So you have all the advantages of comparable IBC’s (Schutz, Mauser, Sotralens, etc) but with all the advantages of a Bag in Box packaging. As:
- No air inside the IBC 250L, the liner (inner bag) contains no air;
- No possibility of pollution
- No introduction of air during filling / emptying
- No foaming during filling
- No dehydration of the filled product on the top (skin formation)
- UV (light) protection of outer packaging.
- High insulation properties of the cardboard compared to conventional IBC’s.
- Foldable; Packaging can be easily collapsed after use. Empty containers take up little space after use.
- Easy to recycle. The different components (wood, cardboard, and plastic) are easy to separate.
In comparison with foldable containers (Combo, Pallecon, etc) the 250L IBC package has some very important advantages.
- No rental, return or pooling obligations of the packaging.
- It can be delivered for Direct-Use, with the liner already placed in the IBC. With this you can immediately start filling your product.
- You have no stock of various packaging materials with mostly different packaging numbers.
- The inner bag (liner) is a so-called ‘Free Flow Gusset liner’, which unfolds completely on its own during filling. You do not have to pull the liner during filling to get 100% filled, which is the case with conventional liners.

Intermediate bulk containers demonstrate an overall increase in shipping and packing efficiency, especially when considering use of multiple IBC tanks: would be the equivalent of 24 55-gallon drums that would occupy 6 pallets, effectively saving 2 pallet spaces. Additionally, IBCs can be manufactured to a customer’s exact requirements in terms of capacity, dimensions, and material. Learn more about IBC’s at wikipedia
