Nasal and throat spray dispensers: how are they packaged and assembled?

SARG is a leading manufacturer of feeding systems for machinery to assembly, apply, and package nasal dispensers and throat sprays. In this article we wish to explain in detail how a nasal dispenser is made, how it is assembled and what machinery is used and what innovations have been made in this field. 

Nasal dispensers are devices that are used to perform nasal washes in children and adults, thanks to which it is possible to apply a decongestant action in the nasal cavities and promote proper breathing. Sulfuric, hypertonic, or isotonic substances are used in them. A nasal dispenser consists of a nozzle that must be inserted in the nostril. Thanks to nasal dispensers, it is possible to carry out successful nasal washes that remove phlegm secretions on the one hand and clean the mucous membranes on the other one. In addition, using nasal dispensers, allergens, pathogens, and mediators of inflammation can be removed. The different saline components in the solutions improve mucociliary cleansing. A nasal dispenser is equipped with a protective cap, and should be used on average 3 to 4 times a day, carrying out 2 sprays for each of the two nostrils. The bottle should be held vertically, and the nozzle should be gently placed at the opening of the nostril. 

But how does the production cycle of nasal dispensers work?

Nasal dispensers: production cycle

After having seen how a nasal dispenser is made, let’s review the production cycle. There are two different types of industries involved in this: on the one hand, those that manufacture and assemble the different components of the dispensers, and on the other hand, those that assemble these components during the process of filling them with the content of bottles to create the final product. SARG designs and supplies specific and highly innovative systems to be used in filling and packaging systems. In any case, the application of dispensers on bottles or the packaging of nasal dispensers requires the presence of a feeding system with vibrating systems or mechanical part orienting devices of various types, depending on the specific needs. When it comes to nasal dispensers and, in general, pharmaceutical components, details are of great importance. For this reason there is a need for solutions that can ensure perfect integrity and avoid any possible issues that could affect the safety and effectiveness of the devices.
