When handling sensitive bulk powders, or filling and discharging bags where flammable gases or vapors are present, static protection is essential to prevent a fire or catastrophic explosion. Electrostatic FIBCs offer static protection in the form of either a Type C or Type D bulk bag. These bag types are engineered to control static electricity thereby significantly reducing the risk of a fire or explosion.
A Type C FIBC is made of woven conductive fabric or from a non-conductive fabric with interconnected conductive threads or filaments. The conductive threads are sewn in a grid pattern.
Type C bags are designed to control electrostatic charges by grounding. Type C bags are safe for transporting FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY be present outside of the bag. However, a Type C FIBC MUST BE GROUNDED during filling and discharge.
