IBC Engineering and Applications

 

Intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) have the standard transport pallet form and easily integrated rectangular footprints that provide multidirectional maneuverability. IBC containers can have a two-way, three-way, or four-way forklift and pallet jack access. IBCs are built with a base that maintains its footprint to a standard pallet width for acceptance, versatility, and integration. Designed for industrial use as an advanced liquid handling tank, the IBC has a wide range of sizes with capacities from 120 gallons up to 550 gallons.

Some major benefits of intermediate bulk containers, IBC totes, are they require minimal maintenance and are highly durable. They are generally intended to store bulk liquids, chemicals included, and can also be used as water storage. They are efficient containers for saving space while shipping as each container can stack on top of another and saves space.

Most industries have specific intermediate bulk container requirements; namely, the food industry requires all IBC totes to be food-grade to ensure that the materials within the container do not get contaminated by the container itself. Additionally, companies that transport and store combustible or hazardous liquids must follow the combustible liquids code and hazardous material guide to ensure safety.

 

Are all IBC totes the same size?

 

No, besides the obvious difference of capacity between IBC totes, they can also have different dimensions based on the materials they are made from. For example, in 450-gallon intermediate bulk containers, the two most common materials for them to be made from are stainless steel and carbon steel, each of which has differing dimensions from each other.

What is the biggest IBC tote?

 

The largest pre-manufactured size of intermediate bulk containers is 550 gallons. However, the sizes can range drastically from 120 gallons to 550 gallons, even more, if it is a custom size or shape that is requested.

 

What are IBC tote dimensions?

 

A 450-gallon stainless steel IBC has different dimensions than a 450-gallon carbon steel IBC tote, you can see the variations between the two below.
