Given that the market is permeated by dry bulk goods coming in and out of it every moment, the need for bulk bags or Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC) has increased drastically. Due to their flexibility, people tend to re-use these bags for long periods of time. This may not always be smart as many a times, being made of polypropylene woven fabric, they decline in quality after constant exposure to sunlight. However, they are very useful in transporting bulk cargo in a safe and hygienic fashion. More importantly, if you get your hands on a good quality FIBCs having good FIBC Liners, these will require minimal handling, last longer and will prevent your product from getting contaminated.
Types of FIBC Liners
Liners for FIBC are sometimes inserted loosely or in other instances, they may be directly attached to the bag. Depending on what you need the containers for; there are different types of FIBC Liners that are utilized for different applications.
Form-fit FIBC Liners – As the name suggests, these liners work by taking the exact shape of the FIBC. They are made of polyethylene and the fact that they can adjust themselves to the exact shape of the FIBC, including of the spouts, provides easier filling and discharging of the product they are carrying. The best part is that these liners can be easily removed from the FIBC or left there permanently. Apart from that, to improve sanitation and enhance protection, it is possible to heat-seal the spouts of the containers. Not only are these liners strong but they are also known to be chemical resistant and have moisture/ oxygen barriers along with anti-static properties. Thereby ensuring that the product remains completely safe and pure.
Lay-flat FIBC Liners –These polyethylene liners are cylindrical in shape and have no spouts. They are generally open at the top and sealed at the bottom. Despite the fact that they don’t have discharge outlets, they are a popular design for FIBCs. One end of these containers may sometimes be heat sealed. So if you need a product that requires such an arrangement, these tubular liners are the best for the task.
Food-grade Liners – Naturally, this would be the best option if you are looking to transport food containers. The reason being, these liners are designed for the sole purpose of keeping food items fresh and free from contamination. Made of FDA- approved materials, you can trust that these containers will get your food safely to its location.
Conductive Liners – Apart from these types of Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container liners, in order to safely transport items that are likely to be subjected to a static build-up, you can also get your hands on conductive liners, also called L1 liners. Conductive FIBC Liners are of three types. The Type L1 Liner, which is made of polypropylene, has a conductive film around it. The Type L2 Liner, which is well-known for its anti-static film, is made up of a polyethylene film while the third type, which is the Type L3 Liner, is solely made up of a polyethylene film.
So depending on the type of products you would like to transport, you can easily get your hands on the right FIBC. Rishi FIBC has top-grade FIBC Liners for all kinds of storage and transportation needs.
