Bulk Bags (FIBC)

A Bulk Bag as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC) is commonly known as, is a cost-effective and optimal packaging solution for storing and transporting powdered, granulated, or bulk products. These bulk containers are reusable, highly reliable, and offer an ideal method for bulk material transportation. Their ease of loading and unloading makes them a versatile choice for various industries.

Currently, a large number of industries that are using bulk bags:

  • Petrochemical and chemical product manufacturers
  • Food product manufacturers (e.g. sugar, flour, spices, wheat, milk powder)
  • Construction products (e.g. cement, granite, sand)
  • Agricultural and related products (e.g. fertilizers, animal feed, grass).
  • Industrial applications (e.g. scrap materials, copper coils & slag, sludge waste)
  • Wood industries (e.g. firewood, lumber, planks)
  • And many more applications and industries being added ...

FIBC bulk bags, also known as just Bulk Bags, are crafted from premium polypropylene (PP) woven fabrics, fortified against UV degradation. With load capacities ranging from 500 kgs to 2000 kgs, they ensure secure transportation. Safety ratios of 5:1 or 6:1 (single use and multiple use, respectively) are incorporated, depending on bag design and size. For enhanced moisture protection, an optional LDPE inner liner can be included.

FIBC Bulk Bag containers are the backbone of bulk material handling nowadays, and understanding the nuanced variations in bulk bag design elements is crucial. The myriad possibilities as in Bulk Bags include a a vast array of inlets, outlets, handles, lifting options, and covers designed to meet the unique demands of a broad spectrum of industries.

Bulk Bag Inlets: Entry Points for Efficient Filling

The versatility of FIBC Bulk Bag starts at the point of entry. Tailor your FIBC Bulk Bag to your specific material and filing requirements with various inlet options:

  • Spout Top Bulk Bag: An optimal choice for fine powders, the spout top in the bulk bag ensures precise and controlled filling, preventing unnecessary spills and enhancing operational efficiency.
  • Duffle Top Bulk Bag: Featuring a wide opening, the duffle top on the bulk bag accelerates the filling process, making it ideal for bulk materials that demand quick and efficient loading.
  • Open Top Bulk Bag: Providing accessibility for manual filling, the open top on the bulk bag design caters to applications where flexibility and ease of use are paramount.
  • Conical Top Bulk Bag: Designed to promote smooth and controlled filling of materials with challenging flow characteristics, the conical top on the bulk bag minimises the risk of material bridging.

Bulk Bag Outlets: Precision Unloading for Every Material

Efficient unloading is facilitated by the careful selection of bulk bag outlet types, ensuring that materials are discharged smoothly and without waste:

  • Spout Bottom Bulk Bag: For applications demanding precision in material discharge, the spout bottom in the bulk bag directs the flow, minimising spillage and ensuring a controlled unloading process.
  • Flat Bottom Bulk Bag: Suitable for free-flowing materials, the flat bottom in the bulk bag allows for easy and complete discharge, streamlining the unloading operation.
  • Full Drop Bottom Bulk Bag: In scenarios where rapid and complete discharge is critical, the full drop bottom design in the bulk bag facilitates swift unloading, optimising productivity.
  • Conical Bottom Bulk Bag: Promoting the flow of materials with challenging characteristics, the conical bottom in the bulk bag prevents material stagnation and ensures efficient unloading.

Bulk Bag Handles: Tailoring FIBC for Optimal Handling

Bulk Bag Handles are the unsung heroes of FIBC Bulk Bags, transforming these containers into highly manoeuvrable and easy-to-handle assets:

  • Cross Corner Loop Bulk Bag: Strategically placed at the corners, cross corner loops on the bulk bag provide a robust grip for forklifts and cranes, streamlining the handling process.
  • Side-Seam Loop Bulk Bag: Ideal for situations where top lift is not feasible, side-seam loops on the bulk bag offer an alternative solution for efficient handling within your facility.
  • Stevedore Strap Bulk Bag: Designed with manual handling in mind, stevedore straps on the bulk bag offer a practical solution for carrying or relocating FIBC Bulk Bags within a workspace.
  • Sleeve Lift Bulk Bag: Offering a secure lift from the sides, sleeve lifts on the bulk bag provide additional flexibility in handling, particularly in applications with limited vertical clearance.

Bulk Bag Lifting: Adapting to Varied Lifting Equipment

Lifting options play a crucial role in ensuring the safe and secure transportation of FIBC Bulk Bags, with different configurations catering to various material handling equipment:

  • Single-Point Lift Bulk Bag: Simplifying the loading and unloading process, single-point lift FIBC Bulk Bag is compatible with single-hook lifting equipment, offering a practical solution for many applications.
  • Two-Point Lift Bulk Bag: Providing increased stability during lifting, two-point lift FIBC Bulk Bag is suitable for dual-hook lifting equipment, ensuring a secure and balanced transport.
  • Four-Point Lift Bulk Bag: Engineered for heavy-duty applications, the four-point lift bulk bag design distributes weight evenly, ensuring a safe and stable lift for larger loads.
  • Stevedore Lift Bulk Bag: Offering versatility in handling, stevedore lift FIBC Bulk Bag is designed for manual and mechanical handling, providing a flexible solution for various scenarios.

Bulk Bag Covers: Safeguarding Your Investment

Protecting the integrity of FIBC Bulk Bag contents during storage and transportation is paramount, and the right cover can make all the difference:

  • Bulk Bag Filling Spout Cover: Guard the bulk bag inlets during filling to prevent contamination and maintain material purity, ensuring the quality of your materials from the start.
  • Bulk Bag Top Cover: Shield bulk bag contents from environmental factors during transportation or storage, providing an additional layer of protection against the elements.
  • Bulk Bag Hood Cover: Extend the life of your FIBC Bulk Bag and protect the bulk bag against adverse weather conditions with a hood cover on a bulk bag, offering comprehensive shielding for your valuable materials.
  • Bulk Bag Conical Cover: Tailored for FIBC Bulk Bags with conical tops or bottoms, the conical cover on a bulk bag ensures a snug fit, protecting materials from contamination and external elements.
