Classic Kegs

The one-way keg that allows you to swiftly get into the draught market with low or no additional costs. It is supplied with a carton box to protect your product from UV and Light.

The most cost-effective one-way keg

The Classic is the first one-way keg designed by Petainer. This product is available in a broad range of sizes and provides you with the lowest packaging price per litre. Petainer Classic Keg offers commercial benefits for long-distance domestic or export markets and makes it easier for draught beverages to enter more on-premises establishments.

  • 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.

Every Petainer Classic 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.

Recyclable PET keg

The Classic Keg body is made of PET and can be easily depressurised and disassembled after use. It can be recycled into commercial waste systems together with its carton box.
