Types of Schaefer Sanke Kegs We Offer

Although Schaefer offers multiple types of sanke kegs for various needs, there are three main ones designed for storing and dispensing beer.

  • SUDEX kegs

A classic stainless-steel keg made of 304 steel, this is what you’d expect from a beer keg: strong body, durable top and chime to withstand being dropped, and a comfort grip handle for easier transportation. These kegs are plasma-jet welded, which makes them very strong and durable.

We offer Schaefer SUDEX kegs in 3 sizes - 50-liter, 30-liter, and 20-liter. All sizes are stackable and equipped with US Sankey D-type coupler fitting.

  • ECO kegs

An innovation in keg design, ECO kegs are advantageous as being Schaefer’s most economical style of keg. Unlike the SUDEX model, they are not 100% stainless steel, as the top and bottom chimes are made of polypropylene.

The chimes are easily replaceable, come in a variety of colours and are lightweight, which makes ECO kegs great not only for beer but also wine and soft drinks. Because each keg is lighter overall, they can help reduce the total weight of a packed skid providing both a cost effective and eco-friendly advantage. Coming in two major varieties (50-liter and 20-liter), these kegs are stackable and feature a D fitting.

  • PLUS kegs

PLUS kegs come encased in polyurethane, which offers a distinctive look and makes them extremely robust. A variety of colours with a logo added on make these kegs stand out from the rest. Because of the PU-jacket, PLUS kegs are quieter and have a shock absorbency feature to offer an optimal storage solution for beer, wine or cider.
