Product category: FIBC made of plastic
Big Bags (FIBCs) with 4 lifting loops
Big bags FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container) represent a very cost effective and ideal packaging solution for the transport and storage of dry bulk materials. They are normally made from flat woven polypropylene fabric (PP) or from circular (tubular) woven polypropylene fabrics in tubular form which may be in coated or non-coated form. Depending on the requirements for the safe working load (SWL) and the safety factor (SF) the weight of required fabrics in the construction of the bag will vary.
Big bags with 1 or 2-point lifting are simpler by design and more economical than FIBC (Big Bags) with 4 lifting loops. They are made of tubular fabric. This increases the strength and tensile strength of the fabric and improves the performance to weight ratio.
The lifting loops are protected with a sleeve. This sleeve is available in different colours. Different products can therefore be easily identified. The different colours of the sleeves on the lifting loops enables quicker product identification by the fork lift drivers and thus improves handing efficiency of the FIBCs.
The most common design for this FIBC is with open top, uncoated and with PE liner which can be fixed to the outer bag . Designs from Coated material and filling spout are also available. Depending on the type of use, there are different design options for the bottom of the FIBCs - square, star-shaped or with a single seam. For manual filling these FIBCs are pressed into bales on pallets. For automatic filling lines, the bags can be supplied wound onto rolls.

Liner for Big bags and octabins
Some bulk materials may cause build up of static energy during the filling and emptying process which can, in the bag itself or on its surface, cause an electrostatic discharge. If explosive dusts or gases are present in the vicinity during the filling or emptying process, there is a fire or explosion risk.
To avoid this risk, a grounded FIBC (big bag) is an ideal solution. Grounded FIBCs (big bags) are classified as Type C bags. To provide conductivity in these bags, typically carbon filaments are woven into the fabric. In food related applications, silver yarns are used as a replacement for carbon yarns to provide the necessary conductivity properties.
The fabric structure of FIBCs (big bags) consists either of flat or tubular (circular) form, coated or uncoated. To provide additional protection, design variants with conductive liners are available. Type C FIBC (big bags) need to be grounded during the filling and emptying process. Each grounded bag, manufactured ( at one of our manufacturing plants? Rather than at Cesur??) is conductivity tested for 100% conformity.
