Everything at a glance!

Want positive traceability of your kegs as well as improved quality assurance? Looking for solutions to improve the scheduling and monitoring of your kegs’ maintenance and service intervals? BLEFA’s keg management services not only cover perfect traceability for your stainless steel kegs and improved quality performance. 

BLEFA stainless steel kegs also come with a 2D barcode as standard and you can also equip them with a low-frequency (LF) tag or an ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID tag. The benefit of UHF beyond what lasered codes offer is that they can capture a full stack of kegs on a forklift all in one go. The real strength of UHF tags, therefore, lies especially in reverse logistics, i.e. when distributors return kegs and you quickly need to identify which of the kegs really belong to you and for how many kegs you are prepared to pay deposit refunds. 

The data you gather helps you record the details of your entire keg fleet precisely, optimize turnaround times, and compile accurate maintenance schedules. Simple, practical, and clear!


We work with BLEFA quality stickers based on 2D matrix codes as the basis for our worker self-monitoring in our production process. At the end of the production process, we irrevocably laser these onto the top dome of our kegs. These laser codes are the basis for our 30-year warranty and the basis for the traceability of your keg fleet. We are also happy to apply customised serial numbers for you.
