Hybrid Kegs

Petainer Hybrid Kegs are democratising the beverage dispense industry, making it easier for both small and large producers to bring their products to more and more consumers. Removing the barriers put in place by steel kegs like upfront investment and high logistics costs, they are disrupting the draught beverage space.

The real alternative to steel kegs

Petainer Hybrid Keg offers commercial benefits for long-distance domestic or export markets and makes it easier for draught beverages to enter more on-premise establishments. It reduces the need for constant reinvestment in steel keg floats. Pre-purged with Nitrogen and ready to use, Hybrid Keg is a true “plug and play” solution free from the troubles of keg losses and write-offs.

  • Reduce Capex through no keg losses and no keg washers needed.
  • Eliminate return logistics and reduce outbound logistics to reduce logistics costs.
  • Eliminate wastewater and other utilities costs; including labour and administration costs.

The safest one-way keg

Three distinctive safety features make the Hybrid keg the perfect product to protect your beverage along the entire supply chain and to be easily handled by your customers in any hospitality venue.

Thanks to the Puncture Resistant Wall, the Hybrid Keg will fail safely if punctured during use. This means that if the keg is ruptured by accident, it will depressurise while keeping its structural integrity.

Every Petainer Hybrid keg is supplied with a Pressure Relief Tool (PRT) to relieve the pressure after the beverage is dispensed. The PRT is attached to the neck area and engages the valve on the keg to depressurise and prepare the keg for recycling.

The Pressure Relief Disc, available as an additional feature, is built into the fitting to prevent accidental over pressurisation, providing end to end supply chain safety with evidence of an overpressure event clearly indicated.

Up to 60% recycled material

The Hybrid ‘Chimes’ (the top and bottom components) are made of 100% recycled material. This unique feature makes the Petainer Hybrid Keg the only one-way keg to use up to 60% recycled material.

Reusing the Chimes

Reusing the chimes also represents significant opportunities for further cost savings. The chimes are easily detachable and if reused can save up to 40% on your next purchase. If they cannot be returned, you can simply recycle them instead.

… at the time, we did not feel that we could commit to the expense of purchasing a fleet of stainless-steel tanks and a system to sanitize them … It was also great to have flexibility in terms of minimum orders from our Petainer Kegs supplier when we first started kegging products. We were able to purchase a comfortable number of kegs to start until we gained more traction in the marketplace and increased our distribution.
