Procon Pacific has been recognized as the most trusted source in the bulk packaging industry for FIBC solutions that can meet virtually any requirement. What’s more, our extensive expertise and experience with FIBC manufacturing means we can provide you with the exact packaging resources you need based on your specifications and business goals.
For example, our Type B FIBC solutions feature superior protection against static electricity that can be created by the flow of materials into and out of bulk bags. Type B bulk bags are similar to Type A FIBC’s in that they are both made from plain polypropylene and/or non-conductive materials, and do not have any mechanism for dissipating static electricity.
The difference is unlike Type A FIBCs, Type B FIBCs are made from materials that have a surface breakdown voltage of up to 6kV. Because of this surface breakdown voltage, Type B FIBCs prevent sparks and propagating brush discharges. Type B should NOT be used in environments containing flammable solvents or gases.
Procon Pacific is now able to offer Type B FIBCs with a liner, meeting all requirements set forth in IEC Revision: IEC 61340-4-4 Edition 2 2012-1.
Examples of safe Type B FIBC use:
- To transport dry, flammable powders with MIE >3 mJ
- No flammable solvents or gases present around the bag
