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. C
ROHMIQ™ static protective FIBC fabric is internationally recognized as the safest Anti-Static Type D technology available today. Over 40 million CROHMIQ bulk bags have been safely used in combustible environments without a single recorded industrial accident. Southern Packaging proudly supports the use of CROHMIQ branded FIBC fabrics and bulk bags.
A Type D FIBC is made of woven fabric which enables electrostatic charge to be dissipated without being grounded. The fabric of a Type D FIBC generally contains conductive threads or filaments which safely dissipate the charge through low energy "corona" discharges. Some Type D bags have a low resistivity lining, which can reduce the risk of incendiary discharges.
Type D bulk bags are safe for transporting FLAMMABLE products. Flammable materials or gases MAY be present outside of the bag. Type D FIBCs are NOT REQUIRED TO BE GROUNDED during filling and discharge.
Type D bulk bags such as Crohmiq™ bulk bags are manufactured with fabric containing quasi-conductive yarns that safely dissipate static electricity into the atmosphere via safe, low-energy corona discharge.
