Due to hazards of certain regulated materials, it is Dale Chesser, LLC’s. strict policy that no IBC’s entering our facility will be recertified without first being thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Each IBC will be inspected once entering our facility and an assessment will be made of each to determine what parts and labor issues will be needed. This process is used for production scheduling and parts determination. This documentation will be made available to a customer should it be requested.

Dale Chesser, LLC’s. recertification process begins with a complete cleaning of the inside and outside of the IBC. All exterior labels are removed as part of the cleaning process. This cleaning process consists of any or all of the following: cold water, hot water, steam, and chemical cleaning agents. The valve and lid are removed prior to cleaning and are cleaned separately by hand and/or machinery. If the valve and lid are serviceable after the cleaning process, the valve and lid will then be replaced. The IBC is again inspected and completely dried of all condensation. The IBC is then tested in accordance with CFR 49 Section 180.352 – Requirements for retest and inspection of IBC’s. Word for word documentation on CFR 49 Section 180-352 is available upon request.
