Testing Procedures of FIBCs

Image
Cyclic Testing
Cyclic testing often focuses on drops, abrasions, spills, falls, impacts and other cases where the bag needs to stand up to repeated use throughout its lifetime. Cyclic load tests also happen for FIBC bags, ensuring they won’t tear, rip or deform under different loads in different environments.
Cyclic Top lift test requires the filled bag to be hanged from its lift loops on a test rig or other lifting devices as weight is added from the top. If any of the body fabric or lift loops of the bags are damaged in this process, the bag is Consider to fail the test.
Specific tests will have a two main criteria:
The FIBC bag must withstand the load test at a minimum required setting before a failure occurs with the setting determined by bag type and projected use. The FIBC bag can have no leakage of contents or breakage of the lifting devices like handles to the extent that the lifting device cannot support the load. For 5:1 SF, Cyclic top lift test requires the bags to go throu…

FIBC Builder Bag For your Construction Site

Image
Depending on the FIBC bags that you use they can hold up to 20kg to 3000 kg/bag. These bags make them the perfect option for construction materials being transported from one part of the country to another. Cement, gravel, pebbles, minerals, clay, slag, resin, and more are all materials able to be transported in FIBC bags.

Advantages of FIBC Builder Bag
Efficiency:
When You are in the construction business. You know that having the right tools for the job is essential to being able to perform at your highest level. Having the right bulk container for your operations is no different. Properly using FIBC bags can make your operation more efficient and effective.

Recyclable:
A great benefit of FIBC bags is that the commonly used material in these bags, namely virgin polypropylene can be recycled into other plastic products. Most bags can be recycled and there are some bags that can be reused as well. If you want to pick reusable bags, you must ask the FIBC manufacturer for bags with safe…

Recycling Process of FIBC Bag

Image
Collection:
The collection of recyclable materials is the first stage of recycling processes. The types of FIBC bag that are suitable for recycling include those used to store chemicals, fertilizers, grains, construction materials, pigments, and plastics. Bags for recycling are classified by different grades: Grade A (clean, bright white; colored stitching and handles allowed); Grade B (not as clean, mostly
white with minimal coloring) and Grade C (dirty or colored bags).
Sorting and cleaning:
Since FIBC bags serve a wide range of industries and uses, they need to be sorted into groups and Fully cleaned based on what they contained. FIBC bags are often used to hold materials that range from sand to fertilizer to hazardous chemicals, so proper cleaning is necessary.
During this phase, the recycling facility will also remove all zips and buttons.
Cutting: 
Once they have been cleaned and prepped, the bags go through a shredder, reducing them to small flakes of material. This phase makes …

History Of FIBC Bag

What Does FIBC Stand For?
FIBC stands for flexible intermediate bulk container, also known as bulk bags However, you may not be aware that there are also some specific requirements a bag must meet in order to be considered an FIBC. An FIBC cannot be handled manually when you fill it, and is made so you can lift it from the top with attached lift loops, straps or similar list-assist devices.
General FIBC History:

We don’t know exactly when FIBC bags originated, but it’s clear it happened in the late 1950s or early 1960s.There is some controversy as to where the first FIBCs were made; however, it is known that FIBCs were made in the United States, Europe, and Japan during the time period mentioned above. 
The first FIBC bags looked a little different. They were typically made from heavy-duty, PVC-coated nylon or polyester, and the cut sheets were welded together. The bags either contained lift swings, which were integrated into the container, or attached to a pallet. These bags were very ru…

Lined FIBCs, FIBC Liners, and Coated FIBCs

Image
Lined FIBC Bags: 

Companies can purchase poly liners for FIBC bags and insert them into any FIBC. However, you can also purchase bags that come with liners already built into the woven polypropylene. The advantage to buying FIBC bags with liners installed is the many options you have. There are 4 main types of lined FIBCs that we outline in this article. Having these different options allows lined bags to be used with a greater variety of products and applications.
The largest disadvantage to using pre-lined bags is that the liners are usually either sewn into the seams of the bag or tabbed to the bag’s material and cannot be removed. This offers slightly less flexibility for re-use when compared to using removable poly liners.

Coated FIBC Bags:

A coated FIBC is constructed similarly to a standard FIBC however, before the bag is sewn together, an additional polypropylene film is added to the bag’s fabric sealing the small gaps in the poly weaves. This film can be added to the inside o…

Sandbag for Flood Control

Image
Traditionally, stacking 40-to 60-pound sandbags has been the preferred method for emergency flood control due to their wide availability and the ease-of-use, but using big bags are now a recognized method of controlling flooding and some emergency flooding businesses are now using bulk bags exclusively for flood prevention, controlling flood waters, and even building temporary dams. FIBC Silvassa flood control bags.

Coated bags are made with 100% polypropylene offering the same light, yet extremely strong tear resistant security that traditional sandbags offer, but allow emergency crews to use one bag in place of dozens of traditional sandbags. FIBCs used for flood control also have a coating which is a water resistant, and UV protection (much like traditional sandbags) that helps protect the bag from breaking down when exposed to ultraviolet rays such as sunlight. FIBC Silvassa big bags used for flood control/prevention are typically filled with sand, much like traditional sandbags,…
