Greenville, SC, April 2018: Black Forest Container Systems, LLC, is proud to announce the launch their new offering:  Teflon Lined UN31A Intermediate Bulk Container.   This new Teflon lined UN31A IBC allows for shipping/transport of UN required products.   “With this new design we are offering the shipper/filler to use our IBC’s very corrosive products not compatible with metal IBC’s.” said Tom Leftwich Co-Owner of Black Forest Container Systems, “Offering transport solutions for more hazardous products.”

Enhancements include:

  • ETFE Lined -  modified; mechanical toughness and outstanding chemical resistance,  service temperatures range from -20°F (-29°C) to 300°F (230°C)
  • Fitting  Options - Teflon valving, diptubes, special lined 3-piece ball valve.
  • Higher Vapor Pressure Product -

    Returnable, reusable containers are designed for high vapor pressure products, are capable of maintaining a nitrogen blanket, and are suitable for pressure filling and dispensing of products. 
    Our UN31A bulk IBCs have similar features and benefits to our smaller UN1A1 containers.
    This allows the shipper/filler to use our cylindrical IBCs filled with higher vapor pressure rated products than standard IBCs.
