Selecting The Right Jumbo Bag Dimensions-Rishi FIBC Solutions Pvt Ltd

Selecting The Right Jumbo Bag Dimensions

Businesses around globe dealing in bulk transportation of products often come across serious challenges related to storage of products during the process of transit. This majorly happens because of size and material issues of packaging along with the other operational challenges. In order to overcome these challenges the invention of jumbo bags was made to resolve these transit issues. These jumbo bags come in all shapes and size along with different variety of materials and specifications to select from.

Let’s take a look at what Jumbo bags are and things to look out for before selecting the right one to serve your business purpose.

What are Jumbo Bags?

Jumbo bags are large size intermediate flexible bulk containers used for the purpose of storing and transportation of materials. They are made from woven polypropylene fabric and sustainable reusable solution for storage and transportation of bulk amount of product. The Jumbo bags are usually extremely durable in nature and hence are long lasting in nature. This allows industries to reduce wastage behind packaging solution providing them to benefit from cost point of view and bring down the impact on environment that are caused by the usage of regular plastic bags. Thus clearly reflecting how jumbo bags contribute as a perfect solution to industries when it comes to storage and transportation of bulk materials.

However in spite of these large scale advantages that the usage of Jumbo bags provide there are certain things industries should take into account in order to select the right dimension when opting to use jumbo bags for the purpose of storage and transportation they are as follow:

Material of the Product

The choice of material for the bags is critical importance depending on the type of materials that are to be stored inside the bag. It is because in spite of weight carrying capacity of the bags being identical, some materials stored in the bags are reactive towards it or may tear the bag because of its surface contact not being compatible with the material of the bags. It is because of this reason selecting the right material of the bag is of high importance depending on the type of material that is to be stored or transported using the jumbo bags.

Determination of Size

The determination of the ideal size for your use depends on the following major factors:

  • Types of Material to be stored in the bag for transportation
  • The space of the location where the bags are stored after being filled
  • The size of the container in which the bags will be transported to other destination
  • How the bags will be placed in the container when set for transportation

It is based on these four major considerations the size of your bag should be determined before making a purchase for jumbo bag. This would allow you to store a larger quantity of material, without having to face the trouble of storage and transit issues.

Other Important Specifications

Before deciding on the right size of Jumbo bags based on the above two important factors there are some more specifications that should be taken into account to when selecting right dimension jumbo bags for industrial purpose. They are as follow:

Lifting Loop

These are hoops sewn, woven or stitched to the bags and are used for the purpose of lifting the bags or moving it from one place to another. Depending on the type of lifting mechanism you industry has selecting the right size of lifting loop is important for efficient operational process.

Filing Inlet

This is another major specification that should be taken into account when purchasing a jumbo bag. It is because depending on the type of product that will be loaded into the jumbo bag the size of filing inlet varies. As it defines way, type and method the product will be loaded into the bags. For example loading sand into jumbo bag can have smaller filing inlet but stone would require larger filing inlet. It is because of this reason defining the size of filing inlet is extremely important when selecting right dimension jumbo bags to serve your purpose.

Discharge Outlet

Similar to filing inlet defining the size of discharge outlet of jumbo bags are equally important for operational purpose. So depending on the types of materials that will be stored and transported along with the methods that will be used for the purpose of discharging the material the discharge outlet size should be determined.

These three specifications have their own dimensions and hence it is important to select these dimensions wisely when investing in jumbo bags is equally important for the business.

Guidelines for Shipping Hides in Containers-Rishi FIBC Solutions

Guidelines for Shipping Hides in Containers

Transportation of any item on an ocean liner is unsafe. The main reason behind this is the cruel climate that is displayed by the ocean and along with it rides the risk of unpredictability that transportation of product across ocean displays. This risk factors increases multifold when it comes to transportation of hides in shipping containers. One of the major reason behind this is the hides itself are hazardous in nature unless it is chemically processed for the final use. In case of transportation of hides they are usually send in brine and are mostly not chemically processed. In an event of transporting hides abroad, it is important to ensure development of thorough protection plan that will not only bring down the risk factor related to loss of hides but also to the loss that may happen because of the leakage in container carrying hides, pertaining to its hazardous nature. It is because leakage of containers carrying hides will not only increase service cost related to cleaning process but also can result in huge cost pertaining to damages on ship from leakage along with hazard it possess to the people on the container liner. It is because of this reason paving a thorough guideline for shipping hides is extremely important for a business, dealing with the product.

