IBC - OF1040

'LiquidBox' Innovation

Schematic supply Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's).

The OF1040 IBC is the ideal solution for liquid movement and storage across all industry sectors including Food, Pharmaceutical and Chemical sectors as it dramatically reduces costs in comparison with alternative intermediate bulk container systems that use drums, steel IBCs or even similar plastic foldable IBCs products.  Click here to see the video of FLCs loading onto a waggon.

This IBC has a 1040 Litre (275 US Gals) capacity and is offered in the international size of 1200mm x 1000mm therefore enabling the efficient movement of product between countries and continents.

At 3.5:1 folding ratio, OF1040 is understood to have the highest folding ratio of any IBC currently on the market in its category. This folding rate is a very important as it decides how much space can be saved in a warehouse or truck when the container is folded.

With reduced costs comes increased client competitiveness in the market place.

The OF1040 foldable bag-in-box (BiB) design simplifies liquid handling throughout the logistics process and, as OF1040-2 is returnable and reusable, substantially reduces the use of packaging materials compared to one trip IBC solutions.
