BULK BAG HANDLING

The use and handling of Bulk Bags or 1 Tonne FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) (Big Bags) is a crucial part of many bulk materials handling systems. When ingredients are handled at a rate of more than 1 tonne a day and less than 5 tonne a day the 1 tonne bulk bag is the most cost effective way of handling bulk materials. It fits neatly between 25kg sacks and silo storage.

Ingredient Classification Storage Form Use & Consumption per day
Minor Ingredients 25 kg sacks/boxes/sachets approx. 1kg to 1 Tonne per day
Major Ingredients 1 Tonne FIBC (Big Bags) approx. 1 to 5 Tonne per day
Bulk Ingredients 25T to 100 Tonne Silo approx. 5 to 20Tonne per day
