Intermediate bulk Containers (IBCs) are generally designed and manufactured to meet strict safety standards for the storage and transportation of liquids, chemicals, and other materials. However, the safety of IBC tanks depends on various factors, including the design, construction, material compatibility, handling, and usage.

Here are some considerations for ensuring the safety of IBC tanks:

Material Compatibility: Ensure that the material used to construct the IBC is compatible with the substance it will contain. Different chemicals or liquids may react with certain materials, leading to safety hazards.

    Design and Construction: IBCs are available in various designs and materials, such as plastic, metal, or a combination of both. It’s essential to choose an IBC that meets the specific requirements of the substance being stored or transported.

      Labeling and Documentation: Properly label IBCs with the correct information about the contents, handling instructions, and any potential hazards. Follow all relevant safety guidelines and regulations.

        Handling and Transportation: Use appropriate handling and transportation methods, such as using compatible pallets, securing IBCs during transit, and following proper lifting procedures. Ensure that the IBC is not damaged during handling.

          Inspection and Maintenance: Regularly inspect IBCs for signs of damage, wear, or corrosion. Any damaged or compromised IBCs should be taken out of service and replaced. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance.

            Compliance with Regulations: Ensure that the IBCs meet or exceed relevant safety regulations and standards set by local authorities and international organizations.

            Training and Education: Provide training to personnel involved in the handling, filling, and transportation of IBCs. Make sure they are aware of safety protocols and proper procedures.

            It’s important to note that IBCs are generally considered safe when used according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and in compliance with applicable regulations. Always follow best practices for the specific type of IBC and material being stored to minimize the risk of accidents and ensure the safety of both personnel and the environment.

            Precautions for IBC adapters

            The IBC tank is composed of an inner container and a metal frame. The inner container is blow-molded with high-molecular-weight high-density polyethylene, which has high strength, corrosion resistance and good hygiene. Plus the external metal frame is more secure and reliable. The product structure is reasonable, firm, and strong, can be directly loaded and unloaded by forklift, and can be stacked and stored. The upper filling port is equipped with a blind cover or a breathing valve threaded cover, and the lower discharge port is equipped with a ball valve, which can discharge materials safely, quickly, and cleanly. Generally, the IBC tank can be used for multiple turnovers, saving energy and being conducive to environmental protection.

            1. The role of IBC tank

            IBC tanks can contain Class II and III dangerous goods. The maximum liquid density for Class II dangerous goods is 1.5g/cm3, and the liquid density for Class III dangerous goods is 1.8g/cm3.

            2. IBC tank filling and storage

            1) When using a IBC tank, first open the filling port cover, and then fill in the liquid from the filling port at the top. Tighten all seals before handling.

            2) The maximum filling volume of this container is 1000 liters.

            3)Pay attention to awning storage and avoid exposure to the sun when using. The maximum operating temperature (packaging, storage, transportation, unloading, and cleaning, etc.) is 70°C. The minimum storage temperature is -40°C.

            IBC adapters

            3. Automatic cleaning of IBC tanks

            Since the IBC tank is not a one-time-use product, in order to save resources and protect the environment, the general IBC tank needs to be used multiple times. Since the liquid is prone to deposition, it is necessary to use the ton barrel to hold another liquid. The inner and outer walls are cleaned, and the clean container can guarantee product quality. In the past, manual cleaning was mostly used. The operation of manual cleaning is simple, but the cleaning efficiency is slow and labor-intensive. If the ton barrels contain dangerous chemicals, manual cleaning has certain safety hazards.

            With the continuous advancement of science and technology, the degree of automation of various equipment is gradually improving, and the field of industrial cleaning is no exception. The improvement of industrial cleaning mechanization and automation greatly simplifies the cleaning process. According to the characteristics and cleaning requirements of IBC ton barrels, Degaojie has developed a pass-through ton barrel automatic cleaning line, which reduces labor intensity and improves cleaning quality. One square barrel can be cleaned every 4 to 8 minutes (depending on the degree of dirt).


            4.IBC adapters

            When it comes to IBC, we have to mention the joint. IBC joints are widely used in IBC valves and other pipe fittings to change the diameter and connect pipes of different diameters.

            When using connectors, the following should be noted:

            1) Select the corresponding size of the joint, some joints are threaded, some are quick connected, some are external thread, and some are internal thread

            2) Choose sturdy and durable materials that are resistant to acid and alkali corrosion, such as PP or PE pure raw materials, to prolong the service life.

