Actuators and Dose Counters

Bespak®’s actuators and integrated dose counter (IDC) technology have been helping people breathe more easily for decades, with a design that’s optimised for our pressurised metered dose inhaler (pMDI) valves and with scope to develop customised solutions.


Our actuators are optimised to work with our pMDI valves and standard canisters. We also work with customers to develop exclusive actuator designs or formula-specific devices and can develop customised actuators in parallel with the chosen container closure system.

Giving patients and medical professionals peace of mind

At Bespak, our customisable dose counting actuators are specially designed to reliably display the remaining doses in a pMDI, and come with end-of-life indication, ensuring patients know how many doses they have taken and when they need a refill.
