The Scepter Military Water Canister (MWC) is fielded globally with numerous military forces, included the U.S. and Canadian forces. Scepter's line of Military Water Cans (MWC) complement the Scepter line of Military Fuel Cans (MFC) in quality, dimensions, performance and colours.
The large cap, the strap, the pouring spout and the breather cap are injection-moulded and fabricated from low-density polyethylene. The screw-cap is locked in the tightened position by means of a tab on the cap and strap assembly. Superimposed on the large cap is the small pouring spout, with its own cap, as well as the small breather cap assembly.
All of the MWC components are made from FDA approved materials. The material used to fabricate the canister body is high density polyethylene (HDPE – 2) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) is used to fabricate the cap and its components.
The Scepter MWCs are compliant to the US specification MIL-C-43613D and it specifies in section 3.2 that the materials used must meet the requirements of 21 CFR - Food and Drugs, and further, that the materials used must be HDPE for the body and LLDPE for the cap.
The Scepter MWCs also are compliant to the Canadian Forces specification CF-C-693, also states in section 3.2 that the materials used in the body, cap, and strap must be of food grade quality.
Scepter’s MWCs (Military Water Cans) are BPA (Bisphenol A) free.
BPA is a key building block organic ingredient in some polycarbonate and other plastic materials, but it is not an ingredient in either HDPE or LLDPE, the materials used in our MWCs.
The longevity of a MWC - being plastic - is 15 years and beyond, and during that period there is no risk of plastic leaching into the water. In principle, the water can should be for transport and short-term storage.
Each MWC has a unic, integrated single handle that, in the dark, prevents mistaking it for the three handled MFC.
Scepter's MWCs are supplied to military armed forces around the world as accessories on OEM vehicles and for OEM military auxiliary equipment and systems. Able to add unique inserts into the moulds to identify ownership.
