550-Gallon IBC Totes | Materials and Applications


IBC Tanks offers the ideal combination of cost-effectiveness, convenience, and security – offering a full range of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and metal alloy (carbon and/or stainless steel) intermediate bulk containers in capacities of up to 550 gallons. At this size, our IBC tanks are among the most significant HDPE models available for UN/DOT shipping permits & labels - making them perfect for transporting hazardous or non-hazardous PGII & III materials safely and securely.

Megatainers are ideally suited to industrial applications with harsh chemicals and milder products - ensuring you get unbeatable performance every time.

The most common use for intermediate bulk containers or IBC containers is to store and transport bulk liquids. These industries, from food, agriculture, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, and others, depend heavily on these containers. This has also created healthy competition on the market today for companies to create the most durable and efficient containers. They must follow standards in the hazardous material guide and combustible liquids code to ensure that they can store and transport materials safely.


Are all IBC totes the same size? | What is the largest IBC tote tank?


IBC totes can vary significantly in size. They can also differ significantly in the materials that they are made of Regarding 550-gallon IBC totes, the largest size commonly available, they are generally made of two different materials. Other materials that IBC totes can be made of though most commonly, are polyethylene or stainless steel. A stainless steel intermediate bulk container (stainless steel IBC) is an advanced liquid handling tank that allows companies to safely store hazardous or flammable liquids and transport materials. In contrast, a polyethylene intermediate bulk container is better for water storage and transportation of non-flammable liquids and chemicals.

Especially when using a large amount of the same size as intermediate bulk containers, they perform exceptionally well with a stackable method. Stacking these totes on top of each other allows you to save on space for storage or transportation. Their stacking capability varies depending on if they are full or empty. Companies may also need to meet different intermediate bulk container requirements based on their specific applications.
