Yes, petainerKeg™ are delivered clean and ready to fill – no water, steam, or chemical cleaning agents needed.
Yes, petainerKegs are available from stock. Fast reactions to cover sales peaks or when unforeseen demands occur.
The petainerKeg™ is proven to withstand constant temperatures of up to 30°C /86 F degrees for a period of 1 week. The CO2 content should not exceed 5.5 g/l and the burst pressure is > 7 bar. In the interest of product quality, we recommend monitoring all kegs throughout the supply chain. The kegs are currently used across the globe.
Yes, when using petaierKegs according our instructions and specifications, petainerKegs are easy to handle and safe products.
The petainerKegs are available in two versions, with and without “pressure relief function”.
The petainerKegs with pressure relief function depressurizes the system automatically at decoupling.
The petainerKegTM Classic is also protected by outer packaging, either a cardboard box, or a polypropylene sleeve and Linestar and Hybrid are additionally more stable by itself.
Technical pre & after sales programs help customers and end-user in all regards from the set-up of a full automatic blowing and filling line to end-customer trainings.
When filled, handled and transported correctly, petainerKegs are completely safe. For your security the following should be observed:
Avoid sharp objects.
Maintain the correct working pressure (Max 3bar).
Always handle with care.
Burst pressure of a petainerKeg™ is >7bar.
The shelf life offered by any container is influenced by the sterility of the product inside, the filling process and the sterility of the container. The ability of the container to prevent the ingress of oxygen / egress of CO2 and protect from UV light are also important.
petainerKegs are delivered clean and micro-biologically sterile according our specifications.
The petainerKegTM material contains an active O2 barrier (oxygen scavenger) and a passive CO2 barrier (Nylon). petainerKegs also contain a brown pigment within the plastic and are transported within an outer packaging to eliminate light influence.
As such, they can offer a shelf life equal to or better than any “standard” metal containers.
petainerKeg™ provides a filled shelf life of 9 months.
Once the keg is tapped and operational, the product inside the keg is recommended to be used with a shelf life of 6-9 weeks.
Like any pressurised container, petainerKegs are completely safe when transported, within the correct temperature guidelines.
petainerKegs should be stored at 20 – 22°C/68-72 F, although higher temperatures (up to 30°C/86 F) can be tolerated for short periods, of up to one week.
Temperature tests of up to 50°C/122 F have been undertaken. Results indicate that the Petainer still performs within specification, but the effect on product is questionable.
Yes, according to the available “hand filling” instructions.
Blown Classic- and USD-petainerKegs from our plant in As are delivered clean and micro-biologically sterile according our specifications. They are pressurised with sterile air.
Before filling, kegs must be purged (to remove O2) using inert gas – typically CO2 or N2.
petainerKegs Linestar and Hybrid are general and Classic and USD on special orders are delivered pre-flushed with N2 (<0,2% O2 in the keg).
All petainerKegs produced in USA are pre-flushed with N2 (<0,2% O2 in the keg, 0,7bar/10,5PSI)
No, Petainer has contracted independent taste studies with trained taste panels that confirm that petainerKeg™ does not affect the flavour of the beer or wine even after 12 months of storage. The studies also highlight that the PET taste results equal the results of stainless steel kegs.
Scientific research confirms this:
Yes 100%. petainerKegs, packaging and fittings are amongst the greenest of contemporary packaging and can be fully recycled (where facilities allow).
Yes, petainerKeg™ is fully and easily recyclable in a standard plastic recycling stream.
All petainerKegs with npr (no pressure relief) function can get handled like steel kegs and
for petainerKegs with pr (pressure relief) function please follow our “use and disposal” instruction related to the petainerKegTM version which you are using.
