The Gold Standard Valve Technology for Metered Dose Inhalers

The Gold standard metering valves for HFA pMDIs

Our DF30 metering valve platform has been the industry gold standard for decades and is continually optimized.

It has widely been considered the benchmark metering valve for hydrofluoralkanes (HFA) propellant pMDIs.

However, with the pharmaceutical industry now entering a new and more environmentally friendly era, companies have turned their attentions to new and lower CO2 footprint propellants. Aptar has responded to this new challenge by optimizing the DF30 metering valve to be compatible with these new formulations.

Trusted technology compliant with stringent regulatory standards

Our DF30 technology platform powers several blockbuster prescription drug products marketed worldwide responding to the needs of very different regulatory standards. It is approved in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the U.S.A.

Ultra clean proprietary elastomer gaskets

Our ultra clean elastomers which are manufactured within our dedicated elastomer facility, have been at the core of our metering valve technology for decades. Our elastomers are specifically developed to meet the needs of our client’s pMDI formulations, which also provides you with confidence that supplies will be met.
