Automatic IBC Drying System
The machine is designed to be loaded from one end and automatically transfer IBCs between each process station. The walking beam system provides the automatic transfer of each IBC and is pneumatically operated. The movement will only take place once an IBC is in the load position. A container is discharged at each transfer movement. The system operates from the control panel supplied with the facility to amend process time as required. A variable pneumatic timer up to five minutes delay is incorporated to control the dwell time at the five drying stages to ensure optimum drying results, an air operated alarm will sound briefly after time out to inform the operatives. A Galvanised steel manifold directs hot air to each of the air nozzles. The client is to provide the hot air supply unless requested. Additional line options include: Infeed and outfeed conveyors and hoists. Tilt stations for inspection and/or vacuuming. Operator platforms and walkways. Heat exchangers and fans.

Automatic IBC Washer
The Challenger automatic IBC wash system is designed to Wash, drain and rinse used IBC containers both internally and externally for re-use. Our walking beam type conveying system ensures precise container alignment at all of the treatment stations The system is built up from modular sections which can be easily expanded to incorporate additional equipment in the future. Module 1: An inclined in-feed twin line gravity roller conveyor fitted with a ‘pocket stop’ to locate the IBC. A drain tray with socket connection is fitted below. The IBC containers will be then be automatically picked up via our walking beam type conveyor from the ‘pocket stop’ situated within the following washing area. Module 2: A first stage hot caustic internal wash incorporating a tank of approximately 2,000 litres water capacity. The tank is fitted with a mud door for cleaning purposes and can be heated by means of electric or steam immersion heaters. The stainless steel cleaning head mounted on a gantry above the tank rotates in a cyclic operating mode that ensures full coverage of the inside of the container through its four wash jets. A bypass line piped to jets to spray over the top of the IBC…

IBC Mixer Agitator
IBC mixers are ideal solutions for products that need to be agitated before use in order to obtain homogeneous consistency, particularly for liquids prone to phase separation. Application These mixers are designed for IBC containers with 1,000 litres nominal capacity and ≥Dn 150 filling openings. Used for agitating, homogenizing and dissolving. ATEX explosion - proof versions are available on request.

IBC Reconditioning Line Specification
The Challenger Drumtech IBC Reprocessing Line is designed to wash, rinse and dry used IBC containers for re - use as a usable package generally as shown in the photograph above and the containers are transferred between stations by hand. Stage 1: Soiled IBC's are loaded by means of a forklift truck onto the in-feed platform where the valve is opened and the cap removed. Here the contents are allowed to drain into a sump beneath Stage 2: Where licensed disposal operators contain them for removal. Alternatively, they can be treated on site by the users own separating / treatment plant. The sump is independent from the other tanks and has mud doors to allow flushing out and sludge removal. Stage 2: Located above this sump, is used as an outside jetting area where labels are removed and soiling is washed off using a high pressure washing lance. A splashguard is incorporated at the rear of the platform. Stage 3: Uses a re-circulated hot caustic detergent wash inside the container to chemically clean the inside. The Head is positioned using pneumatics into the IBC which seal against overspill and on being given a signal operates the timed wash cycle. The…
