IBCs by Application

Find your IBCs by application, job or work type. Intermediate bulk containers (known as IBCs, IBC totes, IBC tanks or pallet tanks) are ideally selected for use by the intended work case and IBC model. IBCs are made from either rigid HDPE plastic, stainless steel metal, carbon steel metal, or the common composite steel and plastic caged tote. These different material types are used to make different IBC models and styles that are more effective and well suited for some applications over others.

Available pallet tanks come in Caged, Standard, Premium, Excalibur, Ultratainer, Wide Mouth, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Supertainer, and Megatainer tote model types. Gallon volume capacities range from 110 gallons up to 550 gallons. The 275 gallon and 330 gallon IBC totes are the most commonly used IBC sizes. IBC lids are 6″, 6.5″, 7″, 18″, 20″ and 22 1/2″ in size. Standard drain ports are 2 inch outlet ball valves with various IBC tote valves and couplers available for replacement or custom order requests. Individual IBC tote specifications vary by the select IBC model type.

The best IBC tote type for your individual use will best match its job by verifying and ensuring:

    • Compatibility with the chemical or cargo type
    • Total gallon volume needed
    • Possible environmental or chemical corrosion concerns
    • Likelihood of physical damage or other workplace hazards
    • Extent of expected weather exposure
    • Expected reusability of the IBC container
    • IBC total stacking compatibility
    • Width of lid or mouth opening
    • IBC height and pallet base dimensions
    • 2 way, 3 way or 4 way forklift accessibility
