How are IBCs Used with Water?

Rigid Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are well known for shipping and storage of liquids. Some are used to hold drinking water for volunteers in disaster situations, while others are used to transport water that has been used for an industrial purpose and needs to be purified. Others collect and hold rainwater to be used in growing crops.

Design of the RIBC

The RIBC is made of a plastic bottle with a cap on top for filling, a valve or spout on the bottom for clean pouring, and a metal cage that lends the bottle structure. The RIBC tank is especially popular for shipping liquids because the design allows for easy draining of the product inside. Additionally, the tanks are designed to minimize sloshing and prevent spilling and loss of product.

Benefits of using an RIBC to store Water

The RIBC is available in many different conditions, from used and washed to new. The condition can be selected based upon the condition of the water needed. The RIBC is also sturdy enough to stack, even when full, weighing 1100 kg. Finally, the RIBC is more space-effective than other shipping methods such as drums, which cannot pack tightly due to their rounded shape.

IBC Use in Chemical Waste Management

While the IBC tank is widely used for carrying water, it is also found in shipping the chemicals used to treat wastewater. IBCs efficiently ship liquids, whether that be the water people need to drink or the treatments that make water drinkable.
