FIBC Bulk Bag

Bulk bag also known as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC) or jumbo bag or 1 ton bag, is economical and ideal packing used for the storage & transportation of powdered, granulated or bulk products.

Currently, industries that are using bulk bags are:-

  • Petrochemical & chemical products manufacturers (e.g. PVC resins, soda ash, phenolic resins)
  • Food manufacturers (e.g. sugar, flour, spices, wheat, milk powder)
  • Quarries & construction related (e.g. cement, granite, sand)
  • Agricultural related products (e.g. fertilizers, animal feed, grass)
  • Industrial applications (e.g. scrap materials, copper coils & slag, sludge waste)

Bycom bulk bags are manufactured by polypropylene woven fabrics, that are stabilised against UV degradation. Each bulk bag can contain load capacities between 500kgs to 2000kgs with safety of 5:1 or 6:1, depending on the bag design and size. Optional LDPE inner liner can be included to provide additional protection against moisture ingress. Special liners such as food grade approved liner, oxygen barrier EVOH liner etc are also available.

Oxygen Measurement Technologies

oxydot oxydot-check-2

Bycom had obtained the non-invasive oxygen measurement systems and permeation testing solution and applied it successfully in our packaging products. The measurement system is unique not only for its ability to measure oxygen non-invasively, but also for its ability to measure oxygen in headspace as well as dissolved in liquids. It is an optical system that can measure oxygen concentration within packages that are transparent, semi-transparent, and translucent. This technology relies on a non-invasive, light sensitive, oxygen sensor. Placed the sensor in our packaging products prior to filling, measurements are achieved simply with a fiber-optic reader pen from outside the package.

Complies With ASTM F2714-08 For Headspace Analysis As Well As ASTM F3136-15 For Film Permeation/OTR.

 

Design of Bag

Bycom bulk bags come in a variety of different designs and sizes to suit your needs. Please select a suitable bag design for your product from the various bag designs below:

Type Of FIBC Bag

Electrostatic FIBCs

Currently, there are four types of FIBCs (A, B, C and D) are in use according to their ability of charge dissipation and/or limiting the energy of possible discharges. This is to controll static electricity, which is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. When FIBC bags are rapidly filled and discharged, the flowing movement of finely powdered substances can cause a buildup of static electricity. For avoidance of electrostatic-ignition hazard, removing or preventing an electrical charge is critical in the packaging of flammable or combustible materials or in an environment where combustible dust may be present.

Dangerous Goods FIBC bags (UN Bag)

The transportation of hazardous goods is regulated worldwide by a team of experts from the United Nations. They have established directives to prevent accidents, injuries and damage to property and not least to protect  public health and prevent pollution.

There are four types of FIBCs for dangerous goods made from woven plastics:

13H1 = Woven PP without coating and without liner.
13H2 = Woven PP, coated and without liner.
13H3 =  Woven PP, uncoated and with liner.
13H4 = Woven PP, coated and with liner.

Dangerous products are classified by the United Nations by a unique UN product number. These product numbers and corresponding packaging group classifications can be found in the ‘orange book’.

Degree of Danger Packing Group UN Symbol Max. Volume
High I X 1,5 m3
Medium II Y 3 m3
Low III Z 3 m3

(Note : Packaging group 1 with UN symbol X is not applicable to FIBCs, but only to rigid IBCs.)