            3) Sometimes it is necessary to combine multiple joints to achieve the effect of switching. At this time, it is necessary to select the appropriate size and combine multiple sizes.

            IBC Tote Adapter

            Several types of barrels are commonly used in industrial barrels, such as conventional IBC totes, plastic water towers, and steel drums. They are often used as hazardous waste shipments.

            Used in different environments, the transport container has different interface forms to facilitate the long-term barrier-free disposal of liquid hazardous waste.

            IBC totes: conventional IBC totes are basically equipped with valve interfaces; plastic water towers: valve interfaces and non-valve interfaces are common; steel drums: basically no valve

            IBC tote interface form:

            1. Threaded interface

            At present, the outlet interface of the tonnage barrel on the market is mainly a screw interface. The thread diameter is mainly related to the selection of the valve. The common DN50 ball interface diameter is 7.5cm, the DN40 ball interface diameter is 6.2cm, and the butterfly valve interface diameter is 6.2cm, 7.5 cm, 9cm, less common is the DN80 ball valve interface with a diameter of 9cm. The difficulty of sealing of this interface is affected by the degree of thread matching.

            ibc fitting
            ibc fitting

            2. Straight pipe interface

            The cost of an IBC tote with straight pipe interfaces is relatively low, and some companies that generate waste will also use this form of IBC totes in order to reduce costs. The current survey has not found relevant data on the diameter of export pipes. This type of interface has a relatively high risk, is likely to cause liquid leakage, and is difficult to seal.


            3.Flange interface

            At present, it is rare that the IBC tote unloading interface on the market is a flange interface, but this type of interface is easier to connect, and the sealing is easier than the above two types.

            IBC adapters
            IBC Tote Adapter


            1. Threaded interface

            The flange interface has a universal variable diameter, and the specifications are 6.2cm/ 7.5cm/ 9cm, so fixed C-type quick couplings can be used with different reducing joints, as shown in the following figure: agree to purchase 2 inch C-type quick couplings, with 80 to 50/100 Transfer to 50 and other different reducing joints and coarse-toothed to C-type joints. This solution can keep the pipes connected to the diaphragm pump section unchanged, and only the adapter can be replaced.

            IBC adapters
            IBC Tote Adapter

            Conventional IBC tote valves are coarse threads, and some IBC tote valves are fine threads. Therefore, IBC tote valve adapters can be used for conversion, that is, fine threads to coarse threads

            IBC Tank Fittings

            2. Straight pipe interface

            It is difficult to seal the straight pipe interface. In order to ensure that there is no leakage during the disposal process, a certain amount of reducing clamps need to be purchased to seal the diaphragm pump and the diameter interface of the water outlet. At this time, one end can be connected to a fixed C-type quick-change connector.

            3. Flange connection

            The flange interface is less difficult and the connection is more convenient. In order to reduce the cost, the variable-diameter flange can be processed by itself and then connected to the C-type quick conversion joint.

            What Everyone Ought To Know About IBC Top Screw Lids

            What material of the IBC top screw lids?

            We use 100% pure HDPE raw material food grade, which can be in direct contact with drinking water.

            IBC venting/ do i need to depressurize my IBC?

            We are often asked if IBC containers need depressurization prior to unloading, with the question arising due to the IBC’s exposure to elevated temperatures and fluctuations experienced during transport. The answer is no, and this question also applies to general IBC operational handling, integration, loading, in addition to unloading.

            Intermediate bulk containers have been engineered with vented inlet caps, vent bungs, or both. Standard IBC vacuum vents are designed to automatically operate when the holding tank’s internal pressure reaches a specific force, 0.25 psi (1.72 kPa), effectively moderating IBC containers’ internal pressure beneath safe handling levels

            Can IBC top screw lids be recycled?

            Yes, all IBC top screw lid plastic is acceptable for recycling 

            based on select cleanliness standards. Plastic IBCs are made from high-density polyethylene, HDPE, a thermoplastic, which, as such, can be broken down, melted, and reused.

            Can I clear my poly IBC top screw lids?

            Yes, rigid plastic IBC top screw lids can be cleaned. A dilute bleach (sodium hypochlorite, NaOCl) and water solution are recommended for the cleaning of the IBC interior after handling inert commodities such as sand, food ingredients, granules, water, or mild chemicals that will not hazardously react with bleach or be insoluble due to non-polar or hydrophobic characteristics. Never clean a polyethylene IBC with a chemical that indicates incompatibility with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) as cleaning with such chemicals would potentially cause chemical attack, tank and IBC top screw lids surface damage, and eventual side-wall weakening/instability.
