Transport hazardous goods with this new IBC

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The new Ecobulk SX-D intermediate bulk container (IBC; photo) is designed for transporting hazardous goods, such as flammable or highly combustible liquids. The IBC has already received the quality seal of the FM Global Group. It has a closed, fire-resistant hull in addition to the classic steel grid. This hull is welded to the integrated bottom plate, forming a separate sealed containment basin around the inner bottle of the container. The double-wall construction provides effective additional protection against leakage and stops sensitive liquids from escaping, even in extreme situations, such as in the event of a fire with very high temperatures. — Schütz GmbH & Co.
