Type C Bags (Conductive Bags)
Also known as Conductive FIBC Bags, these Type C bags were originally made entirely from conductive materials. But today, ILERAFITEX, S.L., provides Type C FIBC bags that made from non-conductive polypropylene interwoven normally in a grid pattern with conduction yarns. The process involves interconnection of conductive yarns electrically that are later connected to designated ground or earth bonding points. Here, during the stage of bulk bag filling and emptying operations, it is ensured that the ground or earth bonding points are connected to a system ground or earth. Moreover, when the conductive yarns and the connection to ground or earth is interconnected during these operations, the use of Type C FIBC bags becomes critically safe. Though, it must be noted that while ensuring interconnection and grounding of Type C FIBC, there are chances of human errors as the operations are carried out manually.
When it is safe to use?
To transport flammable powders, these conductive jumbo bags can be used safely. Additionally, it can also be used in environments when gases or flammable solvents are present around the bag.
When it shouldn’t be used?
Make sure to not use these Type C Bags when the ground connection is not present or even when it has become damaged due to any reason.
