What is an IBC made off?
IBC stands for Intermediate Bulk Container. IBCs are formed of a plastic tank made of HDPE (high density polyethylene) enclosed in a transparent steel frame on a steel, plastic or wooden pallet with a 150 mm or 225 mm filler cap on the top and a drain tap with a 2” or 3” connector on the bottom.
With its shape and dimensions, the 1000-litre IBC takes up the same space as 1 pallet with four 200-litre drums, but can hold up to 20% more fluid and can be stacked 2 high in a shipping container.
An IBC is one of the newer forms of industrial packaging with the great advantage of more volume in the same square meter. A standard IBC can hold 1000 litres. In our assortment you can also find IBCs of 250, 300, 600 and 800 litres.
