Storing FIBC Big Bags

Date: 14th March 2017

Bulk bags or FIBCs (flexible intermediate bulk containers) are a highly versatile type of industrial packaging which can be used for transporting a huge variety of goods, from fertiliser to flour, and gravel to grain.

Strong and long-lasting, they are an increasingly popular form of industrial packaging. As with other types of packaging, though, care should be taken when filling, moving and storing them to ensure they and the goods they contain remain in good condition.

The first thing to remember, as with most industrial processes, is to always read and adhere to any instructions provided with your bulk bags. The manufacturers instructions will include information on how to handle your particular type of bulk bag and any health and safety issues which may need to be considered.

Storing bulk bags correctly is an important issue. If they are kept in the wrong conditions, or stored incorrectly, both they and the goods they contain could be damaged, meaning unnecessary cost implications for the company involved.

If you have to stack your bulk bags, they should be done in one of two different ways: in a pyramid, or supported.

When stacking in a pyramid, ensure that each bulk bag is resting on at least four other bags. This will create a strong, stable pyramid of bags which will support each other.

The other method involves using at the very least, two walls, within which the bulk bags are contained. When using this method, care must be taken to ensure there are no gaps between bags, that they are stacked in a stable manner and that the walls are strong enough to contain the weight of the bags and their contents.

If you are stacking bags on top of pallets, check before you start that the pallets are both large enough and strong enough to accommodate the bags.

Wherever the bags are being stored, such as in a warehouse, it is important to make sure there are no sharp edges or stones underneath, which could tear the fabric of the bags and spill or damage the contents.

It is also essential to ensure the bags are handled in the correct manner, using the handles supplied and without any sudden stops or starts which could dislodge contents or tear the bags.

Whether your bags are full or empty, ensuring they are kept safe from the ravages of the Great British weather is also important. Because they are made of fabric, their material can be damaged by exposure to moisture over time, so keeping them dry is a good idea, even when they do not contain goods.

At the other extreme of the weather spectrum, overexposure to sunlight (specifically, the harmful UV rays) is liable to weaken the bulk bags fabric over a long period of time. So storing bags inside is the best way of ensuring they last as long as possible.

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.
