New range of Saeplast boxes

Alison Handling Alison Handling has taken over GW Containers and is now offering a new range of Sæplast tubs

Alison Handling, Europe’s largest independent stockist of plastic containers, continues to support the fishing industry with its new range of Sæplast boxes following its recent acquisition of GW Containers.

The Sæplast 405  and 705 litre depuration and wet storage containers are constructed from double-walled food-grade polyethylene filled with polyurethane, are the only insulated containers of their kind on the market today. They are suitable for the storage and purification of live mussels, oysters, clams and other shellfish.

“We already have considerable knowledge of the shellfish industry with our prawn trays, and these new products are a great addition to Alison Handling and GW Containers range,” said Alison Dearden, director at Alison Handling.

The tub’s design ensures that an even flow of water is maintained through it, resulting in the optimum oxygenation of each individual shellfish. It also includes a number of technical features including an integrated grid waste separator and water circulation system designed to achieve maximum flow and water renewal. Like all Sæplast tubs and containers, they are ergonomically designed for maximum strength, ease of handling, stacking, and optimum hygiene.

They are designed so that they stack perfectly together. Lateral support for the grid is provided along the entire interior perimeter of the box, while corners are rounded for easy wash-down. Easily repaired if damaged, these Sæplast tubs come with a host of built-in safety features, including integrated water channels, fast release plugs for rapid emptying, and emergency air inlet plugs for use in the event of a failure in water flow. And as both tubs operate without the need for any external pipe or drain connections, they can be used in both closed and open-circuit systems.
