Different types of IBCs
Liquid tanks can vary in material, volume, litres and colour. IBC containers are usually made of plastic with a steel frame around it. You can buy an IBC with a capacity of 600 litres, 800 or 1000 litres from Kruizinga. It is also possible to choose foodstuffs containers to store foodstuffs correctly. For storing water, the 1000 litre water container is most often chosen, but when the IBC container is used for storing other goods, a 1000 litre IBC container is also often preferred.
Furthermore, you can also make a choice based on the filling aperture. At Kruizinga, you have a choice of an IBC container with a 115 mm fill opening, a 150 mm fill opening, a 225 mm fill opening for an IBC or a 240 mm fill opening.
An IBC container can also be UN-approved. A UN certification for these IBC 's means that you are allowed to transport and store hazardous substances. After all, you must comply with an ADR regulation to do so. Of course, it is important that you comply with other national or international legislation.
Undercarriage of an IBC
The base of an IBC can consist of various types of materials. You can opt for a wooden pallet, a plastic pallet or a steel pallet. A wooden base is the cheapest alternative and is often used in the transport world. A plastic base is easier to clean and often suitable for the food industry. Finally, a steel base is characterised by the fact that the material is easy to clean and impact-resistant. This type is also common in the food industry. Think for example of the catering industry or factories where food is made. Furthermore, at Kruizinga we have a choice between a black IBC container and a white IBC container.
