Schütz expands product portfolio by adding new plastic jerrycans

With the SC1 jerrycan series, Schütz is presenting a new plastic container for smaller filling quantities at interpack. The new product guarantees the highest quality and convenient, clean handling. With their innovative design, these jerrycans offer a high degree of stability, easy and safe stackability and optimum emptying. The jerrycans are available in different sizes and variants and are suitable for a wide range of applications.

The latest product line from Schütz fits seamlessly into the successful product portfolio of IBCs, plastic and steel drums. Based on years of expertise in multilayer extrusion blow moulding technology, the packaging expert has developed a new transport and storage solution for smaller filling quantities. The SC1 jerrycans are produced with a newly developed machine technology at the main factory in Selters, using state-of-the-art automation to ensure maximum efficiency, quality and cleanliness in the production process. The result is a product with superior overall performance.

A wide range of variants
Schütz’s SC1 jerrycans are available in different configurations and sizes for the filling quantities 5l, 10l, 15l, 20l, 25l and 30l. Customers have a choice of different sizes and also different colours. Depending on the selected jerrycan colour and the filling product, the jerrycans can include an embossed litre gauge, with an additional transparent gauge as required. Schütz offers DN 45, DN 55 and DN 60 caps in different configurations for the various jerrycan sizes. The jerrycans are designed for different pallet types. The new product line will also be available in a Green Layer variant. In these variants, Schütz uses modern 3-layer extrusion machines to incorporate 30% high-quality recycled material into the canisters. The recyclate is used exclusively for the middle layer, ensuring that the filling product and the environment only come into direct contact with virgin material.

Optimum process support and convenient handling
The distinctive rib geometry of the jerrycan corners and base as well as uniform wall thicknesses with optimum use of material give the SC1 jerrycan range a high degree of dimensional stability and strong crush resistance when filled and stacked. The ring on the top is perfectly aligned with the geometry of the base to create a form-fitting bond when stacked. This provides excellent grip, protects against slipping and thus enables safe stacking. The anatomically shaped handle with a large hand recess and small recess for the handle in the base ensures comfortable and safe handling when carrying and emptying – even when wearing gloves. The hand recess and recesses around the closure area are sloped so that liquids can drain away instead of accumulating, and the design ensures optimum emptying. The handle is separate from the filling volume and the corners around the cap are flattened to avoid product residue from accumulating. Large flat areas are provided on both sides for labelling.

Enhanced safety for users and filling products
Schütz’s SC1 jerrycans are available with either X1.9 or Y1.9 hazardous goods approval. They are subject to permanent quality testing and control during production, backed by regular practical and laboratory tests in the in-house test laboratories. Optionally, the new jerrycans are also available with a barrier layer. This layer is applied to the outside and inside of the canisters in a special process and ensures increased solvent resistance as well as higher transport safety and longer shelf life of the filling material, depending on the product.
