IBC Totes are caged intermediate bulk containers designed for successful collection and storage when capturing various liquid or sludge waste streams. IBC Tanks offer 275 gallon and 330 gallon sizes, 1.9 SG, rebottled HDPE caged IBC totes as cost effective, durable waste storage tote options. New IBC totes are engineered and certified for haz or non-haz liquid storage.

For transport, IBC totes are compliant with Title 49 CFRs and are DOT / UN permitted and labeled UN31HA/Y for domestic and offshore modes of transportation and uses.

Poly one-way IBC totes are a favorite for handling, moving and storing industrial chemicals. They are also widely used in the food and beverage industry to store and transport syrups, food oils, alcohol, and other liquids.

Totes come in two standard sizes of 275 and 330-gallons. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) IBCs are rotationally blow molded, forming a single piece, so they are highly durable. These tanks are UN/DOT certified and can store liquids up to a 1.9 specific gravity, making them ideal for storing and transporting chemicals and liquids.

Both the 275 & 330 gallon sizes feature a heavy-duty base which is designed for four-way fork-lift entry and two-way pallet jack access. They also feature stacking lugs for appropriate alignment and stability when the tanks are stacked, allowing you to use space efficiently and save on labor, storage and freight costs.
