Brewery clamps down on kegs

Monday, 07 September, 2020 | Supplied by: B&B Attachments Ltd

Camerons Brewery is an independent brewer in the north-east of England, with a brewery capacity of 1.5 million hectolitres and an estate of 75 houses.

To ensure its supply chain operations are as safe and productive as possible, the brewer equipped its fleet of four Jungheinrich trucks with Keg Clamp attachments supplied by B&B Attachments. Each attachment is capable of handling up to 18 kegs at a time. 

Richard Forster, Logistics Manager at Camerons Brewery, said the Keg Clamps provided an effective solution for improving productivity when it comes to product handling.

The attachments enable secure clamping of kegs and casks and ensure ease of movement of both full and empty barrels around the yard and production facility. They provide the driver with good visibility when approaching the load, while also increasing driver confidence and ensuring safe and secure handling on-site.

The kegs are securely clamped between the three tines of the attachment. The tines include a special rubber insert to prevent keg slippage and to secure any slightly smaller rogue kegs which may be included in the overall stack. A vertically adjustable, articulating load stabilising frame moves downwards and holds the keg stack securely in place.

The product’s standard features include: low profile; fast-moving keg pack stabilisers; a long-lasting rubber pad; wear indicators on tines; and end-of-stroke cushioning on side shift movement.
