ALC – Expertise Meets Innovation

ALC is renowned for its innovative approach to providing liquid packaging liner solutions and has acquired significant expertise and know-how across a broad range of industry sectors through servicing customers across the globe.
With its on-site laboratory, ALC liner solutions and applications are regularly tested to ensure optimal performance delivery. This includes testing the durability and resilience of all films, as well as approximating the viscosity levels of different liquid products. This ensures accurate testing of different liner films and a high level of quality across all liquid packaging solutions, whether for low or high viscosity as well as aseptic liquid products.

What is an IBC?

The ALC Liquid packaging liner range is custom designed for use with an Intermediate Bulk Container – or IBC (also known as a “Tote”). An IBC is a reusable container, typically pallet mounted, that is used for storing and transporting bulk liquids and powders, semi-solids, pastes, or even solids. IBC’s are either flexible (collapsible) or rigid and the term “‘intermediate’ comes from the volume that intermediate bulk containers carry, which usually falls between 1000L and 1 250L compared to that of tanks and drums.

Why Do IBC’s exist?

Rigid containers, such as drums and stainless steel containers are often returned to source empty resulting in double the transport cost per liter Returned rigid containers also require extensive and expensive cleaning before refilling Collapsible IBCs however, are more space efficient using 60% less space when stored or transported empty. In addition, the same collapsible IBC, together with the ALC liner range can be used for a variety of products and are easy to fill and decant.

Benefits of IBCs vs Drums

• IBC’s have greater storage capacity with an IBC taking up to 1 250 L/330 Gallons on one pallet space compared to four drums that would require the same space, but only store 800 L/ 220 Gallons
• IBC’s can be moved freely and without expensive pallets and shrink wrap and can be stacked up to five high
• IBC’s can be used multiple times, while drums are generally single-use-only,
reducing packing waste from 96 Kg to 2.5 Kg
• IBC totes, when used with the ALC AIRMAX high-viscosity liner range, eliminates product
waste by draining completely, while drums typically collect residual product
