Used IBC totes are reinforced with a wrap-resistant tubular steel jacket, and internal corner guards to protect the inner container. Filling is done quickly and efficiently with a 2” valve and threaded lid.
Used IBC totes are re-usable industrial containers that can provide easy transportation and storage of liquids, granulated substances (e.g. chemicals, food ingredients, solvents, pharmaceuticals, etc.) when compared to other types of containers or barrels. Most IBC or intermediate bulk containers are stackable because they are mounted on a pallet that is designed to be moved by a forklift.
The most common size is 275 gallons. The volume range is situated between drums and tanks. IBC’s are made from resins typically polyethylene housed within a tubular galvanized iron cage that is attached to a pallet. Most have a built-in tap (valve, spigot, or faucet) at the base of the container to which hoses can be attached or poured out of into small containers. Features include: tote or tank can be used for transporting liquid or granulate, re-usable, can be stacked with a forklift and most have a built in valve, spigot, or faucet for emptying.
