Anti-Static and Conductive Bulk Bags / FIBCs
Our static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags and conductive bulk bags are for use in environments where combustible gases, dust or vapours are present due to the high risk of electrostatic charge build up that develops within a standard bulk bag / FIBC whilst it is being filled and or discharged.
In order to eliminate this risk the use of our Type C conductive bulk bag or Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bag is essential.
Type C Conductive Bulk Bags
Type C conductive bulk bags / FIBCs are manufactured using non-conductive polypropylene fabric that are interwoven with conductive threads that when connected via a grounding point, earths the bag and dispels electrostatic charge build ups.
Type C conductive bulk bags may be used where combustible dusts and flammable atmosphere with MIE of 3mJ or less is present.
It is important to understand that manual intervention is required to ensure Type C conductive bulk bags have been interconnected and grounded when filling and discharging.
Type D Static Dissipative / Anti-Static Bulk Bags
Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags are manufactured from static dissipative and anti-static material that eliminates static build up without the need to interconnect and ground the bulk bag through a process known as the coronal-effect.
Type D static dissipative / anti-static bulk bags may be used where combustible dusts and flammable atmosphere with MIE of 3mJ or less is present.
