HDPE Canisters

We manufacture all products from so-called High Density Polyethylene. This thermoplastic HDPE plastic impresses due to its range of positive material properties, such as a high level of robustness and resistance.

For example, WERIT PE Canisters possess optimum deformation properties and are also resistant to most alkalis, acids and other chemical bonds. Even at temperatures of minus 40 and plus 70 degrees Celsius, our plastic canisters keep their shape and are therefore always ready for use.

The Standard and Ecovent® Canisters from plastic canister manufacturer WERIT

As a customer of WERIT, you will benefit from a wide range of products. For example, our canister range, produced using brand new HDPE in Manchester (UK), is distinguished by its large selection of weight classes and at the same time a wide range of colour options. As well as our Standard Canisters, we also offer our Ecovent® Special Canisters.

The patented Ecovent® process allows you to empty containers without leaving any residue, thanks to the continuous flow of air, and also allows for spray-free pouring with an even flow - meaning that dangerous sprays are also a thing of the past.

Other advantages of the plastic canisters include

  • optimum stackability,
  • precise dosing and
  • universal application thanks to its UN approval.

The chemical industry, for example, but also the Lebensmittelindustrie thus have the opportunity to safely and economically transport liquid hazardous materials.

Both the Ecovent® and the Standard Canisters with a filling capacity of 20 or 25 litres, are available in different weight classes and colours. For an individual solution, WERIT can also offer its customers tailor-made canister solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Why should I buy WERIT plastic canisters - what are the options for use?

Our canisters, in the standard or the Ecovent® option, offer our customers many practical, useful and economical advantages which make the storage and transport of liquid and paste raw materials easier and more secure. You will also profit from a smooth and guaranteed emptying (of residual material), the avoidance of dangerous sprays, and precise dosing.

The versatile applications are other advantages of the PE Canister, thanks to its hazardous goods approval and suitability for use with foodstuffs.

For example, you can use our canister solutions, amongst others, as water canisters, petrol canisters, or reserve canisters (for petrol or diesel), and even as foodstuff canisters - the 20- and 25-litre canisters have multiple uses and are very reliable.

Can I have plastic containers produced by WERIT with individual filling capacities?

Depending on the area of application, it is understandable that companies needs containers with different volumes or filling capacities (litres). We currently manufacture 20L and 25L canisters - two options often requested by the chemical and foodstuffs industries. If you need WERIT HDPE canisters with a different, individual filling capacity, please get in touch with us - we will be happy to consult you regarding a specific project.

What does the term “weight class” mean with regards to the WERIT Plastic Canister?

As a manufacturer of plastic canisters, we state the empty weight of a PE Canister with its weight class. Consequently, this gives the QA office of a company the opportunity to plan the best they can as regards safety, transport and storage, for example, which is particularly important with hazardous goods.
