Waterproof cover for IBC Containers

IBC waterproof covers

 

This waterproof PVC cover is perfect to secure an IBC container against water in moist environments. The seams on the cover are welded, which makes the cover perfectly waterproof.

The IBC cover is designed in a sizing that makes it possible to have an IBC Container Heater attached to the container underneath the cover, which makes it possible to safely heat contents in the container even in wet weather or in moist conditions.

The IBC Cover is produced in durable PVC plastic and is easy to attach and detach to an intermediate bulk container (IBC).

The cover easily folds for minimal storage space.

Technical specifications:

  • Produced in durable PVC materials.
  • Welded seams for optimal waterproofing.
  • Can be used with an IBC Container Heater.

IBC Thermal Bubble Wrap Cover

IBC thermal bubble wrap cover

IBC bubble foil insulation covers are designed to isolate and maintain the temperature of an IBC Container (Intermediate Bulk Container).

These thermal IBC aluminium bubble wrap covers are designed to provide optimal protection from solar radiation, blocking the direct sunlight and deflecting the radiation and the heat so that the containers can be transported and/or be placed outdoor without damage and overheating from the sun's rays.

IBC bubble wrap covers are made of a metallic aluminium outer layer, which deflect the sun rays and a bubble wrap interlayer that helps to create space between the outer layer and the container, resulting in minimal to no heat transfer from the outside.

The Insulation cover is a one-piece cover, which is easily installed by pulling it down over the IBC container – the insulating cover has a Velcro input from the top so that the IBC container top lid easily can be accessed.

Technical specifications:

  • Metallic aluminium inner- and outer.
  • Bubble wrap foil interlayer.
  • Perfect heat and radiation blocking.
  • Standard size:  1000L

IBC Container Heater, 3 Thermostats

IBC container heater

When at room temperature, many materials often become viscous, which makes them harder to discharge from an IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container). In specific syrup, sugar, fats and others are difficult to discharge and often result in wasting products due to the thick viscosity not being able to leave the container.

This can end up being an expensive process unless you heat the (IBC) container first to make materials smoother and less viscous.

An IBC heating jacket is the perfect solution when it comes to quickly and effectively heating up fluids and materials, making them straightforward to empty from a container with minimal to no waste product.

The IBC heater is produced with either 1, 2 or 3 thermostats, all adjustable from 0 to 90 °C, making the container heater very fast and safe to heat liquids and maintaining the wanted viscosity for the content in the container.

The IBC heater jacket is designed in a durable and long-lasting high quality lightweight design and the construction together with quick release buckles makes the container heater easy to attach to any standard 1000L container.

This also makes this heater perfect to use when transporting 1000L containers with content that requires specific temperatures or viscosity.

TIP! For a faster and optimal heating process, we recommend using the IBC insulated lid (sold separately). The lid easily attaches to the top of the container, reducing waste of heat.(Shown above)

Container heating jackets are an ideal supplement to container heating cabinets, where the jacket is mounted to a single container. The container heating jackets can also be used with heating cabinets or heating ovens, making transportation of a heated container much easier and the heat loss minimal to none.

The container heater can be used to heat a variety of liquids, e.g. water, resin, oil, diesel fuel and many other industrial liquids and allows them to be poured or pumped with ease.

IBC Silicone Base Heater

IBC base heater

An IBC silicone base heater is an effective and powerful way to heat up contents inside an IBC container.

The base heater is perfect for heating viscous or semi-solid products and making them straightforward to discharge from a container with minimal to no waste product.

The 2700W base heater can heat e.g. water in a fully loaded IBC container from 15 °C to 70 °C in less than 40 hours. If a faster heating process is required, we recommend adding an IBC insulation jacket to the process.

Silicone Base Heaters are produced in highly durable and long-lasting silicone materials that easily can withstand the weight of a fully loaded IBC Container. The base heater fits a variety of intermediate bulk containers (IBC containers) including IBC containers from Schütz, GNX, Mauser, Werit and Greif.

The silicone base heater is easy to install and to use - simply remove the bulk container from the IBC frame and install the silicone heater in the very bottom of the frame. Insert the container on top of the heater, fill the container, and you are all set to heat the contents. This also makes the heater ideal for heating and maintaining temperature while transporting the IBC container.

The IBC silicone base heater can be mounted with an adjustable digital temperature controller for safe and precise temperature controlling.

IBC Internal Heater

IBC internal heater diagram

The Internal IBC Heater is a unique approach to heating viscous foodstuffs and chemicals within IBC Containers. Instead of traditionally heating from the outside, the heater is inserted inside the container with the base of the heating unit next to the outlet valve. This strategic placement makes it super easy to discharge the content from the IBC with little to no product waste.

It is designed to protect sensitive products, such as syrups, honey, treacle, molasses, fats and other viscous products that are difficult to process. Most products can be batched within a relatively short time, increasing efficiency and reducing downtime.

Features

  • Fast internal heating
  • Accurate temperature control
  • All energy is transferred to the product
  • Will not burn or scorch the product
  • Sterilization option

IBC Container Aluminium Foil Heater

IBC base foil heater

Heating with an IBC Aluminium Foil Heater is an effective and low-cost method to heat the contents from the bottom inside an IBC container.

Foil Heaters are manufactured to individual specification for use in a variety of intermediate bulk containers (IBC containers) including IBC containers from Schütz, GNX, Hoover, Mauser, Werit and Greif. 

Unlike normal IBC aluminium foil heaters produced with a paper inner, our IBC alu heaters are produced with a full-body aluminium construction, making our aluminium heaters more stable, durable and capable of withstanding the weight from a fully loaded IBC container. 

The aluminium foil heater is straightforward to install and to use - simply remove the bulk container from the IBC frame and install the heater in the very bottom on the frame. Insert the container on top of the aluminium heater, fill the container, and you are all set to heat the contents. This also makes the heater ideal for heating while transporting the IBC container.

The aluminium foil heater is equipped with a bi-metal limiter, which limits the heater to a maximum of 50/60 °C or 70/80°, depending on the bi-metal installed.

The 1400W Aluminium heater can heat e.g. water in a fully loaded IBC container from 10 °C to 43 °C in less than 48 hours.

The aluminium foil heater is designed as a "single use" heater, which means that the product is to be discarded when used.
