NEW RESEARCH MAY REVOLUTIONIZE LIQUIDS DISPENSING

 TORONTO, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ - Move over aerosol can, trigger sprayer and hand pump: your days may be numbered.
 Research and development conducted in Canada has created a new force to be reckoned with in liquids dispensing: Vacuum Valve technology.
 According to experts in the field, this new technique of emptying a vessel of its contents may be an answer to the world wide search for an alternative to those traditional dispensers. That search has become an important battle in the war against excess packaging, costs and pollution. A new crop of Government packaging regulations is also fuelling this search.
 The Vacuum Valve approach replaces the moving parts of traditional dispensers by harnessing vacuum and gravity to act as a natural valve. Not only does this save money and substantially reduce waste, it also provides altogether new dispensing possibilities. With Vacuum Valve technology for example, it is possible to convert liquid to thick foam without a can.
 The simplicity of the technique permits application in the packaging and dispensing of virtually all consumer and industrial liquids, including water.
 Since Vacuum Valve based dispensers do not wear out with normal use, they may also usher in a new era of bulk dispensing opportunities.
 The emerging consensus is that Vacuum Valve technology is going to have a major impact on the packaging industry, and consumer lifestyles, for years to come.
 Development of patents has been awarded to an Oakville, Ontario firm Rogers & Scott. Development licenses will be provided in order to make the technology available across North America and internationally.
