Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9936334A1] An apparatus is described for use with a pressurised aerosol container (15) having a cylindrical wall (1A) with a central axis. The wall defines a major storage portion of the aerosol container and an opening. The apparatus comprises a ferrule (2A) for closure of the opening, a metered dose valve (62) for dispensing a metered dose of an aerosol formulation from the container. The valve has an inlet (4A). The valve is preferably disposed in the ferrule substantially along the central axis. The apparatus also has an annular member (90A) with an inner end that affords fluid communication between the major storage portion of the aerosol container and the inlet of the valve. The annular member is sized, shaped and positioned to restrict the fluid communication between the major storage portion of the container and the valve inlet to only that fluid communication provided through the opening (82A) of the annular member. The opening is situated so that it is adjacent to the central axis.
