Industry Trends – IBC mixing


HD IBC 7500 F50t downWith the continuing focus on system improvement and cost reduction, more and more manufacturers are recognising that reducing the number of process stages in their product cycle can deliver significant benefits.

When IBCs were first introduced in the mid 1990s, they were seen as an ideal transport container and storage solution but for any material processing, product was transferred to a dedicated mixing vessel.   More recently there has been a trend towards product mixing directly in IBCs bringing a range of efficiency improvements:

  • Reduced capital outlay
  • Faster throughputSemi-automatic-filling-systems
  • Reduced stock holding/working capital
  • Reduced cleaning time
  • Reduced waste
  • Quicker delivery
  • Happier customers!

The growth in IBC mixing has led to the development of a number of products to help customers achieve maximum benefit:

  • Clean in place systemsHD IBC 7500 F50t up
  • In-line mixers
  • Drum mixers
  • IBC mixers

The demand for scalable samples mixes whilst maintaining production on bulk mixers has also led to the development of a range of laboratory mixers. This is an important element of achieving the best efficiency improvements.


During the first quarter of 2016 Greaves have experienced a 5 fold increase in our already popular IBC mixer range. This mixer unit delivers all the benefits listed above. See here for full details
