How are FIBCs used to benefit different industries? Bulk bags offer a lot of advantages:
Quality seams and closable spouts:
For agricultural, chemical and mining products that come in the form of powders, companies need a container that ensures the fine powders will not leak out and blow away. FIBC bags help solve this problem. And in scenarios where powders are too fine for siftproof seams to be effective, FIBC liners can be inserted inside the bag to make sure even the finest powders stay where they belong. Closable spouts also help to keep powders securely in place and protect the environment.
With some nangerous products, such as petroleum products, the buildup of static charges within a jumbo bag is a serious problem because it poses grave risks to the workers who handle the bags. Fortunately, FIBC bags come in different safety types from B to D, each offering a different level of protection. Type B bags, though they are not antistatic bags, can safely transport dry flammable materials. Type C and D bags provide increasing levels of antistatic protection to help protect employees.
Food-grade quality: Not all FIBCs are produced with food-grade quality, but those are offer a huge boon to the food processing industry. Food-grade bulk bags ensure that food materials can be stored and transported to destination safely while remaining fresh, tasty and free from contamination.
Strict standards: In chemical industries, Super sacks offer an effective and safe way to transport pharmaceutical products. Strict regulations are in place as to how pharmaceutical products can be stored and transported. Often, these standards are just as strict or stricter than the standards for human-grade food products.
Strong construction: Heavy-duty cargoes such as chemicals, paint products, construction products, and the metals and minerals from mining, often require the highest quality in materials and construction of bulk bags. If you want to transport these products in materials such as plastic packaging, the bags would likely tear, leak, contaminate the environment and spoil the product. Heavy-duty buider bags that have been reinforced and certified to a certain safety factor help transport products safely to their destination.
Moisture and water resistance: Bulk bags are made from polypropylene, a type of thermoplastic material. A thermoplastic becomes soft and easy to mold at high temperatures but becomes solid and rigid as it cools. As a result, Jumbo bags are made of a protective, resistant material that keeps water out and provides an effective barrier against pests. This construction is especially important in agricultural, pet food and food-processing industries, whose products are often attractive to pests and where mold growth could spoil an entire shipment of product. Polypropylene big bags help ensure that food products get to their destination free from mold or moisture damage.
Eco-friendliness: Unlike single-use plastic packaging, some FIBC bags can be reused if their safety factor allows for multiple uses. Although FIBCs for certain chemical contaminants should be single-use bags, others that have carried inert materials such as agricultural products, pet food or human food products can often be reused in other industries. This reusability helps agricultural and food-processing companies run their businesses in environmentally friendly and sustainable ways.
Worker safety: Across all industries, worker safety is paramount. But lifting heavy bags puts excessive stress on employees’ backs and joints, potentially resulting in repetitive stress injuries. Big bags, which hold tons of cargoes and can safely be lifted using forklifts or other equipment, help reduce these workplace injuries and keep workers healthy, pain-free and productive.
