Bulk bags

When not in use, bulk bags (also known as large bags or FIBCs) can be recycled into new bags; they are great for transporting loose items.

Tell me about bulk bags

Huge, sturdy fabric bins are known as bulk bags. Depending on the material and industry, their size and weight can range from 2-3 kg per unit, with a typical capacity of 800-900 kg.

The recycling of large bags

Industries that deal with big amounts of loose, dry materials, such grain, sand, or animal feed, frequently employ bulk bags. Although these bags are frequently reused, they can be compressed after each use to make the procedure more efficient.

Reusing and recycling large bags

Although bulk bags can be recycled, they must be compacted in order to be handled effectively. Due to the nature of the contents being conveyed in bulk bags, thorough cleaning is necessary prior to reuse. One typical method involves rolling the bags into smaller bundles and then taking them to a recycling center, where they are shredded and repurposed to make new bags. It is possible to modify Mil-tek balers to deal with bulk bags, and they can be equipped with dust extractor systems to deal with the dust that is produced during compaction.
