Type B FIBCs are made from insulating fabric that have a low breakdown voltage (less than 6KV) to prevent an incident where highly energetic, and dangerous propagating brush discharges (PBD) occur. PBD can ignite dust-air mixtures and flammable gases and solvent vapors in the surrounding environment. EPP manufactures these bags using plain polypropylene or other non-conductive material, and like Type A bulk bags these bags do not have any mechanism for dissipating static electricity.
Type B FIBC bags are perfect for the transportation of powders which are dry and flammable.
Safe use for type B bulk bags:
Type B bags may be used in the presence of the combustible dusts with MIE of greater than 3mJ, but only in the absence of flammable vapors of gases.
Labeling Requirements for Type B Bulk Bags
Type B FIBC labels cannot be made from material with surface resistivity less than 1.0 x 109 Ohm. (The electrical resistance of an object is a measure of its opposition to the flow of electric current.).
Type B bags Label Must State:
Permitted in dust zones with MIE > 3 mJ
Electrical property may be affected by general usage, contamination and reconditioning
All conductive objects including personnel shall be earthed during FIBC filling and emptying operations.
Example of a Type B Label:
