IBC sizes range from 110 to 550 gallons, with 275 and 330 being the most common. Dimensions are internationally standardized to roughly 45″L x 45″W. They are engineered for mobility with built in pallet / forklift access along with stacking capabilities.

While the life expectancy of a standard HDPE IBC tote is around a decade, owners can follow certain steps to increase the lifespan of their tanks. IBC damage often occurs when the bottle is left in the sun, as UV damage weakens the plastic bottle.
Why are they called IBC totes?
An intermediate bulk container (or IBC) is a pallet mounted, industrial grade reusable container that is used for storing and transporting bulk liquids and powders. Also known as a tote, the IBC is capable of stacking and can be moved by a pallet jack or forklift.
