Transtore IBC Tanks Lined Up

Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC)


The TranStore® intermediate bulk container is the most advanced liquid handling tank in the market today.

With a one-piece top and superior draining bottom, TranStore IBC containers set the industry standard for performance. Prior to ship, the interior and exterior are cleaned using the automated “TransClean” system. TranStore IBCs provide nearly limitless service life with minimal maintenance.

Each Custom Metalcraft TranStore tank meets or exceeds all Intermediate Bulk Container requirements, per Title CFR49 of the Hazardous Material Guide. Common design approvals include UN31A and UL142. Additionally, TranStore IBCs meet NFPA “Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code” NFPA 30 section 9.4.1 (1).
