Typical flexitankable products:
This is only a brief list of basic goods, which are often shipped in flexitanks worldwide. Most HARMLESS liquid products are accepted for transport in flexitanks, but to make sure we always would like to have copy of MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for checking and confirmation.
For the products, which have never been transported in flexitanks before, we recommend testing in special small flexitanks of 10 litres in our laboratory in Europe. We can organize sampling and testing ourselves according to the agreement with the client.
Intermediate Bulk Containers are reusable industrial containers designed for the transportation and storage of bulk liquid and granular substances (e.g. chemicals, food ingredients, solvents, pharmaceuticals, etc.).
Intermediate bulk containers effectively bridge the gap between large bulk transit containers and unitized consumer packaging.Intermediate bulk containers are stackable containers mounted on a pallet that are designed to be moved using a forklift or a pallet jack.
IBCs have a volume range that is positioned between drums and tanks, hence the term "intermediate“. The most common sizes are 1,040 litres and 1,250 litres (the 1040 liter IBCs are often listed as being 1000 litres). Cube shaped IBCs provide particularly good utilization of storage capacity.
Intermediate bulk containers effectively bridge the gap between large bulk transit containers and unitized consumer packaging.
The construction of the IBC containers depends on the application of use, but the two main types are steel & plastic.They are designed for easy use with material handling vehicles such as fork lifts. Many intermediate bulk container designs allow the container to be collapsed and folded for compact storage.
These containers are commonly used to store a range of materials, including loose components, powdered goods, and liquid soap, as well as food stuffs and hazardous fluids or solids.
The advantages of using IBC containers include low transit costs, efficient space utilization during transit or storage, and good compatibility with a range of filling and discharge systems.
IBCs decrease customer costs through reduced handling, storage space and shipping expenses.
A drum is a cylindrical container used for shipping bulk cargo. Drums are also called barrels in common usage. Steel drums are used as shipping containers for chemicals and other liquids.
Drums can be made of steel, dense paperboard (commonly called a fiber drum), or plastics, and are generally used for the transportation and storage of liquids and powders.
Drums are often certified for shipment of dangerous goods. Shipped goods must be matched with the make of drum necessary to comply with applicable regulations. The drums are typically made of steel with a ribbed outer wall to improve rigidity and for rolling. The lids can be welded or secured with a head gasket and bolt ring. They are commonly used for transporting oils, fuels, chemicals, and dry goods.
The construction and performance of drums used for shipment of dangerous goods or hazardous materials are governed by UN, country, and carrier regulations. Drums are frequently transported on pallets for ease of handling by a fork truck and for shipping.
The drum's size, shape, and weight distribution lends itself to being moved about readily on the loading dock or factory floor with a two-wheeled hand truck.
International standard size: The exact capacity varies by manufacturer, purpose, or other factors.Standard drums have inside dimensions of 22.5 inches (572 mm) diameter and 33.5 inches (851 mm) height.These dimensions yield a volume of about 13,320 cubic inches, but they are commonly filled to about 200 litres.The outside dimensions of a 200-litre drum are typically 23 inches (584 mm) diameter at the top or bottom rim, 23.5 inches (597 mm) diameter at the chines (ridges around drum), and 34.5 inches (876 mm) height.
