Reconditioned IBC Totes consists of a sanitized HDPE inner liner, a reconditioned cage, and a steel or plastic pallet.

Reconditioned IBCs are a used IBC tote that has been through a series of tests and examinations in order to be recertified in accordance with the regulations provided by the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the United Nations. The purpose of these quality inspection examinations is to ensure that the IBC has the structural integrity necessary to provide safe storage and transport.

Recon IBC Tanks

A reconditioned tank is an ideal solution for industries handling hazardous and non-hazardous materials in bulk.

Their designs, testing, and approval adhere to the DOT/UN 31HA1/Y standard for packing group II and III materials.

There are two capacities for refurbished totes, 275 gallon and 330 gallon. They can hold fluids with a specific gravity up to 1.9. For transportation and handling operations involving chemicals, acids, corrosives, and caustics, these reconditioned tanks are the most cost-effective.

Refurbished Industry Standards Specifications

Container Reconditioning Process

Reconditioned tanks that pass all of the necessary quality inspection examinations are marked accordingly, and are made available for sale. Once these totes have been properly labeled and made available for sale, they are immediately eligible for reuse. Totes that do not meet the necessary criteria are cleaned, shredded, and discarded in accordance with regulations and industry standards provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

RECONDITIONED TOTES ARE NOT FOOD GRADE

Refurbished totes are not classified as food grade totes because their previous contents may serve as contaminants for food grade or highly regulated materials. As such, reconditioned, or “recon”, IBCs are used for storing and transporting less critical and regulated materials such as low grade chemicals, inputs for industrial production, solvents, detergents, adhesives, and other petrochemical and raw materials.

Availability of Reconditioned Totes

The reconditioning process is laborious, and requires a tremendous amount of capital on behalf of the reconditioners. Consequently, the market price of reconditioned totes typically reflects those of new totes in order to compensate reconditioners for their human and physical capital. Nevertheless, recon totes are in the same condition as a new tote and can be applied in many of the same ways as a new tote.

Refurbished IBCs Construction

Reconditioned Cage, Bottle and Valve

Totes that have been reconditioned are constructed of galvanized steel cage and HDPE inner liner and have been recertified for storage and transportation but cannot be used in potable water applications.

They consist of a reconditioned plastic bottle, steel cage, and pallet.

They offer a 6″ inlet and 2″ outlet. Generally speaking, the most widely used discharge valve is a 2″ ball valve combined with a 2″ male camlock coupler.

Reconditioned IBCs Advantages, Applications & Characteristics

The large supply of used caged IBC totes generated by manufacturers and industrial companies has created a highly competitive local market where many companies have thrived refurbishing caged IBCs. Thus, they can be obtained locally at very affordable costs. For the end users, these local reconditioning tote companies reduce the cost and time of transportation. Consequently, lower prices and competitive rates follow.
