A Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC), bulk bag, or jumbo bag, is an industrial container made of flexible fabric, either coated or non-coated, to be designed as economical and ideal packing used for the storage & transportation of powdered, granulated or bulk products. General load capacity may contain up to 2000kgs of material, depending on the bag design.
Currently, industries that are using bulk bags are:-
Bycom FIBC bags are manufactured by quality materials, that are stabilised against UV degradation. Bycom FIBC bag can be customized to your requirement, from contain load capacities between 500kgs to 2000kgs, with safety of either 3:1, 5:1 or 6:1. Optional LDPE inner liner can be included to provide additional protection against moisture ingress. Special liners such as oxygen barrier EVOH liner, aluminium foil liner etc are also available. Bycom FIBC bags are came with different bag types and various designs to accommodate your packing needs.
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.
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:
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.
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|
(Note : Packaging group 1 with UN symbol X is not applicable to FIBCs, but only to rigid IBCs.)
