Customer Questions
Are these totes are suitable for pressure rating of – 20mbarg to 50 mbarg?
Thank you for your question. This IBC tote tank is only rated for atmospheric pressure. Thank you for choosing The Cary Company.
When spray washing the inside of the tank with solvents there is a chance of a deflagration? Can the IBC withstand a deflagration if the top 22.5" diameter opening is available for venting? Do you have any UL of NFPA or other authority acceptance for solvent spray washing these IBC's?
Thank you for your inquiry. There is a possibility of deflagration when spray washing this tote with solvents. However, the tank can likely withstand that.
