IBC Tote/Tank Sizes and Dimensions

IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers) are ideal storage containers for a variety of industrial needs. IBC totes and tanks are useful, tough, stackable, and provide easy access to products stored inside. IBC tank dimensions and sizes vary depending upon the user’s needs.

What Can You Store in IBCs?

IBC tanks and totes come outfitted with valves and other attachments that allow users to dispense the products within. Because of this versatility, IBCs easily store industrial fluids and solids.

  • Liquid, granulated, and/or powdered food ingredients
  • Food syrups, such as corn syrup or molasses
  • Bulk chemicals including hazardous materials or dangerous goods
  • Commodities and raw materials used in industrial production
  • Petrochemical products, such as solvents, detergents, or adhesives
  • Rainwater when used for rooftop rainwater collection

IBC Tote Dimensions

IBC tanks or totes are manufactured in plastic, carbon steel, or stainless steel and range from 180 to 550 gallons. The IBC tank dimensions listed below are typical standard sizes, however most IBC suppliers also offer additional sizes in between these capacity ranges.

Powerblanket IBC Heating Solutions

Storing temperature sensitive materials in IBCs during the winter can present a real problem. As fluid products freeze and expand, IBC tanks and totes can crack, rupture, and even explode. Colder temperatures can also cause viscosity problems for industrial fluids. Applied heat reduces fluid viscosity making it easier to pour, pump, dispense, and work with.