Let’s take a look at what Hides are and how it can affect shipping process, so that a thorough guideline can be materialized based on it!

What are Hides?

Hides are animal skin treated for human use. Hides include leather from cattle and other livestock animals, Snake Skins for shoes, alligator skins, and fashion accessories and furs from wild cats, bears and minks. In some areas, leather is produced on a small industrial scale or domestic level, but most leather making is done on a large scale. Various tannins are used for this purpose. Animal hides are stretched, dried and tanned. It is more cost-effective today to raise animals in captivity and then kill them. Large farms exist to raise mink and rabbit for fur while much fox, lynx, wolf and other animals are trapped for fur.

How Hides are sent during Transportation

Hides are shipped in bundles, bales, barrels, cask, bags, loose or palletized in freight containers. Any animal hide is of fibrous texture and from the moment of slaughter is liable to decomposition due to bacterial action. This decomposition is only completely stopped when the hide is tanned, but can be halted temporarily by salting and/or drying. Hides are shipped as Dry-Salted, Dry and Wet-Salted (Brine-Cured). These methods of preservation are effective for fairly long periods, provided that the curing or drying has been satisfactorily carried out, and conditions of storage and transit have not caused the curing or drying to become ineffective. One of biggest risk factor that transportation of hide contains comes from brine cured hides. The understanding of different risk related to brine cured hide and the impact it can have during transportation are listed below.

Risk with Transportation of Hides

The risks with transportation of hides in containers are thoroughly based on improperly treated or inappropriately stowed of the hides. The problem of wet hides carried in shipping containers is predominately due to the run-off of excess brine. This can often result in catastrophic ending for the shipping containers or the liners carrying it. Below listed are some of the major risk factors related to transportation of Hides:

  • Leakage of brine from container can give rise accidents based on possibility of slipping
  • Leakage of brine can have end result of damaging the container itself because of the salt’s corrosive nature
  • During transportation of hides, leakage of brine can have an offensive odor and could possibly be deemed a health hazard to people on the board
  • When the leakage of brine comes in contact with the interior of the container it can cause permanent damage of metal surfaces and rubber seals and contamination of timber floors.
  • Lastly leakages of brine from containers carrying hides may contaminate containers stowed underneath and corrode the ship’s decks and fittings.

These risk factors clearly showcase the possible after effect of transporting hides unless proper care and necessary measures are taken, to control it.

Impact of Risk related to Transportation of Hides

Based on the identified risk factors it is thoroughly clear the large scale negative effect transportation of hides can have. In order to avoid such risk measures must be taken to avoid all possible leakage during hides’ transportation; else it can have grave impact on the business, some of which are as follow:

  • Organization might have to pay for accident if any caused by the leakage
  • If the leakage of brine from the container corrodes the metal surface, shipping companies can charge the organization sending the material
  • Due to hazardous nature of brine, if leakage causes health hazard, the business might face penalty from legal stature. This may be pertaining to safety of human’s on board along with being penalized financially for damage or medical expenditure of people suffering due to leakage.
  • Brine’s corrosive nature can end up damaging timber flooring of the ship along with other metal, or rubber structure, which can result in the organization to pay heavy fines for damages
  • If hides carrying containers are stored above other containers from different business and leakage of brine causes damages to those cargos, then from legal stature the other organization can press financial penalty
  • Lastly the organization might have to pay for the cost of cleaning up the brine affecting them financially.

These impact clearly highlights the significant economic impact transportation of hides can have on the business. Therefore it is of prime importance to take necessary measures in order to avoid such risk and impact that transportation of hides carry with itself. Below listed are minimal measures that can be taken by an organization to avoid such risk during transportation of hides.

