This IBC now also has FM approval

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The Ecobulk SX-D intermediate bulk container (IBC; photo) is specially fitted with a steel hull to provide extensive protection against fire and also withstand extreme conditions. In the event of a fire, the steel containment basin prevents flammable contents from leaking and significantly reduces the spread of fire. This IBC significantly reduces risks by providing double leakage protection for sensitive, hazardous products. This container is said to be the first composite IBC to be awarded the “FM approved” certification seal by the FM Global Group. The approval, which is based on the internationally recognized industrial property insurer’s FM 6020 test standard, applies to flammable and combustible liquids with a flashpoint of ≥ 37.8°C. — Schütz GmbH & Co. KGaA, Selters, Germany
