Our safety containers are made of rust-free stainless steel and are used in different areas: for in-plant use in industrial companies, as laboratory containers in labs, research institutes and universities, as storage containers for safe storage of hazardous other or dangerous goods (e.g. inflammable, toxic, corrosive) or as transportation containers for transportation of hazardous goods on public traffic routes.

All our safety containers and funnels are made of high-quality stainless steel, which is the material with the highest chemical resistance. This means that the containers will not corrode during correct handling (rustfree, non-corrosive). The gaskets of all our containers are made of plastics (mostly PTFE). These types of plastics also offer maximum chemical resistance in the area of synthetics. Roetzmeier Safety Containers are reusable containers. Besides cost savings over time (one-way packagings are more expensive in the medium term) you also protect the environment (environmental protection / ecology / pollution control) and contribute to the efficient use of resources.

Typical mediums that are filled into our containers are flammable, toxic or corrosive materials (e.g. solvents, acids or other chemicals). The containers are protected by flame traps and pressure control valves against infiltration of fire and explosion, providing a safe and explosion-resistant storage for your flammable materials in the event of a fire. Roetzmeier Safety Containers are completely produced in Germany (Made in Germany) and are an example for excellent German engineering, relying on both, high-quality materials and high quality standards in the manufacturing process.

Our product portfolio consists of five different product groups:

  • Safety cans: safety cans for in-plant use, designed for handling of smaller quantities (1 to 5 liters) - we offer metering cans (with precise metering device) and storage/screw cans (with screw cap), each of them in laboratory edition (polished surface) and industrial edition (unpolished)
  • Safety canisters: safety canister for in-plant use, designed for handling of medium quantities (5 to 20 liters) - we offer metering canisters (with self-closing metering device), storage/screw canisters (with screw cap) and tap canisters (with self-closing tap)
  • Safety barrels: for in-plant use, designed for handling of bigger quantities (10 to 50 resp. 200 liters) - smaller barrels are availabe with self-closing metering device, all others have a screw cap or a self-closing tap, optionally with content level indicator
  • Safety transportation containers: safety containers for UN-transports of dangerous goods on public traffic routes - these containers do have a certificate allowance (homologation) of the "Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung und -forschung" (BAM, responsible German authority), transportation containers are available in different sizes
  • Funnels: we offer stainless steel funnels for safe filling - safety funnels (screwed onto the container, flame trap, overfill protection, grounding, closure) and plug-in funnels
