Whether your Intermediate Bulk Containers need modifications for a new process idea or repairs from a little run-in with a forklift, we at CPS are happy to fix them up for you. While we do specialize in building custom machines, there are also some significant benefits to choosing to refurbish your old bins instead of buying new.
Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC), also called “Bins”, are the industry standard for powder handling and processing applications where close containment is required. At Custom Powder Systems, we custom build these Bins and Bin Systems to precisely fit our customers’ needs.
Sometimes, however, it can be in a company’s best interest to spruce up an IBC they already have instead of investing in a brand new one. We talked to Rayce Gibson, a valued Sales Executive at CPS, about the benefits of refurbishing bins and how we can help with yours.
Intermediate Bulk Containers handle powders from the raw material form to the point where it is either put into a package or made into tablets, capsules, or something similar. They are most often used in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical industries.
While these bins all essentially serve the same purpose, at CPS their fit and finishes are tailored to each company’s products. “Everything we do is built to the customer specifications or to their specific needs,” Rayce says. “All the equipment basically has the same starting point, and then everything is tweaked accordingly to fit whatever the customer requests.”
Having bins that don’t fit your current needs can really put a damper on the production process. However, not all companies have the resources to purchase new machines as frequently as they need fixing. At Custom Powder Systems, we believe there are many benefits to simply refurbishing the IBC you already have. Here’s just a few:
Whether you purchased your bins from us or another manufacturer, we’d love to help you through the process of refurbishing.
“If you have bins that are damaged that you need to put back in service, send them to us!” Rayce says. “We’re more than happy to talk with anybody and everybody about doing the work to keep production quantities up that you may otherwise not be able to meet with damaged bins.”
We don’t call ourselves Custom Powder Systems for nothing. All of our products are designed specifically for the needs of each individual company because we know all the ins-and-outs of how the powder handling process works. We take great pride in being customer-centric and always providing the highest quality products.
“We work really hard as a team to find the best possible solution for the customer so we can make their lives easier and give them something that is going work,” Rayce says. “The greatest benefit we offer as a company is the extensive knowledge and experience of our teams.”
Whether you need a brand new bin or just a touch up on an old one, Custom Powder Systems is happy to work with you to create exactly what you’re looking for. Just give us a call, and let us know how we can help!
