2. How many products can a bulk bag hold?
Giant safety work bags weigh between 1000 and 4000 pounds, and some specialty bags have a maximum capacity of 5000 pounds - but these bags are not common.
3. Can bulk bags be recycled?
FIBC bags are made of 100% polypropylene and can be recycled. Recycling is feasible for enterprises that use a lot of bags or have a long storage space.
4. Can FIBC be reused?
Bags can be reused under certain conditions, but bags must be designed and rated, and can be used many times. If the safety factor ratio (SFR) of FIBC bag is 6
: 1, it can be reused.
5. What do 5:1 and 6:1 SF mean?
Most woven polypropylene bags are used for only one purpose. The safety factor ratio of disposable bags is 5:1, which means that they can withstand their rated safe working load at most
Five times of SWL. For your own safety, we recommend that you do not fill bags in the safe working load range.
Many woven polypropylene FIBCs are designed for a wide range of uses, with a safety factor ratio of 6:1. This means that they can withstand up to 50% of the safe workload
Six times, and we strongly recommend that bags not be filled within the safe working load range.
