'LiquidBox' Innovation

Schematic supply Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's).

The OF1249 IBC is a very large IBC capable of contents storage of 1249 Litres (330 US Gals). It is an 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.

The OF1249 has a standard footprint (48” x 44”) suitable for the North American market (and therefore particularly applicable for ALL exporters to the USA). It is understood to be the only IBC approved by Association of American Railroads (AAR) for both bottom and top dispense. In the food industry, it is used for freight haulage of products such as Tomato Paste, Fruit Pulp and other liquid food and beverage ingredients.

The OF1249 foldable bag-in-box (BiB) design simplifies liquid handling throughout the logistics process and, as OF1249 is returnable and reusable, substantially reduces the use of packaging materials compared to one trip IBC solutions.

At 4.0:1 folding ratio, OF1249 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 aware house or truck when the container is folded.

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

OF330 has passed the general simulation performance test for packaged-products (ISTA-3E) by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), and also obtained the quality and reliability certification from the world's leading certification company SGS.
