These IBC totes and IBC tanks are designed to last under even harsh environmental conditions with stainless steel or HDPE construction and UV stabilizers.

Moreover, these totes conveniently feature gallon indicators, making tracking your contents easier. And if you're interested in transferring material out of this unit, many adapters on the market will allow you to transfer your products out of these IBC totes.

With such great versatility, these intermediate bulk containers can hold many different liquids or powders. Depending on the material these IBC totes and IBC tanks are made of, they may even be able to hold hazardous and non-hazardous materials.
