Rieke Packaging Systems’ new version of its “pioneering” High Viscosity Dispensing System (HDVS), the Airless HDVS, has been specifically designed for the pharmaceutical sector, and particularly for dermatological emollient creams and other highly viscous products that are “extremely difficult” to dispense effectively.
Rieke, which claims the dispenser can achieve a minimum 98% product evacuation, says creams and lotions’ inability to self-level means conventional pumps tend to draw product from the container’s centre, leaving substantial residue clinging to the side. In contrast, Airless HDVS uses airless and piston-up technology to push product up from the bottom of the pack. It can also dispense “very large” amounts – “of as much as 500ml and more”. Rieke says airless operation is also ideal for oxygen-sensitive products, while the absence of metal contact parts “eliminates the risk of contamination”.
