different valves and different types of canisters.

The inhaler’s rounded design with large mouthpiece provides easy handling and maximum comfort for the user. A dose counter/indicator enables patients to keep track of their treatment.

The base actuator unit of the PneumoHaler is supplied pre-assembled with the dose counter/indicator in place. Manufacturers therefore need only to place the filled canister inside and attach the top cover for a fast and efficient filling and assembly process.
