Understanding FIBC Fabric Types
By Fabric Electrostatic Classification:

Type A - No Electrostatic Protection
Type B - Surface Breakdown Voltage of <6kV
Type C - Electrically Conductive or Groundable
Type D - Static Dissipative
 
What is a Type "A" bag?
 
A type "A" bag is constructed from non-treated insulating fabric.  No requirements are specified for type "A" bulk bag as they are not intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.  No static protection.
  • Used safely to transport non-flammable products.
  • There are to be no flammable solvents or gases present around the bag.
  • DO NOT USE to transport flammable products.
What is a Type "B" bag?

A type "B" bag is constructed from insulating fabric but has a breakdown voltage less than 6kV.  This provision prevents the risk of energetic propagating brush discharges which can ignite dust-air mixture.  Type "B" bags may be used in the presence of the combustible dusts with MIE of greater than 3mj but in the absence of flammable vapors of gases.  Low breakdown voltage.
  • Used safely to transport dry, flammable powders.
  • There are to be no flammable solvents or gases present around the bag.
  • DO NOT USE to transport flammable products.
What is a Type "C" bag?

A type "C" bag is constructed from fabrics having inter-connected conductive threads.  The bag must be electrically grounded during filling and emptying.
  • Used safely to transport flammable powders.
  • Used safely when flammable solvents or gases are present around the bag.
  • DO NOT USE when ground connection is not present or has become damaged.
What is a Type "D" bag?

A type "D" bag is constructed from antistatic fabric that includes static dissipative, like Crohmiq type bulk bag.  This type of bulk bag does not require grounding.
  • Used safely to transport flammable powders.
  • Used safely when flammable solvents or gases are present around the bag. 
  • DO NOT USE when the surface is contaminated or coated with conductive material such as water or grease.
What is a Crohmiq bulk bag?


 

Crohmiq is a brand name of a static dissipative fabric patented by Texene Packaging Fabrics.  Only a few bulk bag manufacturers in the world have the ability to produce this type of Crohmiq fabric.  Ask your Global-Pak representative for a quote today.
