Whether chemicals, food or light-sensitive hazardous products, WERIT-IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers) are the ideal containers for the transport and storage of these sensitive liquid and pasty filling goods.
Altenkirchen, Germany – An important prerequisite for this is that the IBC has passed the strict BAM tests and received UN approval. These tests consist of a drop test, a stack test, a vibration test as well as a leakage and hydraulic internal pressure test, all under standardized guidelines for maximum safety. You will then receive a UN certificate with the approval for the common standard dangerous goods liquids, which also include substances such as acetic acid, hydrocarbon mixtures, or 55% nitric acid. When transporting dangerous goods, depending on the means of transport, the various ordinances or laws and guidelines, such as the ADR for road transport, RID for rail transport, and the IMDG code for sea transport, must also be observed.
WERIT IBCs can be used in a variety of ways and meet even unusual requirements. That is why they are available in numerous designs, sizes, and heights. The capacity goes from 300, 600, 800 up to 1000 liters. Special equipment modules are provided depending on the IBC line and requirement profile. A suitable selection of accessories can also be selected. The different basic dimensions of Euro pallets, half Euro pallets, and industrial pallets as well as different heights of the IBC enable the storage and loading spaces to be used in the best possible way. In addition to the natural color for the inner container, the 600 and 1000 series are also available in the WERIT PROTECline in black and white for light-sensitive products.
“We have made it easy for our customers to choose an IBC that is suitable for their requirements from our configurations,” said Gerd Herhalt, Product Manager at WERIT. “However, the requirements are often very individual and require intensive advice.
“For this purpose, WERIT has put together a customer service team of expert employees who provide appropriate advice and, if necessary, research unknown filling media and obtain further information, because safety when transporting hazardous goods and customer satisfaction are our top priorities. Sometimes we also incorporate these new developments into our standard range in order to offer them to other customers as a solution,” he added.
It is also important when selecting the WERIT IBC that is right for your purposes. Aspects such as weight and type of product as well as the desired method of filling, transport, storage, and emptying must be taken into account. The more precisely the product is specified, the more precisely the WERIT Line can be selected. If the product is flammable and has a flash point <61 ° C, we recommend our POLYex. This IBC dissipates electrostatic charge and is approved for use in potentially explosive areas of zones 1 and 2. These electrostatic charges are mainly caused by friction during fast filling and emptying as well as during mixing and stirring processes.
