1000L IBC Hydrogen Peroxide
Many VARIBOX Full Containment and Single Containment Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are filled with 1000L IBC Hydrogen peroxide (H202). The truly reusable VARIBOX IBCs are often used for the safe transport and storage of Hydrogen peroxide. The VARIBOX is suited for all concentrations up to 60%. The formula for Hydrogen peroxide. is H2O2 and you can find it in the ADR under UN 2014 for concentrations of 20% to 60% or UN 2984 (8%-20%). The advised version of the VARIBOX for this chemical is VITON. A pressure relief vent is required!
1000L IBC Hydrogen Peroxide
The VARIBOX containers are well-known for their safe transport and storage of the powerful Hydrogen Peroxide. An important fact about this chemical is that it is an unstable dangerous good and it will slowly decompose into water and oxygen. Higher temperatures and also light will accelerate the decomposition. When this reaction happens it will release heat. Avoid any contact with organic materials and many metals, as they may strongly accelerate the decomposition. Wood, paper, or cotton may even start to burn when in contact with hydrogen peroxide.
So, to make sure that this potential dangerous reaction will not happen, all the intermediate bulk containers of the VARIBOX have a closed system. This means that when correctly using the Safeline system or VARIBOX valve, contact between Hydrogen peroxide and other potentially dangerous contact materials is avoided. And with the fully enclosed VARIBOX or the VARIBOX SC with a black inner bottle the decomposition from light is avoided. These are important safety benefits of the VARIBOX.
Using Hydrogen Peroxide in the safest possible way
The safest IBCs to transport and store dangerous substances are the VARIBOX containers. With approvals like UN and DIBt, the containers will help customers and users of Hydogen Peroxide to meet the regulations in their country. What is this chemical used for? As it’s a good disinfectant you will use Hydrogen peroxide in applications like (waste)water treatment and cleaning. Another market for this chemical is the industry for paper and pulp where it’s used as a bleach. As you can see, a lot of applications for this chemical. By using this chemical in combination with the VARIBOX, customers and users are choosing for a safe and sustainable solution.
Use Viton for Hydrogen Peroxide
We advise you to choose the Viton version of the VARIBOX intermediate bulk container for this chemical substance for optimal safety. Another important note when using the VARIBOX for hydrogen peroxide: a pressure relief vent is mandatory. As mentioned in the first paragraph, through its characteristics this chemical can build up pressure. The special pressure relief vent will make sure that the container releases the built-up pressure. The key characteristics of this chemical substance are:
- Formula H2O2
- CAS number 7722-84-1
- UN number 2014 or UN 2984
- ADR class 5.1
- ADR Packaging Group II
