There are thousands of different industrial chemicals, each with its own unique set of challenges. Metano’s product line offers chemical totes built from a variety of materials to ensure your needs are met. We offer chemical IBCs built with stainless steel, carbon steel, and high density polyethylene. Before you buy (or rent), it’s important to research what materials your product is compatible with. A good starting point is to look at the Cole-Parmer Chemical Compatibility Database.
Transporting industrial chemicals in tote tanks is more efficient than using drums. The square design of the tote tanks results in less wasted space and more product moved with each shipment. A 550-gallon IBC takes up the same amount of space as four drums (one pallet), but has the same capacity as ten drums!

IBCs are typically transported by truck, though totes are certified to also be moved by rail freight, air freight, and cargo vessels.
IBCs are ideal for storing liquids in large quantities. Our stainless steel IBCs are stackable, washable, reusable and can be shipped affordably. Totes, when stacked in storage, allow for over 1000 gallons of product to be stored in a single pallet space. Our polyethylene and polyethylene composite totes come in capacities of 275 & 330 gallons, and can store liquids with a specific gravity of up to 1.9. Our stainless steel totes come in standard sizes of 350 & 550 gallons, though we can custom build DOT/UN certified totes ranging in size anywhere from 119-gallons all the way up to 793-gallons.
Our reliable IBC rental service is ideal for customers looking to take advantage of the benefits of stainless steel IBCs without the large up-front capitalized cost. Renting is an ideal solution for changes in production or short-term liquid storage needs. Metano has two capacities available for rent, 350-gallons and 550-gallons. Our dedicated customer service team will help find the best IBC solution for your application.
As a full-service supplier of IBCs, Metano is committed to helping our customers with all their IBC needs, including rental, sales, maintenance and repair, transportation, and custom application design services.
