For many years, agrochemicals have faced the problem of venting in/out and equalizing the air pressure. External impurities plugging up the small opening on the traditional cap design often lead to poor venting function, thus increasing the danger of human contact.

Tri-Sure® R&D has found a solution to this by developing the MPV3 plastic cap design.

This patent pending system uses the minute gaps between the thread of the cap and the bottle neck of the container, in combination with a PTFE membrane embedded in the sealing disc, to perform the venting function.  This novel idea enables the cap to function without the opening on the top and avoiding any possibility of contamination during storage.  

The latest evolution for the agrochemical industry is the combination of induction heat seal (IHS) and MPV3.  The successful development of this system protects the product from intentional tampering, while allowing air pressure to equalize and reduce transport risks.
