CHEP Pallecon Solutions iCONIC plastic IBC

Friday, 13 March, 2015 | Supplied by: Chep Pallecon Solutions

CHEP Pallecon Solutions has launched the iCONIC plastic intermediate bulk container (IBC). The IBC, with the global footprint of 1000 x 1200 mm, has been developed to address the increasing demand for IBC packaging that can be moved across continents, resulting in sustainable cost advantages, efficiency improvements and waste reduction.

The IBC is suitable for moving, protecting and storing semi-bulk dry and liquid products. It has a carrying capacity of 1040 L, which holds more than 25% content, in the same space as four 200 L drums. The container utilises a new liner on each trip, eliminating product contamination and avoiding the process of cleaning and sanitising drums and containers after each use.

The container has an improved folding ratio of 3.5:1, meaning 98 containers can be stacked in a standard truck compared to 60 for earlier generation IBCs. The IBC is also completely recyclable, which reduces one-use product consumption and the resulting carbon footprint.

The container is fitted with non-sequential folding panels and the lid slides and locks on the back panel, making it easier and faster to set up and collapse than traditional bag-in-box systems. The four-way entry pallet base improves handling efficiencies. The sloping pallet base results in greater discharge of product and the anti-slip locators on the steel-reinforced base ensure the units can be safely stacked.

The IBC can be used in conjunction with CHEP’s existing suite of food-grade liner bag solutions.
