Conductive Bags

Some bulk materials can create static energy during filling and discharging, which may cause an electrostatic discharge in the big bag or on its surface. If, there is a flammable dust or gas present within the atmosphere during the filling and discharging process, there is a risk of fire or explosion. To prevent this hazard, a groundable FIBC's is the ideal solution. Groundable FIBC's are also classed as Type C big bags.

The conductivity of these units is usually provided by carbon tapes which are woven into the fabric and the webbing. Silver tapes are used instead of carbon for food applications. The body construction of the FIBC can be produced out of a flat or circular fabric either coated or uncoated. Conductive liners are also available for use if waterproof applications are required. Type C FIBC's must be grounded during the filling and discharging process and every groundable big bag produced at UAC is 100% checked and labelled accordingly for its conductivity.
