According to the Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container Association (FIBC), reuse of FIBCs should be carried out within a closed-loop system. In other words, it needs to reused to handle the same product, within the same application for which it was originally built. In this manner, you can minimise contamination of any kind. But wait, not all FIBCs can be reused! Most flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs) built with a standard rating of 5:1 are

Difference between Standard FIBC and Baffle Bags

Date: 14th March 2017

What are Standard FIBC Bags?

Standard FIBC bags generally have regular dimensions of 1/2 cubic meter, 1/3 cubic meter and 1 cubic meter. Standard dimensions generally are 65x65x75 cm, 80x80x80 cm and 90x90x110 cm. They usually come with different types of loops such as cross-corner loops, slings and standard loops.

When filled to capacity, Standard FIBC bags tend to become a little pear shaped because their contents dont stay in place very easily unlike Baffle FIBC bags. The sides of these standard FIBCs are all sewn and they come in many different fabrics, sizes, loops, styles, tops and bottoms. They are widely used in the industry for transporting a number of different types of materials. (For more information about FIBC Bags visit: VPIL FIBC Baffle Bags)

What are Baffle FIBC Bags?

Baffle bags are a type of Bulk bag or Jumbo bag and belong to the FIBC category. They are perfect option if youre operating under the burden of limited space for storage of these FIBC bags.

Baffle FIBC bags have baffles in the corners which basically help the bags to retain their cubic shape once filled with material. They keep the bulk bag square shaped and stop them from bulging. Also, the strong outer layer of the bag protects it from being punctured and causing the material to leak out. They cut down on storage space and also transportation costs get reduced by up to 30% as compared to standard FIBCs bags. Baffle bags are mainly used for the storage and transportation of barley, corn and soybean.

What are the significant differences between the two?

Baffle bags get stacked neater:Standard FIBC bags tend to bulge once they are filled to capacity with the materials to be transported. They can be stacked but depending on the contents, its not always a neat process. Baffle bags have baffles which are basically panels of fabric on each side of the bag which do not allow it to get out of shape even when full. Hence, Baffle FIBC bags are much more stable and firmer, and get stacked very neatly.

Baffle bags stay in shape:Baffle FIBC bags have internal panels of fabric called baffles which are attached to each side of the bag with stitches. These baffles ensure that the bags stay in their cubic shape even when they are filled to maximum capacity unlike standard FIBCs.

Baffle FIBCs save space:Since, these bags retain their shape even when full and are perfect for stacking while storing and transporting materials, they are more compact than their counterparts. Hence, they are often preferred over Standard FIBC bags.

Both Baffle and Standard FIBCs are used for different materials:A standard FIBC bag which is filled to capacity with material to be stored or transported tends to bulge a lot. This does not act as much of a disadvantage when it comes to certain materials like gravel and sand. Baffle FIBC bags are generally made use of to store and transport fine materials like pharmaceuticals and flour. These bags do not bulge and stand erect which makes them look neater and more organized when stacked. This also makes them easier to handle than Standard FIBC bags.
