Carbon Steel Totes

Hoover also manufactures a line of Liquitote Carbon Steel storage tanks. Carbon steel IBCs are less expensive than stainless steel IBC’s and are extremely impact resistant and durable and are an ideal for the oil and lubricants industry and a non-corrosive chemical environments.

Carbon steel totes are a lighter and less expensive alternative to stainless steel storage tanks. While they are corrosion resistant, carbon IBCs are more susceptible to rust than stainless steel IBCs. All steel IBCs are re-useable, allow easy filling and dispensing, and are environmentally friendly as they reduce clean-up and disposal concerns. Carbon steel is a lighter and less expensive alternative to stainless steel. It is a metal alloy made up of a combination of two elements, iron and carbon.

Other elements are present but in quantities too small to affect the properties of the alloy. Carbon is the principal hardening and strengthening element in the steel. The more carbon in the alloy, the greater the strength of the steel. Due to its hardness, carbon steel is extremely durable and impact resistant. While it is corrosion resistant, it isn’t as resistant to rust as is stainless steel. It is also not as compatible with as many materials as is stainless steel.

Carbon steel characteristics:

  • Corrosion resistance, outside painted coating
  • Great strength
  • High fatigue strength
  • Low weight
  • Toughness
