Petainer has unveiled its new petainerKeg Hybrid as part of its global keg family of products. The one-way Hybrid keg offers universal filling, excellent handling, safety and sustainability benefits, says the company. Petainer’s team of scientists and technical experts have worked closely with partners such as KHS and customers to ensure the keg design meets the exacting needs of users across the drinks industry – from beer, wine and cider, to cold brew coffee and kombucha.

PetainerKeg Hybrid has a low total cost of ownership because it can be filled, sent and recycled when it is empty, cutting out costly return logistics and washing processes. In addition, only minimal investment or adjustments to filling lines are required because the keg has been designed to be filled using existing equipment, whether it is manually or on semi and fully automatic lines. The keg can also be sold as a kit and then blown and assembled at the filling plant in the local market, providing cost-efficiencies and helping to improve profits for larger breweries producing high volumes of draught beer.

The keg is claimed to provide superior handling and stacking compared to competitor products, thanks to its ergonomically designed top and bottom chimes, and is just 10% the weight of a traditional steel keg, making handling at the filling plant and on-trade easier. Like other products in the petainerKeg range, Hybrid can be used with universal coupling systems, with flat fittings compatible with Micro Matic A and G systems and well-type fittings compatible with Micro Matic S and D systems, so customers know their product can be dispensed anywhere in the world. Once empty, the keg is easier to depressurise and disassemble than other PET kegs – the chimes simply unclip from the keg body so that all parts can be recycled as part of the waste stream.
