Sturdy plastic pallets for secure beverage handling

Cabka-IPS will be presenting an extensive range of innovative plastic pallets at the drinktec 2013, the trade exhibition for the beverage and liquid food industry (16 to 20 September, Munich). These pallets have been specially developed for the beverage industry.

They include, for example, the BPP i9 (Beverage Pool Pallet), a solid and strong pallet made of recycled plastic with gas-assist low pressure injection technology. Internal cavities make the pallets not only particularly rigid, but also lighter. The BPP i9’s anti-slip strips and grommets ensure firm and safe handling of beverage containers. Extra wide openings between blocks make the pallets particularly easy to handle  and protect them from damage. The BPP i9 was developed for the Dutch Dranken Pallet Beheer (DPB) pallet pool, which is already successfully putting 400,000 of them to use. They are manufactured according to the “cradle to cradle” principle in which the pallet is recycled at the end of its life cycle.

Cabka-IPS will also be exhibiting its Keg S9 plastic pallet at the drinktec 2013. This has been specially developed to handle 50 litre kegs and is used by brewers such as Heineken or Anheuser-Busch InBev. Eight of these kegs fit on a single pallet. The Keg S9 is also manufactured using gas-assist technology, making it extremely sturdy and durable despite its low weight. This makes it ideal for transporting the heavy kegs. Key locators keep kegs in position, and rubber blocks on the bottom prevent them from slipping.
