Chemical IBC Totes

IBC Totes Compatible with Chemical Operations and Systems

Standard Stackable Chemical Totes

Standard Stackable IBC Tanks are standard all plastic intermediate bulk containers. Capacities are offered from 120 gallons to 330 gallons. Standard stackable IBC totes are made from rotational-molded high density polyethylene eliminating seams as well as corrosion and maintenance concerns associated with inferior products or poly-composite tanks. The tanks are rated to 1.9 specific gravity for use with dense chemicals. The standard stackable IBC model is DOT/UN 31H2/Y approved and include UN markings permanently molded into the tank for extended legibility. The 1/2″ thick HDPE wall provides considerable product durability and long term service.

These IBC models feature a 6″ fill cap with security tether and seal, 2″ plastic vacuum vent, 2″ replaceable bung options for one or two bung locations, external fluid level markers, and a 2″ male camlock drain with sloped bottom for complete tank drainage. Standard stacking IBC totes have four way forklift and two way pallet jack access.

Standard model stackable IBCs are supported with a heavy duty base that provides over 30% more bottom tank protection (compared to other manufacturer’s products) and wider forklift channels to reduce damage probability. Standard model bases reduce overall tank height.

Premium Stacking IBCs offer additional tank fitting options and customizations not available to the standard model. Premium model bases include safety forklift channels.

Wide Mouth Stacking IBCs are available on request in 220 gallon, 275 gallon, and 330 gallon with an extra-large manway and lid measuring 18″ in width that improves tote cleanability and access.

Excalibur Chemical Totes

Excalibur IBC Tanks are thick-walled high density polyethylene totes meeting Title 49 CFR requirements and DOT/UN certifications for Packing Group II and Packing Group III hazardous, non-hazardous materials. Excalibur IBCs are available in 120 gallon and 330 gallon capacity rated to 1.35 SG and a 330 gallon capacity rated to 1.9 SG. They are rotationally molded, portable and reusable handling, storage, and transport tanks. As an alternative to caged IBC totes, Excalibur IBCs are a stronger, all plastic option with minimized maintenance concerns. They are widely used for both chemicals and food grade liquids.

Excalibur totes are manufactured from quality HDPE resin to a 1/2″ external wall thickness that is more than double the poly thickness of caged IBCs. This increased poly thickness promotes reusability as well as resistance and durability against corrosion, impacts, and punctures. Excalibur tanks have lengthy service lives and great reusability, making them cost effective, long term assets in material handling not subject to the same replacement costs of caged IBCs.

Excaliburs feature a 6″ heavy duty cap, an automatic pressure relief vent, and a 2″ bottom drain valve with quick disconnect. Excalibur IBCs have four way access channels for fork lift and pallet jack maneuverability and are stackable. The tanks feature stacking lugs to assist in stacking and promote stability.

Ultratainer Chemical IBCs

Ultratainer IBC Tanks are increasingly versatile, durable, and long service intermediate bulk containers. Ultratainers are available in 220 gallon, 275 gallon, and 330 gallon capacities. The totes are rated to 1.9 SG for handling up to 15.8 lbs/gal liquids. Ultratainers are roto molded from industrial strength HDPE resin and certified per FDA, ANSI / NSF 61, and Title 49 CFR requirements. They are UN/DOT approved for Packing Group II and III materials, making Ultratainers fully certified for the reusable handling of dense and corrosive chemicals, hazardous and non-hazardous, potable and food grade bulk cargo. Ultratainer IBCs report one of the longest and most respected industry service lives of modern intermediate bulk containers. They are heavily used across industries from manufacturers, producers, distributors, wholesalers, suppliers, and end users.

Ultratainer IBC containers feature a unique IBC architecture. They are constructed with a 1/2″ thick HDPE internal cylindrical storage tank molded within an integrated, supportive square frame, providing the structural benefits of each shape. These multipurpose, reusable and fully portable totes are completely molded from high density polyethylene into a single unit.

The cylindrical storage tank promotes tank strength, stability, and promotes cleaning and flushing of tank contents by providing a rounded, uniform sidewall. The square frame removes the handling difficulties and packaging inconsistencies of a cylindrical shape by retaining the cubical design expectation of an IBC. This cubical shape is significantly easier to maneuver, ship, stack, and store. The square frame extends above the tank’s top fittings to serve as a top protector against damages.

The Ultratainer IBC features a 6″ fill cap with security tether, two replaceable 2″ bungs, and external molded-in gallonage markers. Full drainage is supported by the Ultratainer’s domed tank bottom and 2″ ball drain valve with camlock.

Custom options for Ultratainers include sanitary valves and fittings, cleaning head assemblages, retractable top lifting lugs, and anti-teeter bars. All Ultratainers feature four way access channels for forklifts and pallet jacks. Ultratainer IBCs are available in standard, heavy weight, and wide mouth models. Heavy weight models are constructed to withstand pressures up to 62 psi (428 KPa) for greater pressure handling requirements and are available on request.

Wide Mouth Ultratainer

Wide Mouth Ultratainer IBCs retain the features of standard Ultratainer IBC tanks but are manufactured with a 20″ top opening and 22″ threaded cap and gasket for quick and easy access, handling, and tightening. The extra large tank opening provides greater access to the tote interior for cleaning, drying, mixing, and inspections.

Megatainer Chemical Containers

Megatainer IBC Tanks offer the industry’s largest capacity for portable, reusable, and versatile HDPE IBC totes. Megatainers have a 550 gallon capacity and 1.9 specific gravity rating to provide a 60% greater payload capacity compared to 330 gallon poly totes. The Megatainer IBC is engineered to promote productivity and decrease packing and shipping costs through effective utilization of product weight, handling capabilities, and valuable cargo space.

Megatainer IBCs are fabricated from quality virgin HDPE resin that meets FDA, ANSI / NSF Standard 61 requirements for food grade and potable water use and Title 49 CFR as UN/DOT freight for non-hazardous and hazardous Packing Group II and Packing Group III materials. They are rotationally molded to 1/2″ thick structural walls with integrated support ribs, making Megatainer IBCs suitable for numerous and extensive reuse in the handling, transport, and storage of harsh corrosives, sensitive products, and inert commodities.

Megatainers feature a low profile, horizontal design that:

  1. Improves access to tank top and bottom ports, and;
  2. Promotes product filling and dispensing.

Megatainer IBCs feature a 6.5″ fill cap with a security tether, one 2″ replaceable threaded bung, a 2″ full port drain valve and coupler, and EPDM gaskets as standard. The IBCs feature stacking alignment lugs for secure stacking in storage and gravity fill applications and can be used with other IBC models.
