Polyethylene Liners For Transport Of Fine Powders
Businesses all around the globe dealing in manufacturing products for further sales have a common requirement, which is utility for transportation of their products. It is because of this reason that; a large amount of investment is made by different organizations behind the utility of transportation requirements from time to time. The main reason behind this is the large-scale challenges that ride with the transportation of products from one place to another. These challenges usually account for multiple natural factors like temperature and changes it may encounter, humidity, exposure to sunlight, and more. Other than these identified natural challenges transportation of product may also encounter barriers to product requirement since some product needs more care than others or compatibility factors that may arise because of the product being unanimous to the transportation utility that is used for transportation of the product. These challenges thus identified rise multifold when it comes to packaging and transportation of fine powders from one place to another creating major havoc for businesses dealing with FINE POWDERS. It is for this reason defining a perfect solution for the transportation of fine powders is of pertinent importance for businesses dealing in fine powders.
To ensure businesses dealing in fine powders can have proper long-term solutions for the transportation of their products Rishi FIBC brings to you Polyethylene liners an ideal solution for the transportation of fine powders.
Let’s take a look at what polyethylene liners are and how they can contribute to the challenges faced by businesses about the transportation of fine powders!
What is Polyethylene Liner?
A Polyethylene (PE) container liner is essentially a packaging material used to create a barrier between the container carrying products that are to be shipped. These liners are effective for transporting materials like minerals, powders, seeds, and food. As the name suggests the material used to make these liners is polyethylene. They are designed from flexible polyethylene material based on the requirements of usage to facilitate any ISO standard container to be shipped in bulk in, an easy and efficient manner. The design of polyethylene liner comes in dry bulk container liners based on the needs of the customer for example: single layer, double layer, triple layer for food, hazardous and non–hazardous in the form of dry, semi-wet, and slurry finishing. The polyethylene liners create a layer that helps to line the inside wall of the container. This is done to make sure that the product inside the container does not touch the container. The container liners are usually made up of polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP). The liners play a vital role in the creation of an extra wall inside the container. This, in turn, helps in the safeguarding of the product and at the same time readily prevents any kind of contamination. The manufacturing of polyethylene liners can be carried out as per both requirements of standard and custom container liners to fit a typical shipping container size, based on the specific requirements of a business. So if your business uses a customized shipping method, specialized custom-made polyethylene liners to fit your shipping containers can be manufactured to meet your requirements. These liners are made from virgin materials, ensuring that your goods do not come in contact with a material that they ideally shouldn’t gel with. Making it ideal for transportation of fine powders that require extra safety.
Challenges of Transporting Fine Powders
Despite an idealized view of what polyethylene liners are and how they can help in the transportation of fine powders for businesses, it is important to understand the various challenges that the transportation of fine powder poses. This will provide a clear understanding of the methodological approach to how polyethylene liners can contribute to overcoming the challenges of transporting fine powders.
The transportation of fine powders is an emerging technologic task, with industry particle sizes of processed powders getting smaller and smaller the challenges with the process of transportation have greatly risen over time. Fine powders are primarily defined by the fact that adhesive and cohesive forces outweigh the weight forces. This leads to mostly unwanted agglomeration (clumping) and adhesion to surfaces, which makes it more difficult to use conventional systems for transportation. This challenge that outweighs the regular possibility of transportation majorly happens because of the humidity or the fine powder’s ability to absorb moisture. Further, with the particle size of powder getting smaller and smaller major challenge arises from leaking through the bag during transport, maneuvering, and filling of the bag. Further during the process of transportation coordinated friction manipulates the powder acceleration, it is because of this reason contamination of the powder through reaction is possible with the material they are stored in resulting in the deterioration of the quality of the powders. These identified challenges in the process of transporting fine powders showcase the large-scale issues that businesses face with the overall process of transporting fine powders. The summarized identified challenges are as below:
- Clumping of powder because of moisture and humidity deteriorating the quality
- Loss of powder volume because of leakage in the bag and while loading and unloading
- Deterioration of quality because of reaction with outer element through coordinated friction
- Quality deterioration because of exposure to continuous changes in temperature or other weather conditions to which the fine powder can be reactive
These challenges are the major concern for transportation of fine powder which can be resolved with the usage of polyethylene liners.
