Bulk Bag Suppliers

Over the last 30 years or so this is an area that has seen much growth and development – particularly in the area associated with the filling and emptying of Bulk Bags, also known as Big Bags, Jumbo Bags and FIBCs. Several SHAPA members have pioneered many of the developments and, today, they are at the forefront of the associated technologies.

Some of the biggest names in the packaging business can be found among the list of SHAPA members. So, whether you are looking to fill or to empty 20kg+ bags or sacks – whether for internal use or to meet ‘weights and measures’ approval for re-sale, you are sure to find the ideal Sack Filler, Sack Emptier, or one of the many associated accessories, from the SHAPA membership.

Rigid metal Intermediate Bulk Container (IBCs) have become the workhorse of the powder handling industry. Typically with a 1000kg capacity, they are mainly used to store and transport raw, semi-finished and finished materials. As part of a ‘system’, some are used in processing too. Materials can be mixed in an IBC, when it is tumbled over and over. Then the finished batch can be held and tracked within its discrete container. IBCs have a square footprint and can be stacked several high. Readily moved and lifted by a forklift truck, IBCs are an efficient means of moving and storing dry bulk materials.

Bulk Bags first appeared on the scene some 30 years ago. Typically their contents will weigh anything between 500kg and 2,000kg.Thus they are a quantum leap from traditional sacks and bags! Key to the success of Bulk Bag handling systems is the equipment designed to fill and to empty them. In both cases safe handling and containment are the by-words. Several SHAPA members are at the fore when it comes to Bulk Bag Fillers and Bulk Bag Dischargers that not only meet these essential criteria, but also offer efficiencies that make the option of switching to Bulk Bags all the more viable.

Metal drums and cardboard kegs or boxes are other types of container used for bulk materials. When full, they are too heavy to handle without the use of specialist lifting and tipping devices. SHAPA members offer a variety of solutions for drum, keg and box handling.
