Newly manufactured, 275 gallon volume composite IBC containers are one of the most commonly used IBC models, often selected for their increased capacity, single pallet size footprint, and the strength and material, chemical compatibility of the tote’s construction materials. Composite IBC totes have internal tanks manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and that are contained by a galvanized steel protective cage. The polyethylene liner is blow-mold fabricated from virgin HDPE resin that is FDA food grade, BPA free, and UV stabilized. The IBC is ANSI / NSF 61 certified approved for potable water.
275 gallon poly IBC totes have been engineered according to CFR Title 49 IBC manufacturing and design tests for UN/DOT 31HA1/Y permit labeling. Poly tote UN/DOT labels certify IBCs for the handling and transport of non hazardous or hazardous packing group II and III liquid commodities. Examples include chemicals, solution mixtures, paints, coatings, dyes, process waste, greases, oils, lubricants, intermediates. They can also be used with compatible powders and granulated substances but are not UN/DOT labeled for solid commodities.
Poly IBC totes are durable, reusable, material transport and handling containers with resistance to corrosion, impacts, and elemental exposure such as rain, rust, heat, and dust. 275 gallon caged totes are versatile IBCs suitable for many work use scenarios. Example industries that use poly totes include agriculture, construction, road work, water conveyance and transport, rainwater applications, petrochemical materials, food and beverage, dyes and flavors, coatings and paints, chemical synthesis, waste management, manufacturing, and product/waste treatment.
New 275 gallon poly IBCs are fabricated to a nominal tank thickness rated for dense fluid solutions up to 1.9 specific gravity. Size dimensions for 275 gallon IBC totes are 48” L x 40” W x 46″ H, near common pallet measurements. Poly tote models feature a 6” vented, threaded screw cap inlet and a 2” NPT male quick connect ball valve. Composite IBCs feature 4-way directional access channels for increased maneuverability via pallet jacks and forklifts. Their cubical engineering promotes IBC integration, stacking, packing and organization. Single 275 gallon poly totes have volumes equal to five standard 55 gallon drums, maximizing space and handling within operations.
