Intermediate Bulk Container & Tote Tank

Intermediate Bulk Container Industry Parts and Accessories

Con-Tech outsource manufacturing supplies the Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) and tote tank industry with the best of advanced technology for IBC parts and fittings with production under strict quality control. Our IBC parts and fittings are produced to satisfy the highest IBC industry standards. And the FreezePro™ Frost Protection Systems can be found on a variety of tote tanks.

Serving The Largest IBC Producers And Renters

One of our customers has the largest IBC production network in the US with 11 production locations. Another designs and manufactures equipment for the food, beverage, chemical, oil and gas, energy, aviation and pharmaceutical industries. They specialize in custom stainless steel processing equipment, transportable storage units and complex bulk handling systems. Many others manufacture and recondition IBCs.

Another customer has one of the largest IBC rental fleets for the chemical, refining and general industrial-end markets. These sustainable packaging solutions optimize a company’s environmental footprint through reduced plastic, water conservation, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

According to one research study, the IBC market is set to cross a US $10 billion market soon as the packaging industry shifts away from plastics and plastic-based composites, with 80% of the IBC market being the food and beverage, industrial chemical, and building and construction industries.

Serious consideration needs to be given to the transit and storage of IBCs and there are complex rules governing these issues. But all agree that there are many benefits to IBC use. And the innovations in the IBC world keep coming.

Offering IBC Parts By Top Global Sourcing Suppliers

The IBC’s durability and easy handling make it a preferred form of global packaging and Con-Tech components offer the top quality that the industry demands. As the IBC has become more common, so have the IBC parts and fittings that Con-Tech supplies.

Did You Know?

The intermediate bulk container market is poised to grow by $3.18 billion during 2021-2025, with containerization a big market driver. Growth in manaufacturing and construction is another large contributor to the IBC trend.


The IBC vent prevents excessive internal pressure in the IBC. When the IBC’s internal pressure reaches a certain level the vent adjusts the internal pressure to ensure safe handling. If an IBC valve is opened without venting, a vacuum can be created causing the IBC to collapse. Conversely, if an IBC is filled without venting it can explode.

If the inner receptacle of an IBC is not vented, vacuum deformation of an IBC can be caused.

When the temperature outside an IBC increases the IBC vent needs to be released in order to avoid an explosion.

When the temperature outside the IBC decreases and the IBC is not properly vented, suction can be created deforming the IBC, creating suction and making it difficult to remove the lid.

Using the right IBC gasket prevents leaks and helps keep the product clean and sanitary.
