This IBC has a compact design for streamlined shipping

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The new Ecobulk MX 560 intermediate bulk container (IBC; photo) has a lower height than standard models and a nominal volume of 560 L (150 gal). The MX 560 offers a significant advantage when shipping by sea: the pallet size makes optimum use of the storage and transport space in standardized large-capacity containers, even for mixed loads with larger MX IBC variants. With triple stacking throughout, 30 IBCs of this model will fit in a 20-ft ISO container. The four horizontal tubes of the steel grid provide the necessary stability and ensure secure stacking. The large, metal label plate, which covers eight fields of the steel grid, provides plenty of space for detailed product information. With its reduced capacity and optimized footprint, the new IBC offers lower capital tie-up and shorter storage times for products with a slow turnover. The IBC can also be equipped with an ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) permeation barrier, which ensures product quality, safeguards the filling product against changes in the environment and against potential contamination by stopping oxygen, nitrogen and other gases from permeating in and out of the container. — Schütz GmbH & Co.