Measures to be taken during Transportation of Hides

In order to avoid the possible risk and the impact transportation of hides can have below listed are some of important measures that should be rigorously followed:

Inspecting the Container

Before packaging of hides for purpose of transportation it is very important to inspect the internal parts of the containers. So that any sharp protrusions or any debris, which may puncture or damage the polythene liner could be avoided. This can help the transported cargo hides from leakage during the voyage.

Lining of the Container

In order to avoid leakage the next step is placing a liner inside the container. The liner should be unfolded and spread out inside the container. This will help in creating a sewn box form. The box formation highlights the liner being placed at the end of the container and then drawn all the way to the front wall. After that excess liner should be protruding 2.4m out of the doors on the open end. This will form a full envelope around the cargo to capture any moisture that originates from the cargo and prevent leakage. Further to secure the hide transit within the liner it is better to establish a fixing point on the side walls. To secure and create a proper fixing point it is better to establish a bail lash or 4mm rope on the internal three side of the container. This rope will run through the lashing points around the top of the container and tied off ensuring that the lash is tight. After threading plastic bungee clips through the lashing rings of the liner, starting at the front wall, the liner is clipped onto the lashing. Once the liner walls are connected to the lashing the floor of the liner should be spread out evenly and pushed into the corner of the container. This would ensure that the hides are thoroughly protected from all sides within the container, bringing down the possibility of it leaking to a very thin margin.

Placing an Absorbent Material

After placing the liner across the container: that includes the floor and three sides of the wall, it suggestible to place absorbent material on the floor of the container. The absorbent material may be fine grade absorbent sawdust to effectively soak up excess brine. However, avoiding coarse sawdust or wood shavings are suggested due to their mediocre absorbent qualities. This would ensure even if the brine spill happens on the floor inside the container it gets absorbed within the container, cutting down on all possibilities of leakage out of the container.

If these measures are thoroughly followed, it would ensure development of a safe structure that would counter balance the risk and impact associated with transportation of hides. If you are into hide business and looking for the perfect solution for your hide transportation, get in touch us, we would be happy to help you.

Misunderstandings About Food Grade Bulk Bags-Rishi FIBC Solutions

Misunderstandings About Food Grade Bulk Bags

There are now stricter government regulations for food safety in the packaging industry. Besides there are several guidelines and third-party accreditations that manufacturers and retailers are required to follow. Naturally, there’s bound to be some confusion and misunderstandings. Here we attempt to debunk some myths surrounding food grade bulk bags.

Myth 1: You should look for only FDA approved bags

Fact: FDA approved bags do not exist

You will find many food grade bulk bag manufacturers claiming their bags to be FDA approved, the truth is that FDA does not issue any kind of approval, accreditation, or certificate for FIBCs or FIBC liners. However, FDA does approve that only 100 percent virgin polypropylene resin should come in contact with food. So, when food grade FIBC manufacturers claim that their FIBCs are approved by the FDA, they may mean that the bags are made of 100 percent virgin polypropylene resin and hence as per the FDA standards the bags are appropriate for storing and transporting food.

Myth 2: Any type of FIBC bag can be used for storing food grade products if it uses a food grade liner

Fact: FIBC bag too should be made of 100 % polypropylene resin if it is to be used for food grade products

Not just the liner, but the FIBC bag that comes in contact with food grade products too should be made of 100% virgin polypropylene resin. Use of such bags ensures that no recycled material is used in the manufacturing of the bag. This helps in reducing the chances of contamination.

Further, manufacturing facility for food grade FIBC needs to follow strict norms to ensure highest standards of quality. Manufacturers need to ensure that their food grade bulk bags are produced in BRC certified facility which has proper ventilation, facility for light table inspection, metal detection, and record keeping. Employees should wear a proper uniform and adhere to recommended hygiene standards. A HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) program should also be followed.


