Order FIBCs with filling and discharging systems
Simple filling and fast discharging of Big Bags
Whether they are used in the construction materials industry, food industry, agricultural sector or chemical industry, when filling FIBCs (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers), normally referred to as “Big Bags”, mechanically, a filling and discharging system is definitely worth having for these practical containers. To satisfy an extremely wide range of requirements throughout many different industries, the filling and discharging systems can be freely combined.
Overview of our filling systems for Big Bags
To make the Big Bags easier to fill, a range of filling systems are available. Most of the filling systems can be sealed to protect the goods from external contamination.
Open at top
Big Bags that are not closed at the top are easy to fill with course bulk material, such as those typically used in construction. The content of these Big Bags can also once again be removed using tools such as a shovel.
Top skirt with cord
FIBCs with top skirt with cord are used of the transport sacks are to be filled with dusty dry goods. A skirt protects the contents of Big Bags from external contamination. Furthermore, it also prevents finely powdered products from being blown out of the transport sack into the surroundings by moving air or a gust of wind. These Big Bags are therefore very useful for storing seeds, as well as many other products.
Filling spouts make filling of Big Bags with very fine dry and dusty bulk goods easier – whether it be powdery or granular material.
Tie-down covers protect course bulk goods, such as stones or gravel, but also garden waste, from heavy external contamination.
Overview of our discharging systems
Closed at bottom
Big Bags that are closed at the bottom are suitable for finely-powdered and course-grained goods that do not require dispensing. They are frequently used to transport construction materials such as stones, sand or gravel, and also wood or potatoes.
Big Bags with discharging spouts can be opened or closed if required which makes them suitable for dispensing gravel, seeds or powder.
Double discharging spout
Big Bags are normally exposed to very high loads. A double discharging spout protects the transport sacks from tearing open due to recurring friction and the resulting wear. Big Bags with double discharging spouts can dispense their contents more precisely than Big Bags with one discharging spout, as they are equipped with two closure bars. This prevents too much feedstuff being dispensed.
Star-shaped/fully opening base
Big Bags with star-shaped base can be fully opened. They are used particularly in locations where the transport sacks need to be emptied very quickly. This means that Big Bags containing bulky goods, such as logs, can be emptied more easily and quickly.
Combinations of filling and discharging systems
A Big Bag must satisfy many different requirements and therefore all filling and discharging systems can be combined. We can, for example, configure Big Bags with a skirt at the top and an discharging spout at the bottom. The skirt makes filling the Big Bag with dry dusty bulk goods easier; granular or finely powdered material can be dispensed via the re-closable discharging spout. FIBCs are also available with a filling and discharging spout, for example. They can therefore be quickly filled and easily emptied.
Metered discharge is possible with the B-Lock closure. The discharging spout is also secured by a special fixture that allows the Big Bag to be closed again.
Open at top, closed at bottom
Big Bags that are open at the top and closed at the bottom can often be found on construction sites. This is because they are very suitable for storing and transporting course bulk goods. Furthermore, they are often used as provisional storage for garden waste.
Open at the top, discharge spout at the bottom
These FIBCs are quick to fill, due to the large opening at the top. The discharging spout enables metered dispensing of the contents. These kind of Big Bags are useful when laying paths made of gravel or broken stones for example, in order to distribute the content evenly.
Skirt at top, closed at bottom
Can be quickly filled through large opening. The opening is also large enough to remove the content with a shovel. The skirt with tie cord also prevents dust-laden bulk goods such as sand, for example, from being carried away by the wind.
Skirt at top, discharging spout at bottom
With these Big Bags, finely powdered materials, such as individual ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, cocoa, etc.) can be rapidly filled and emptied in stages during food production. As the skirt can be closed, the ingredients in the Big Bag are protected against contamination from the outside.
Filling spout at top, closed at bottom
These Big Bags are used to store course-grained or fine particulate materials. The filling spout makes it much easier to fill the Big Bag. Because the bottom is closed, the Big Bags are easy to store in high-bay racks. Additionally, these Big Bags are also often used for final storage and disposal of fine materials.
Filling spout at top, discharging spout at bottom
A Big Bag with a filling spout and a discharging spout can be quickly and cleanly filled and precisely emptied. These Big Bags are suitable for flowable materials, such as feedstuff or granules. They are also used to transport minerals, construction materials or foods.
