330 gallon new caged IBC containers are one of the most commonly used IBC models, often selected for their increased capacity, their single pallet size footprint, and the strength and compatibility of the tote’s construction materials. Composite IBC totes feature an internal tank manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and that is containerized and supported by a galvanized steel protective cage. The polyethylene tank is blow-mold fabricated from select virgin HDPE resin that is FDA certified food grade, ANSI / NSF 61 certified, BPA free, UV stabilized, and approved for potable water and consumable-based cargo.
330 gallon poly IBC totes are engineered per CFR Title 49 regulations and must undergo manufacturing and design tests for UN/DOT permit labeling. UN/DOT labels approve 330 gallon IBCs for handling and transporting non hazardous, hazardous solid to liquid commodities belonging to packing group II and III; with some examples including: chemicals, solutions, sand, paints, coatings, dyes, process waste, greases, oils, lubricants, intermediates, powders, and granulated substances.
New 330 gallon poly IBCs have been fabricated to nominal tank thicknesses approving them for dense liquids up to 1.9 specific gravity ratings. HDPE poly IBCs are very durable, potentially reusable, transport handling containers that feature an increased resistance against corrosion, impacts, punctures, and tears, as well as elemental exposure, such as rain, rust, heat, and dust. 330 gallon caged totes engineering design as well as their large capacity makes them versatile IBCs well-suited for many work use scenarios. Some common use scenarios for 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.
330 gallon IBC totes measure 48”L x 40”W, near common pallet size dimensions. These composite IBCs have 4-way movement channels for multi-directional mobility by equipment such as pallet jacks and forklifts. The IBC’s engineered shape and volume capacity promotes handling, organizing, work flow integration, and transport. A single 330 gallon poly tote has a volume equal to six 55 gallon shipping drums, effectively saving cargo space and maximizing volume. Poly caged totes have 6” vented, threaded screw cap inlet ports and 2” polypropylene discharge ball valves with male quick disconnect couplers.
