Informative Description of IBC Bin About Process & Applications

Bin (IPC) is a container made from SS 316 sheets having cylindrical Body and taper bottom. A lid is provided on top. The lid is big so that complete washing the IPC is easy. The Bin is seated on a detachable stand or fixed leg made of SS 304 pipe stand, having forelegs and each leg is fitted with heavy duty castor wheel of special design with ball bearing and SS side frame (2 nos. fixed and 2 Nos swiveling).

Bin (IPC) are used for handling, storing, transporting and mixing of pharmaceutical powders and granules before, between and after various processes. They are designed and manufactured to be handled through their own trolley and offer the advantage to leave the trolley at floor when the container is raised up to be positioned onto process machines like tablet presses, sachet filling machines etc.

The IPC Bin loader is use for transfer the material dust free and without human touch in pharmaceutical industries for Load powder in to RMG bowl, Load powder in to hopper of tablet press, Load tablet in to hopper of blister pack & Coating Machine and online sifting and milling. The IPC Bin Loader consists of a main frame, Bin fixing arm, Hydraulic lifting device and pivot base. This main frame move 360 degree on axis and Bin fixing arm move upward and downward in the frame by hydraulic cylinder and power pack system. The moveable container/Bin bringing placed beneath the fixing arm, operate the hydraulic drive system which lifts arm with the container and it raises the container till it gets stops exactly in a position and then it could be unload by opening of butterfly on the what ever machine.

In the industries where different products/goods are manufactured, the requirements for various containers are high for storing, and other purposes. As there are different types of containers, one of the most reliable types of storage containers is the intermediate bulk containers. This intermediate container is also called the IBC bin. With the quality of being reusable, and the ability to provide multi-graded industrial applications, these containers are preferred by numerous manufacturing industries. Some of the various points that describe all about these containers are mentioned below.


The IBC bins are rigid type containers that have a combined pallet that is used in storing solid, liquid, and other substances. The body of the IBC bins is made up of either plastic/metal or by a combination of two different materials. IBC (Intermediate bulk containers) tanks hold a huge capacity, and their ability to carry a heavy amount of items is also useful for numerous industries like oil refineries and pharmaceutical industries to carry out fluids and gases in a bulk quantity. There are other types of tanks, such as the flexible intermediate bulk containers. This container is made from fiber wood, folding plastic, or aluminum of heavy quality so that the container is durable and as a result, this container can store and mix material like sand, powder, and fertilizer in bulk with more flexibility. This Intermediate bulk container tank is DOT/UN certified, which means the container is perfectly suitable for transporting non-hazardous & hazardous goods that come under II and III level packaging commodities. As a matter of fact, most of the IBC bins are also certified with some other quality check which makes them industry compatible.


IPC bin loader is one of the special types of storage container used in transporting, handling, and mixing up various powders at a specific period during the process. One of the salient features of the IPC process containers bin loader is that it is designed to handle the load of the trolley, which makes it easy for containers to coordinate with the equipment like tablet press and sachet fillers. Another application of the container is that this IPC bin loader can transfer material from one place to another by itself, which is a beneficial aspect in the dust-free transfer of materials without involving any human touch. Mostly the use of these containers is seen in loading powders into the RMG bowl and also for loading powder in the tablet press hopper.



First and foremost application of the intermediate bulk container tank is that it is used to mix various materials present in different forms like solid, fluid, and powder/granules. Another application of the IBC bin is related to its speed, which means the containers are useful when high-speed mixing of materials is required. The IBC bins are also used when the lubricants have to be converted into powder or granule particles.


The process of IBC containers starts with the filling, where the machine IBC bins are filled up with materials of different kinds. Once the tank filling is complete, this container starts mixing and handling side by side so that it saves more time and work efficiency. After this process, the IBC bin loader is transported to the other equipment that is going to be used for the further processing of the material, where the role of this intermediate bulk container is to transfer the material into the equipment carefully.

The reason why industries prefer this container is that the intermediate bulk container price is efficient and affordable for various industries. Another reason for preferring this container is because these IBC bins play an important role in the material making process. Hence, here are the various types of bin loaders with their numerous features and applications.
