Oil & Gas IBC Totes

Information for Oil & Gas IBC Totes


IBCs for oil and gas applications have been engineered to withstand the corrosive chemicals and demanding environments accompanying petrochemical industry uses and in bulk capacities ranging from 110 to 550 gallons, $179 to $3,600 USD. For oil and gas applications, IBC Tanks provides top quality, American-crafted IBC containers fabricated from:

IBC Tanks’ petrochemical, energy sector containers have been engineered for successful, long term, and reusable operation across their many use applications. They are capable of handling petrochemical market acids and alkalis as well as salts and organic chemicals.

Oil & Gas IBC Manufacturing and Standards

We provide metal and polyethylene containers in volume from 110 to 550 gallon capacity. Plastic IBCs are manufactured for 1.9 SG fluids; a 1.35 SG model option is offered. Oil and gas intermediate bulk containers have been DOT / UN designed, manufactured, and permitted for hazardous and non-hazardous PGII and PGIII materials.

All portable containers meet or exceed IBC Title 49 CFR and IMDG requirements for domestic and offshore operations and transports. Design labels include UN31HA/Y, UN31H/Y, UN31A/Y. Carbon and stainless steel metal IBCs are the only IBCs NFPA Section 30 certified and UL 142 approved for the long-term storage of combustible and flammable materials.

Oil & Gas IBC Characteristics

Petrochemical IBC totes are consistent and reliable packaging containers engineered to be appropriate for wide-scale use. IBCs safeguard payloads against human and machine-based impact as well as environmental elements such as water, fresh and salt, heat, air, dust, and other potentially contaminating particulates.

IBC materials and design produce heavy duty containers that become effective and essential company assets along logistic streams. Oil and gas IBCs are box-shaped with integrated pallet bases. This design allows for increased product handling, organization, and mobility.

IBCs’ base dimensions approximate around standard, international pallet sizes for acceptability. IBCs’ bulk volume capacities allow for more material to be moved more easily when compared against 55 gallon drums. A standard IBC maintains a footprint equal to a 4-drum pallet but with significantly more functionality.

Overall IBC engineering promotes simpler product filling and dispensing as well as loading, stacking, storing, and shipping of product containers. General operation spills, overflow, and waste are reduced due to the structure of the IBC tank, material inlets, and outlets. IBCs can be stacked for storage organization, gravity-feed operations, and can be integrated with various other systems through use of fittings, plumbing, and other IBC components. IBC totes have been engineered to withstand general application stresses, which includes internal pressure. Tanks feature self-operating reliefs to vent the system when it nears 0.25 PSIG.

IBCTanks provides the following selection of IBC containers that have been certified and approved for oil and gas-based applications.

Specifications: High Density Polyethylene Oil and Gas IBC Tanks

Our high density polyethylene (HDPE) IBC tote containers are fabricated from food grade, virgin resin that is FDA approved, BPA free, ANSI / NSF 61 certified, and manufactured with UV inhibitors to allow extended outdoor use and sun exposure.

HDPE IBC tanks are light weight, less expensive alternatives to stainless and carbon steel containers but may not afford the same extensive service life as metal IBCs. They are provided in volume capacities ranging from 120 gallons to as high as 550 gallons with Megatainer IBCs, the largest poly tote in the industry.
