IBC Containers and Bins

The original IBC Containers (Intermediate Bulk Container) was made from plywood in 1937 for the storage and handling of flour for the milling industry. After WWII the Seattle area originators formed a partnership with Beatrice Steel Tank in Nebraska. The first metal containers were made from aluminum in 1948. The side door design allowed for the discharge of almost any powder including those with poor flow characteristics.

CPS has a registered manufacturing Number “M5730”. It allows us to design and build Dry material handling Bins labeled as CFR49 UN11B Group Y DOT Title 49 Compliant, for Hazardous and Regulated materials shipping over the highway system.

A pivoted hopper discharge was designed to match the bin’s door area and was used for 2-3 years until a new tilting discharge hopper design improved the sealing and dust control. The tilting discharge or stationary hopper was used for many years and worked very well until the bins became dented and worn making them hard to seal.

Bottom discharge units were also designed using a transition hopper from the rectangular body down to a discharge valve. This design virtually eliminated the problem of dust control and allowed for the discharge to close against the flow of product.

  • Off-line storage and testing
  • Quick batch changeover
  • Repeatable, homogenous blending
  • Modular design for ease of transport and versatility

New! Aluminum pallets to solve the static, breaking, shedding, staining and cleaning issues with plastic or other materials. Pallets can be customized to your size and operation requirements. Cost effective with residual scrap value.

Spare Parts

We highly recommend ordering spare parts at the time of equipment purchase due to current extended supply chain lead times. Spare parts kits consist of typical wear parts by equipment type with detailed part selection confirmed shortly after client drawing approval.  The spare parts list will be provided for review and discussion with our spare part specialist to identify any adjustments desired based on client’s unique needs and usage.
