Hoover Container Solutions is offering a UN31A DOT compliant stainless steel IBC with a internal roto molded polyethylene lining. This design allows shippers and/or end users to transport their packaging groups II & III hazardous materials which normally are not compatible with an all metal IBC design type. The stainless steel outer shell is the same robust Hoover IBC design that has been proven and used in the chemical and petroleum industry for many decades. The inner shell is a linear low-density polyethylene (LLDP) material that is roto molded (125mil [3.2mm] approximate thickness) to the inside the IBC. All internal wetted surfaces of the IBC will have either a polyethylene or polypropylene material finish so no product stored inside of the container will come into contact with a metal finish.The stainless steel polyethylene lined IBC comes standard with a 16” diameter top manway opening featuring a stainless steel domed/bolt down polyethylene lined cover, and a 2” polypropylene bottom outlet ball valve.