How Polyethylene Liner Contributes to Overcoming the Challenges Identified
The process of development and treatment makes polyethylene liners stand out as an ideal solution for resolving issues related to fine powder transportation. Based on the challenges identified earlier related to the transportation of fine powders below are observational findings on how polyethylene liners help overcome each challenge:
Clumping of powder because of moisture and humidity deteriorates the quality
Polyethylene liners are manufactured from LLDPE virgin resin pallets which help in the development of polymers that are inert to active moisture or humidity. It is majorly because polyethylene liners are usually a complete chain of hydrocarbon atoms (C2H4) n. It is because of this reason polyethylene liners are waterproof and prevent moisture or humidity from seeping into the containers because of their inactive nature to H2O. This in turn prevents fine powders from getting damp and losing their quality.
Loss of powder volume because of leakage in the bag and while loading and unloading
The polyethylene liners are manufactured from flexible polymers as per the requirement and size of the containers. This allows the polyethylene liners to play a vital role in the creation of an extra wall inside the container. This, in turn, helps in the safeguarding of the fine powders from loss in volume because of leakage. It is because any loss of powder during the process of loading, unloading, and transportation accounting from leakage will automatically get collected in the polyethylene liners, which can then be collected in separate packaging ensuring the safety of fine powders from loss in volume during transportation.
Deterioration of quality because of reaction with outer element through coordinated friction
The design of polyethylene liner comes in dry bulk liner based on the needs of the customer for example single layer, double layer, triple layer for food, hazardous and non–hazardous in the form of dry, semi-wet, and slurry finishing. The polyethylene liners create a layer that helps to line the inside wall of the container. This is done to make sure that the product inside the container does not touch the container. This in turn creates an extra layer of safety for the fine powders during transportation, which withheld the fine powders from coming in touch with the container, in turn preventing it from getting contaminated from coordinated friction reaction with the powder.
Quality deterioration because of exposure to continuous changes in temperature or other weather conditions to which the fine powder can be reactive
The polyethylene liners can reflect ultraviolet radiation and avoid moisture and humidity, They also showcase holding on to a constant temperature when applied because of their Carbon to Hydrogen atom bonding in a branched manner. Further based on exposure to different natural calamities for the container, the polyethylene liner can be made single-layer, double-layer, triple layer making it perfect for climate control. This in turn prevent the effect of temperature and climatic variation effect from directly impacting the fine powders loaded for transportation, which in turn prevent the fine powders from quality deterioration due to exposure to continuous change in temperature or other weather condition.
These application model views signify how polyethylene liner plays an important role in the transportation of fine powders while safeguarding it from all possible damages that might result in a challenge for the business.
Benefits of Using Polyethylene Liners for Transportation of Fine Powders
The introspection of polyethylene liners indicates how it majorly contributes to the safe transportation of fine powders. Other than being the perfect solution for the transportation of fine powder, polyethylene liners showcase many other advantages they are as follows:
- Made from Virgin Resin Polyethylene liners are environmentally friendly
- Because of its production for virgin resin they are usually food grade quality making them safe for pharmaceutical and food grade powder transportation
- Manufactured from LLDPE polyethylene liners are washable in stranded water and are waterproof
- Since polyethylene liners are washable they can be re-used over multiple transits without having to worry about contamination from foreign particles
- The density structure for polyethylene liner can be customized as per the requirement of the products
- Since polyethylene liners are developed using a single-line extrusion process sizes of the liners can be customized as per container size and customer requirements
- Polyethylene structure functions as a natural reflection against ultraviolet rays and hence the liners have the ability to protect the product from the harmful effect of ultraviolet rays
- Polyethylene liners are naturally temperature controlling because of their molecular structure based on requirement it can be made into single, double, or tripled layers depending on the requirement of maintaining a constant temperature. The cooler the constant temperature requirement is the more is the layer.
These are some of the major benefits of using polyethylene liner for fine powder transportation besides its regular capacity of eliminating all challenges related to the transportation process.
