FIBC Bags Type C

FIBC Bags Type C, commonly known as Conductive FIBC. These are made of thin conductive threads – making them suitable for carrying dry, combustible powders securely. FIBC Bags Type C bulk bags are constructed of non-conductive fabric with conductive strands intertwined.

  • Also known as Conductive FIBC.
  • Safe to use for transporting dry, flammable powders.
  • With a max. leakage resistance of 108 Ω to the grounding point.
  • Grounding is compulsory during filling & discharging, a label or sign is indicated.
  • Safe for use when no flammable solvents or vapors present around the operation area.
  • Breakdown voltage less than 6kV.
  • Designed for use safely in potentially explosive atmospheres.
  • Made from fine conductive threads & equip a conductive mesh.



What are FIBC Bags Type C?

FIBC Bags Type C, also known as conductive FIBCs, are designed for safely transporting and storing flammable powders or when flammable gases, vapours, or dust are present. These bags are made from non-conductive fabric interwoven with conductive threads, typically made from carbon or metal, which form a grid pattern.

The key feature of Type C bags is their grounding requirement; they must be grounded during filling and emptying to prevent the buildup of static electricity. Proper grounding ensures that any electrostatic charge is safely dissipated, reducing the risk of fire or explosion in hazardous environments. Type C bags are commonly used in industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food products where flammable materials are handled.

To ensure safety, it is crucial to follow proper grounding procedures, inspect grounding connections and conductive threads regularly, and adhere to industry standards and regulations.

Why FIBC type C is expensive?

FIBC Type C bags, also known as conductive FIBCs, tend to be more expensive due to several factors related to their specialized design and safety features:

  1. Conductive Materials: Type C bags are made from non-conductive fabric interwoven with conductive threads or tapes, typically made from carbon or metal. These conductive materials are more costly than standard fabrics used in other types of FIBCs.
  2. Manufacturing Complexity: The process of weaving conductive threads into a grid pattern within the fabric adds complexity to the manufacturing process. This requires specialized equipment and techniques, which increase production costs.
  3. Quality Control: Ensuring the conductivity and integrity of Type C bags involves rigorous quality control measures. Each bag must be tested to ensure it meets safety standards, adding to the overall cost.
  4. Safety Standards Compliance: Type C bags must comply with strict industry standards and regulations to ensure they are safe for use in environments with flammable gases, vapours, or dust. Meeting these safety requirements often involves additional testing and certification, contributing to higher costs.
  5. Grounding Features: These bags come with grounding tabs and clear markings to indicate their conductive properties. The addition of these features adds to the material and manufacturing costs.
  6. Specialized Use: Type C bags are designed for specific high-risk applications where safety is paramount. The specialized nature of these bags and their limited market compared to standard FIBCs can also contribute to higher prices.

Overall, the increased cost of FIBC Type C bags is justified by their enhanced safety features, specialized materials, and rigorous manufacturing processes required to ensure they can safely dissipate static electricity in hazardous environments.

Which is better FIBC Type B or FIBC Type-C?

The choice between FIBC Type B and FIBC Type C depends on the specific requirements of your application and the safety measures needed. FIBC Type B bags are made from non-conductive polypropylene fabric and are designed to prevent brush discharges that can ignite flammable dust-air mixtures. They are suitable for transporting dry, flammable powders where no flammable gases or vapours are present, making them a cost-effective option for less hazardous environments. However, they do not protect against static discharges in more volatile settings.


On the other hand, FIBC Type C bags are constructed from non-conductive fabric interwoven with conductive threads, which form a grid pattern. These bags must be grounded during filling and emptying to safely dissipate static electricity, making them ideal for transporting flammable powders in environments where flammable gases, vapours, or dust are present. Although Type C bags are more expensive due to the inclusion of conductive materials and the need for grounding, they offer a higher level of safety in hazardous environments with the potential for static discharges to ignite flammable atmospheres.


In summary, FIBC Type B bags are a better choice for less hazardous environments and are more cost-effective, while FIBC Type C bags are preferable for high-risk settings requiring stringent safety measures against static electricity.
