In this video, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet, our highest-capacity pallet with a massive 16k weight capacity and 400-gallon containment capacity. Note that our training videos are mostly designed to help our distributors better understand our products but can also be helpful to users of the products, as well.
Hello and welcome to another UltraTech product training session. Today, we’re talking about the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet.
Before I start talking about the product, I think we should probably answer one question:
What the heck is an IBC?
That’s an excellent question! And here’s an excellent answer (or so I’d like to think) IBC stands for Intermediate Bulk Container. They’re also commonly knowns as totes or tanks.
IBCs are used for storage of chemicals similarly to 55-gallon drums, just on a larger scale. So in order to capture spills from these larger containers, this IBC Spill Pallet has a containment capacity of 400 gallons. That means it will comply with EPA spill containment regulations for up to, and including 400-gallon totes.
If you’re not familiar with those regulation, I’m going to add a link below to a different video that explains the regs in detail.
Ok, let’s get on with the product training shall we?
The Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet is rotationally molded and is 100% polyethylene (linear low density polyethylene to be exact).
It is roughly 59” x 59” x 33” with a 52” x 52” grating surface that is large enough to support just about any IBC, tank, tote on the market.
It has a 400-gallon containment capacity and can hold up to 16,000 lbs.
The grating is removable for easy clean up or inspection. Inside you’ll find two supports that are specifically engineered to withstand the heavy weights of totes and tanks over long and extended periods of time.
So, why would you choose the IBC spill pallet instead of one of the other IBC spill pallets?
Capacity. And that could be either containment capacity or weight capacity. The Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet has lots of both! The 400-gallon containment capacity is the highest we offer for any of our single IBC pallets. And at 16,000 lbs. it has a higher weight capacity than any of the products in our IBC spill containment line.
Why wouldn’t you choose the IBC Spill Pallet? Portability. More specifically, the lack thereof. The Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet lacks forklift pockets and therefore cannot be moved with a forklift or pallet jack without first putting it on top of a wooden handling pallet.
Other products to consider? The Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus has less capacity than the IBC Spill Pallet but it is forkliftable. Another option is the new Ultra-IBC Berm. This two-component system uses an inner spill pallet to elevate the IBC and an outer 6’ x 6’ containment berm for complete containment of up to 400-gallons.
There are links below to both of these products should you care to look into them further.
