Type C Bulk Bags

FIBC Type C are made from fabrics that have inter-connected static dissipative or conductive threads, which is why they're known as conductive FIBC or groundable FIBC. Originally they were made from entirely conductive materials, but now groundable Type C FIBC are more commonly made from non-conductive polypropylene interwoven with conducting yarns, normally in a grid pattern. The conductive yarns must be electrically interconnected and connected to designated ground or earth bonding points. The ground or earth bonding points must in turn be connected to a system ground or earth during all bulk bag filling and emptying operations.

FIBC Type C Requirements

Elway preforms tests to meet Type C bulk bag requirements including electrical breakdown voltage and propagating brush discharge testing. Type C bulk bags also require testing for resistance to ground-able point.

FIBC Type C Applications

Common products that use Type C bulk bags:

  • Combustible solids with MIE less than 3mJ
  • Transporting flammable vapors and gases with MIE > 0.14mJ.