Myth 3: GFSI accreditation is a must

Fact: GFSI does not offer but recognizes certain third-party accreditations and certifications

It is a myth that GFSI accreditation is a must for food-grade bulk bags. The fact is that GFSI neither has any policy for FIBC manufacturers or retailers nor it undertakes any accreditation or certification activities. The aim of GFSI (Global Food Safety) is to facilitate continuous betterment of food safety management systems which instills confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers anywhere in the world.

Here are some third-party accreditations/food safety management schemes and certifications that the GFSI does recognize:

  • Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC)
  • BRC – British Retail Consortium: BRC Global Standard for Packaging & Packaging Materials Issue 4
  • International Featured Standards (IFS): IFS PAC secure, Version 1
  • SQF – Safe Quality Food Institute: SQF Code 7th Edition; Level 2

Food Grade FIBC Bags used in the Agriculture Industry-Rishi FIBC

How are Food Grade FIBC Bags used in the Agriculture Industry

The agriculture industry is constantly innovating and making use of new technologies for generating higher yield and to improve the storage and transportation of the crop. A major shift noticed recently in the agriculture industry is the growing use of FIBCs or bulk bags. Food grade FIBC bags are being highly preferred in the agriculture industry as these prevent possible spills or waste of food products and thereby helping in enhancing the net yield of the crop.

Things that Matter When Choosing Food Grade Bulk Bags for Agriculture Industry

Type of Crop You Need to Store

When selecting an FIBC bag keep in mind the crop/seed/fertilizer you will be storing in it. This is because every product needs specific treatment.

In this case, you would need bags with liners to prevent moisture from reaching the grains. Likewise, when selecting a food grade FIBC bag you would also need to pay attention to the distance the crop would be travelling and how much time it would take to reach the destination.

Optimal Size and Style of the Food Grade Bulk Bag

Apart from the type, the size of the bulk bag needs to be selected with care. By choosing the optimum size of the FIBCs, businesses can economize the cost of shipping as well as packaging.

FIBC Bags Help Reduce Company Costs

FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container) bags are environment-friendly industrial containers that are made of flexible fabric and designed for storage and transportation of non-hazardous flowing and granulated products such as sand, fertilizers, chemicals, plastic granules, etc.

These FIBC bags have been revolutionary in the way the heavy quantity products are stored and transported. Besides reducing time spent in packaging and storage, these bulk bags are much easier and safe to transport as well, keeping the products intact, making them suitable for transportation in domestic as well as international markets.

The FIBC bags are helping companies in cost reduction in a big way.

  1. Transport and storage cost: The FIBC bags do not require pallets as each one has integral lifting loops. There is no need for secondary packaging also as these bags are strong and safe on their own. This saves the cost of extra packaging and the material can be transported safely from one place to the other.
  2. Reusability: The FIBC bags are reusable, which means the same bag can be used to transport and store the goods over and over (provided it meets the reuse guidelines and is cleaned and reconditioned regularly). This helps in cutting costs on buying multiple containers and bags. These bags can also be folded flat taking up minimal space when not in use. This way, the companies do not have to keep extra storage space just for these container bags.
  3. Can carry large quantity in one go: Designed to carry a huge load in one single time, FIBC bags helps in cost cutting in terms of buying multiple bags carrying limited amount of load.
  4. Available in variable dimensions: FIBC bags come in a variety of designs and styles, each with a selection of multiple features. The various styles include Food grade, 4-panel, U-panel, baffle with fabrics ranging from coated, uncoated, conductive, color options, top features being open top, duffle top, cone top, etc. and bottom design ranging from flat bottom, discharge spout, closure, full bottom discharge, etc. This variety in choice allows companies to get a bulk bag best suited for their product.
  5. Simple to use and cost effective: The FIBC bags are very simple to handle, fill, store, and transport, not requiring any kind of special training for their usage, which makes it a totally cost effective product.
  6. An array of filling, lifting and discharging facilities: All these bags are designed in such a way that it suits the company requirements of filling, lifting and discharging the product from the bag.
  7. Enduring strength: One of the best features of these bags is their strength and endurance making them a hit for carrying large volumes of goods and store them efficiently.
