Upgrading to form-fit bulk bag liners

Today, more dry bulk solids shippers than ever before are using bulk bags, also known as flexible intermediate bulk containers [FIBCs], and the trend is likely to continue. Bulk bag shipments in 1992 increased over 17 percent from 3.8 million in 1991 to 4.5 million units, and projections are for annual 14 percent increases over the next 3 years.

Without a liner, however, a bulk bag can't completely protect your product. This article discusses form-fit bulk bag liners, which offer several advantages over tube liners. After covering some liner basics, sections cover the hidden costs of ill-fitting tube liners, upgrading to form-fit liners, and justifying the cost of form-fit liners. Related information tells you where to find more information about bulk bags in previous PBE issues and describes proper filling and handling techniques to ensure stable bulk bags.
