FIBC Bags Type B

FIBC Bags Type B are made of an insulating fabric that precludes sparks and discharge.

  • Safe to use for transporting dry, flammable powders.
  • Plain bag with limiting the breakdown Voltage less than 6kV.
  • Not intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
  • Safe for use when no flammable solvents or vapors present around the operation area.



What is FIBC Bags Type B?

FIBC Bags Type B are a specific type of flexible intermediate bulk container designed with certain properties to handle specific materials safely. Here are the key features and characteristics of Type B FIBC bags:

  1. Material: Made from non-conductive fabric similar to Type A bags.
  2. Breakdown Voltage: Designed with a breakdown voltage of 4 kilovolts (kV) or less, preventing the occurrence of highly energetic and dangerous propagating brush discharges.
  3. Static Electricity: They are not designed to dissipate static electricity. Instead, they prevent the occurrence of sparks and brush discharges by limiting the buildup of static energy.
  4. Usage: Suitable for transporting dry, flammable powders where no flammable solvents or gases are present. They are not suitable for environments where a flammable atmosphere with flammable gases or solvents is present.
  5. Safety: Provides an added layer of safety compared to Type A bags, making them a cost-effective option for handling certain materials that could otherwise pose a fire or explosion hazard.

Type B FIBC bags are a crucial part of safe bulk material handling in industries where static discharge could present a risk, but where full conductivity is not required.

What is the difference between FIBC Bags Type A and FIBC Bags Type B?

FIBC Bags Type A and Type B, while both made from non-conductive fabric, serve different purposes based on their static electricity handling capabilities. Type A bags lack any special features to control static electricity and are thus only appropriate for transporting non-flammable products in non-hazardous environments. These bags should not be used where flammable gases, vapours, or combustible dust are present, as they cannot prevent or control static discharge, posing a significant risk of fire or explosion.

In contrast, Type B bags are designed with a specific breakdown voltage of 4 kilovolts (kV) or less to prevent dangerous propagating brush discharges. Although they do not dissipate static electricity, their design limits the buildup of static energy, providing a higher level of safety when handling dry, flammable powders in environments without flammable gases or solvents. This feature makes Type B bags a safer and more suitable option for transporting certain flammable materials, offering an added layer of protection compared to Type A bags.


Are FIBC Bags Type B waterproof?

FIBC Bags Type B are not inherently waterproof. They are designed primarily for their anti-static properties rather than for moisture resistance. However, they can be manufactured with additional features to improve their water resistance. Here are some ways to make FIBC Bags Type B more waterproof:

  1. Liner Inserts: Adding a polyethylene or polypropylene liner inside the bag can provide an additional layer of protection against moisture.
  2. Coated Fabric: The outer fabric of the bag can be coated with a layer of polypropylene, making it more resistant to water ingress.
  3. Sealed Seams: Using special seam-sealing techniques can help prevent water from entering through the stitching.

While these features can enhance the water resistance of Type B FIBC bags, they are not inherently waterproof unless these modifications are made. If moisture protection is crucial, it’s essential to specify these requirements when ordering or selecting the bags.
