Industrial Bulk Container (IBC) tanks are widely used in breweries, drink production plants, dairies and other manufacturing settings, to store liquids, ingredients, cleaning chemicals, sterilised water and waste products. As heavy duty, reusable tanks, IBCs can quickly become soiled and risk becoming a haven for microbiological contaminants. Regular cleaning is therefore essential to retain the hygiene of the tanks and avoid product spoilage. Cleaning can also be a time-consuming, expensive and wasteful process, unless the right technique and equipment is used. This article is a quick guide on how to clean out an IBC Tank, without using excess water, employee time, and energy.

As UK Master Distributor for Alfa Laval, ITS endeavour to power through these challenging times.

Our number one priority is to continue to provide excellent service to our customer base while adhering to the government lockdown and preventing social interaction.

We are set up, so all staff are available to you via the main landline (01675 465 191) and/or email – they are just home based for the foreseeable future.  Alongside this we have a skeleton staff at the office receiving and dispatching orders.  This way we can continue to support you for new products or spares when needed most.

Our UK stock includes range of Alfa Laval Pumps, Valves, Heat Exchanger gaskets and Tank Optimisation Equipment, plus all critical spares.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any assistance you may require with technical help, spares, or new enquiries.

In the light of the issues relating to the growing spread of the COVID-19 virus Industrial Trading Solutions are taking some early actions to mitigate the spread while continuing to offer an unparalleled level of Technical Support and next day service from our complete hygienic range of products.

From 16th March 2020 we are withdrawing our three Regional Sales Managers from their current full-time role of customer visits across various industries throughout the UK. The three RSM’s will now be office based for the foreseeable future and will continue to support customers by e-mail, telephone contact and selective visits (when requested or essential), for project discussions, technical issues, and any specific site-based problems.

In addition, we have a number of Manufacturer trained technical engineers in Coleshill who provide specific customer support as well as a large ‘local’ stock of products and spares. We also have the development and repair centre staff who can carry out urgent site maintenance as required.

The current delivery situation from Sweden, Denmark, Germany and France appears to be unaffected and we will continue to offer next day delivery for as long as possible. (Alfa Laval, Mouvex, Bornemann, KMH, MCPI, Pipetite, Depa, Tri Clover, etc)

However, for larger projects or orders you may need to consider some possible future delivery delays if factories do close, the earlier we receive your order the less chance there is of a delay, particularly if the equipment/order is time critical.

Deliveries from Italy have become an issue, but we can source and supply any currently unavailable products from alternative locations.

We will continue to update you on the changing delivery situation on various products via our new website.

We have already put into place emergency measures in anticipation of a worsening situation and these include supporting you from home-based locations to ensure a continuation of our service.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help with technical assistance, breakdowns, additional process optimisation – or simply re-evaluating your level of emergency spares. It now may also be a good time to have servicing work done on any spare and emergency pumps.

Please contact us – we are here to help.
