Regular maintenance of IBC containers is essential to prolong their service life and ensure proper operation. Taking care of this equipment avoids potential incidents and guarantees the safety of industrial operations.
It is important to regularly check the integrity of IBC containers. Inspect them carefully for cracks, deformations or any signs of damage. Repairs should be made as soon as possible to avoid any further problems.
Preventive maintenance should be carried out more or less regularly depending on the use. Seals must be changed to ensure tightness (cover, valve or hatch seals) and to check accessories (valves, caps, etc.). At NCS, you can entrust us with the repair of your containers.
Proper cleaning of IBC containers is essential to remove product residues or contaminants. Use non-corrosive cleaning solutions and appropriate tools to ensure effective cleaning without damaging the container material.
Be sure to properly store IBC containers when not in use. Avoid environments that are humid or exposed to extreme temperatures. Ideally, empty containers should be stored indoors to protect them from the elements.
It is crucial to train the personnel responsible for handling IBC containers. They must be aware of safety procedures and good practices to avoid potential accidents. Continuous training updates their knowledge on the use and maintenance of containers.
By following these best maintenance practices, IBC containers remain in good working order, contributing to the safety, efficiency and profitability of industrial operations.
