SpRingLatch Pail Closure Delivers Innovation and Easy Implementation

Trivium’s patented SpRingLatch, a pail closure and re-closure system for paint, chemical and coating filling lines, was recognised at the Canmaker awards for its innovative design. It provides an automated and cost-effective alternative to the manual closing process required when using standard ring-latch closures.

The design automatically expands the ring latch when vertical pressure is applied to the lid, and securely fixes the lid onto the container. This simple, ingenious manoeuvre seals the lid and enables the pail to be effortlessly and securely opened and re-closed as required. Best of all, SpRingLatch can be immediately fitted to the existing line, delivering a very low-cost solution with an attractive return.

SpRingLatch is UN qualifieds for both 230mm and 286mm diameter pails as suitable for the filling of hazardous packaged materials.

“SpRing Latch is just the kind of development we were waiting for,” said Wilhelm Althuber, Global Spend Area Main Buyer for Consumer Packaging at Akzo Nobel,  “With a very simple, low investment cost solution, we were able to implement SpRing Latch straight away at filling lines and it has made an immediate impact.”
