The「magic bottle」from Japan with an incredible heat and cold retention!

Story

Wouldn’t that be a high capacity bottle to transport beverages? 

On camping trips where it is often needed to carry a large amount of luggage, having one large-capacity bottle that you can share with family and friends can be a lifesaver. A thermos bottle that is easy to carry, sturdy and has a good hot and cold performance, the SUS TANK is all of these and more!




ABOUT US

Tsubame in the Niigata Prefecture, known worldwide as “Tsubame Sanjo”, is Japan’s leading metalworking town. This is where we established ourselves in 1965. In this manufacturing town, we fostered metal processing techniques by producing various kitchenware such as stainless steel bowls and trays, but also “magic bottles”.

“Magic bottle” is another name for a thermos bottle, a recipient (bottle or flask) that can keep liquids warm or cool for a prolonged time by creating a thermal insulation layer between the double walls of its structure.

 The products we manufacture clear the Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) in terms of heat and cold insulation performance and safety standards. In 2003, we succeeded in developing the world’s first insulated tumbler with a double titanium wall structure and we have the know-how to make titanium insulated products.


HISTORY

Around 1983, we started exporting a 1.5 liter version of our magic bottle to countries in the Middle East where, at the time, it was difficult to secure drinking water outdoors. Since then, we have continued to strive to improve the quality and develop new sizes by listening to local opinions and “Odajima”, the name of our company at the time of its founding, is still firmly supported. SUS TANK is a product born from a steady commitment to the craft and an artisanal spirit always aiming for the highest quality.

The high-capacity SUS TANK is very easy to carry because of the care put into its handle.  The grip being close to the center of gravity makes it easy to hold, while the way the handle is fixed prevents the container from shaking while being carried. 

The SUS TANK is designed to be safe and stable even when placed sideways, which is a rare feature among ordinary thermos bottles. Ordinarily, there is a risk in using this type of bottle sideways. The mouth, where the inner and outer cylinders of the double structure meet, requires high strength and durability to handle the weight of beverages, ice and the vibrations during the transport. But using the knowledge and techniques acquired from years of producing thermos bottles, we were able to make this possible.

And to make it even easier, an adjustable shoulder strap is also included! 

You can use both hands freely while carrying the SUS TANK, so that you won’t have any problem carrying other luggages simultaneously. It has been designed specifically to be easy to use when camping.


Our product passes the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) for thermos bottles, which requires a heat retention capacity to hold a drink at more than 80℃ (176°F) after 6 hours in the bottle.

After testing the temperature changes happening during 12 hours in the SUS TANK for hot water at 95℃ (203°F) and cold water at 4℃ (39°F), we could prove the excellent performance of the vacuum insulation for both heat and cold retention.



The SUS TANK boasts a strong powder coating that is hard to peel off and protects the stainless steel body of the bottle from the harsh conditions of the outdoor environment.


Differences between powder coating and acrylic solvent coating



 This coating is thicker than a solvent-based coating, does not easily come off and is resistant to impacts! Moreover, the slightly rough and uneven texture of the surface makes eventual scratches much less noticeable.


It can of course be used for camping and outdoor scenes, but its large capacity also makes it useful in various other situations!

CASE.1 | As an icebox

You can insert ice through the large 74mm (2.9inch) mouth of the bottle to ice after sport or club activities! Its amazing cold insulation will prove useful to the sports lovers!


CASE.2|As a tabletop drink container

It can of course be used at home as a large-capacity pot that will let you enjoy hot coffee and tea all day long!

CASE.3 | As a simple cooking utensil

The SUS TANK can also be used for simple cooking that does not require the use of a heat source. To enjoy freshly boiled pasta at the campsite, just put the whole pasta in the SUS TANK filled with boiling water! The attached inner cup and lid can be used not only as a large cup but also as a plate, hopefully reducing your luggage.

CASE.4|As a water stock for disasters and emergencies

Water shortage can become a major problem in the event of a disaster, as it is needed not only for drinking but also for various daily needs such as washing and toileting. In the event of a water outage, it is imperative to stock water in a container that can be properly closed. Moreover, storing water away from direct sunlight can prevent quality deterioration.

CASE.5|As a companion on your day off picnic

Using SUS TANK for everyday outings, it’s also reducing the use of disposable containers like plastic bottles, and the generation of garbage. The use of small capacity plastic bottles often leads to the purchase of more plastic bottles as they cannot hold enough beverage. With the SUS TANK, let’s take actions toward becoming a more sustainable society!

STK-3000

Actual capacity: 3.0 liters     Size: 187 x 145 x 371 mm     Product weight (approx.): 2.0 kg

Heat retention: 84 ° C or higher (6 hours) / Cold retention: 7.8 ° C or less (6 hours)


STK-4000

Actual capacity: 4.0 liters     Size: 190 x 143 x 455 mm     Product weight (approx.): 2.8 kg

Heat retention: 86 ° C or higher (6 hours) / Cold retention: 7.4 ° C or less (6 hours)


※What is the heat retention (cold retention) about ? It is the temperature of the hot water (cold water) after spending 6 hours in the SUS TANK at an initial temperature of 95℃/203°F (4℃/39°F) ±1℃ with the lid on, in a room at a constant temperature of 20℃ ±2℃ (68°F).

Body, lid (outside), stopper spring: SUS304 stainless steel

Coating: Polyester resin coating

Stopper, lid (inside), cup (white), mouth metal: polypropylene

Handle: STK-3000 / Polypropylene STK-4000 / ABS resin

Valve packing, shoulder fixture, adjuster: Polyacetal

Stopper Gasket: Silicon resin / Shoulder strap: Nylon / Shoulder pad: Elastomer


Each product comes with a built-in cup and a matching shoulder strap.


The red button at the center of the stopper is the open / close button. Just press the button and tilt the bottle to pour the beverage. When you’re finished pouring, press the red button again to close. When opening and closing, make sure to put or hold the bottle vertically in a stable manner.

Separate the main body, lid, built-in cup, stopper and stopper gasket, and wash gently using a mild tableware detergent and a soft sponge. (When washing the inside of the bottle, it is convenient to use a sponge equipped with a handle or detergent for stainless steel bottles.)

  • When cleaning the stopper, press the button to open it and let the water flow from the spout. After cleaning, lightly shake to drain the remaining water before putting it back on the bottle.
  • For a thorough cleaning, dissolve about 1% of sodium sesquicarbonate in lukewarm water inside the bottle and let it soak for about 6 hours. Then, wash with a neutral detergent for tableware.

We manufacture magic bottles in Japan but also produce and sell insulated titanium tumblers and have a history of manufacturing various vacuum insulated products.

There exist a lot of small size magic bottles on the market already, but they are meant for personal use. We want to respond to the demand for thermos bottles that can be shared by a group of people spending time together, including during outdoor activities. And so we released this project to answer every criteria of capacity, easy-to-carry shape, and resistance to outdoor use.


We will keep producing high-quality products that can be used for a long time, and will proceed to collect stainless steel bottles that are no longer needed at home.


Group company Kosei Co.,Ltd.

Our group was founded in the metal recycling business. When the metal processing industry began to flourish in Tsubame, Japan, there was no place for waste materials, and iron scraps were naturally thrown away on the roadside. We started by collecting those iron scraps one by one and sorting them by type in order to sell them. Even as there was no word for recycling at the time, we proceeded to sort metals by composition, process them into a recyclable shape, and transport them by lot. By doing this, we built a recycling system, and the city of Tsubame gradually became more beautiful. As Kosei Co.,Ltd. expanded, the metal processing business of SUS was born and the current product manufacturing and brand development were established.
