Totes or Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) offer a pallet mounted industrial grade container suitable for handling most chemicals, ingredients, oils, wastes, fluids, solids, and semi-solids. The UN rated container is stackable and can be moved easily with a pallet jack or forklift. Pipeline Packaging’s tote product line ranges in size from 120 to 550 gallons, with the most common configurations being 275 and 330 gallons. Totes are a great alternative to traditional plastic and steel drums.
The inside bottle is constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), a strong and durable thermoplastic. UV-Inhibited resin additives are also available in some configurations. The exterior cage is made from quality galvanized steel that resists corrosion, rust, and other physical impacts.
Reconditioned and Remanufactured totes are a more economical option that is also environmentally conscious:
- Reconditioned Totes consist of a previously used inside bottle, cage, and pallet. The bottle is washed out prior to re-sale, making it ideal for agricultural and waste disposal industries where a new container is not always a requirement.
- Remanufactured Totes (also known as “re-bottled”) consist of a brand new bottle with a used pallet and cage.
