What kind of Material do you want to transport in an FIBC bag?
The penultimate thing that you need to consider is the material you are going to transport in the bulk bag. It’s a cast and stone thing while selecting the FIBC, such as:
- The nature of the material to be transported. If you are to transport fine particles to be used in industrial applications, you need to be cautious as the dust of most chemical substances is explosive. When dispersed in air, a majority of the industrial used dust is explosible. If you are not sure, you can conduct a “Standard Test Method for Explosibility of Dust Clouds” to determine if the material is explosible or not.
- If the material is identified to be explosible, you will need to find out the Minimum Ignition Energy (MIE) of the dust material, which is the lowest electrostatic spark energy that could ignite a dust cloud.
- Another factor that plays a crucial role when selecting an FIBC is the evaluation of the surrounding when filling and discharging the bulk bag. You need to find out if flammable vapour or gases would be present when the bag is being filled and discharged.
Nevertheless, you also need to evaluate the ability of powdered particles inside the bag to generate or retain an electrostatic charge when it is being processed, filled or discharged.
