Keen Newport creators of the Newport lighter refill system

Whether for private label clients or for the world leading Newport System the same exacting standards of manufacture apply.

Once in the can, the finished product when expelled has a maximum of one non-volatile impurity in every 20,000 parts.

Keen World Marketing doesn’t need to fill its factories with nine or more long filters to create a reduced impurity butane. This standard was set by the company in 1983, when Newport was exclusively redeveloped as the only butane gas pure enough to refill windproof lighters. It is now recognised as essential for the safe performance of an expanding number of personal, household and industrial butane powered products. Newport System products are generally recognised as the ultimate near zero impurity refills.
