The AUTOBIN Integrated Bulk Container (IBC) system by Kockums provides a versatile option for the transport and storage of granules and powders, commonly in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

The IBC system is more flexible than using conventional hoppers and silos as it can easily be expanded for current and future needs. The system is ideally suited to be used for momentary or short term storage and it’s modular nature makes it ideal to grow with your business.

Using conventional bins and hoppers for handling solids is often quite challenging as the discharge devices and conventional valves provide a restriction and are usually unable to completely release the content. However the AUTOBIN IBC system uses a large pulsating cone valve to solve this problem. Storage of product is completely sealed and could be maintained under a nitrogen cover if required. Filling and emptying are easily performed and accurate weigh out is possible. The cone valve allows for partial emptying of content if necessary. IBC’s have a capacity range from 1000 to 3000 liter and is offered in a choice of polythene, mild steel or stainless steel containers.
