A flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC), bulk bag, big bag or super sack, is an industrial container made of flexible fabric that is designed for storing and transporting dry, flowable products, such as sand, fertilizer, and granules of plastic.
UN FIBC BAGS that are certified to handle products known to be hazardous by the United Nations. In the interest of people’s safety, environment control and materials security, the transport of dangerous goods has been regulated by a team of experts from the United Nations.
Cross corner bags have loops stitched on the body of the main fabric, sometimes with added with vertical fabric reinforcement. These bags are preferred when the shape of the lifting loop becomes important. This design is available with all sewing pattern, inlet/outlet design and various closure options.
The connection to ground or earth during filling and discharging is critical to the safe use of Type C FIBCs. As with any manual operation, ensuring interconnection and grounding of Type C FIBCs is subject to human error.
Baffle bags use internal baffles that allow the bag to fill to maximum capacity without expanding. Baffles are four extra fabric panels inside the bag that are sewn to each side they touch. The baffles help the bag stay square when filled – meaning there’s no bulge.
