Why FIBC bags are safe for material storage & transport

When you load and transport large amounts of stone, gravel, soil, debris and other various construction materials, it’s important that the bulk container is very durable and extremely safe to use. When used properly, FIBCs are an extremely safe way to transport and store construction materials. FIBCs are manufactured using woven polypropylene creating an incredibly strong and flexible bulk container perfect for most construction applications.

Here is one story that why FIBC bags are safe for your material storage & transport.

One day Truck was going for material shipment with fibc bag.

Suddenly the track falls into the drain water from the road side.

The truck was fully damage and FIBC bags are also fall into the drain water 

From this heavy accident truck is fully damage but the material and the FIBC bags are completely safe.We take out the fibc bag from the drain water with help of hydra.

And load that bags in to other truck for shipment.

Using Big Bags for Flood Control

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,…

Safety Work Load & Safety Factor of FIBCs

FIBC are designed for a specific Safety Work load (SWL). Common SWLs are 500kg, 1000kg, 1200kg, 1250kg, 1500kg or 2000kg. The SWL is determined by the customer. Often the Safety work load is chosen to achieve a maximal load weight on a truck. Depending on the size of the FIBC bag they often have a SWL of 1000 or 1250kg. A higher SWL results in stronger FIBC fabric used.

1. One -time used FIBC bags
Some woven polypropylene FIBC bags are manufactured for one-time use. These one-time use bags are rated at a 5:1 safety factor (SF) meaning that the FIBC bag did burst only after reaching five times its safety work load (SWL) in the test rig. A 1000kg FIBC bag did therefore burst on more than 5t load. A 2000kg FIBC bag bursts after 10t load in the test rig.

One-time FIBC bags cannot be “repaired”. It’s not allowed to reuse these FIBC bags.

2. Multi trip FIBC bags

UN FIBC bags Labeling & there identification

UN bags use a Special bag labeling system that allows the user to track the origin, materials, manufacturer, coating, and other important attributes of the individual UN bag. This labeling system is extremely important to safe handling, filling, and use of a UN bag.

Below is a detail of what the UN bag label looks and importance of each Label:
United Nations Packaging Logo.Code number designating FIBC design type.Capital letter identifying the performance standard under which the design type has been successfully tested.The numerical month and year of manufacture.Country authorizing allocation of the mark.The name and address or symbol of the manufacturer or the approval agency.The stacking test load in kg.Maximum gross mass. 

Hazardous Materials Labels Class 4.1, flammable solid. Self-adhesive Hazardous Materials Shipping Labels for shipments of Hazardous Materials (Dangerous Goods) in accordance with safety standards when shipping dangerous goods.

Benefit of Using Polyethylene Liners in FIBCs

FIBCs are re-usable, they are used multiple times to ship and store non-hazardous chemicals and food material. FIBCs offer indispensable in logistics industry owing to the cost-efficiency and convenience. To avoid such situations and to increase, the efficiency of FIBCs, manufacturers now used a layer of polyethylene liner in the FIBC. FIBC bag liners are now much in demand especially for transporting fine powdery material besides food and pharma-grade products.

Installing polyethylene liners for FIBC is to provide protection to the FIBC bag and to the products inside the bag. there are many other benefits of using FIBCs with liners:

Benefit of Using Polyethylene Liners in FIBCs Stop contamination as liners make FIBC bags almost impenetrableStop powdery substances from sifting through FIBCs. In FIBCs individual strands of polypropylene are woven together, and thus, powdery substances are likely to sift through the bag.Stop leaksStop dust and moisture from shipping into the bag.FIBC li…

Using FIBC Bags to Transport Malted Barley

FIBCs are proven to be effective for the logistics operations of malting industry. As the craft brew industry has seen exponential growth in the last ten year, a demand for specialty malted barley has increased exponentially causing malters are looking to FIBCs as a better way to transport specialty malted barley.

Here we discuss why malting industry is doing away with the use of traditional 25kg bags and relying so much on FIBC bags, FIBCs as an economic and efficient way to transporting and transporting their products.
