The useful life of flexible FIBC depends of two factors that it´s determined during the purchase and his project:
- Disposable FIBC: It´s use one, don´t use and rule the some after his use.
- Reusable FIBIC: It´s use several times, but the useful life has change in accordance with the conditions of use, cycle operations and inspections realized it before reuse.
Others factors that too determine the useful life of a FIBC:
- The models of FIBC (project);
- Uses materials;
- Operation´s cycle;
- Inspections in device of handle and transport;
- Criterion of security´s inspection according to NBR 15009/2003 realized at FIBC.
It´s correct follow always the recommendation into instruction´s brochure at FIBC to:
- Use always the four straps;
- The stack ´s the equipment more showed to handle, it´s always attentive for inspections at device in the some like fork and extension.
- Use of pallets;- Mobile bridge and hang devices;- Storage;- Storage in pallets;
- Covering hangar, cause the storage in the open air can be did, but it isn´t more specified to inform always the Conteflex this condition during the purchase of FIBC, always that it is possible to cover it.
Vertical: Simple stacking, establish the limit of three or four FIBC.
Horizontal: It´s a staking more specified and it can be staked of eight to fifteen FIBC (it depends of project).
Yes, there are others models of FIBC adapted do each client according to with the specific necessity of each user, so can be personalize a FIBC according to the device of padding, unloading, product, device of transport, necessity of storage specific and others.
During the use the FIBC must be:
- It´s must be handled with four straps;
- Don´t exceed the capacity of load;
- Attention with things pointed scorching and sharp;
- In case of handled and transport with a fork-lift in the floor and surface irregular;
- Must be done in low velocity;
- Checking the floor of truck and cart;
- Checking the regular the fork of fork-lift;
- Protecting the FIBC of rain and prolonged exhibition at sun;
- If there´s some problem at FIBC don´t use it;
- Training always the people that carry the handled it.
In general, all the products in grain, powder, pasta, stone and others some example, fertilize, sugar ( organic, crystal e refinery ), coffee, corn, flour, resin, catalyst, iron, sand, coal, starch, PVC in powder, ore, pet bottle, bottle, manioc, soya, peanut, industrials waste and others.
For certain cases must adjust the FIBC to use, cause there´s models lining or double wall and FIBC with several weight and too there´s FIBC that must be has a project specific to “dangerous products” where the FIBC must has ratification specific per Navy Ministry.
Humid: The FIBC isn´t totality waterproof and there´s two types of FIBC:
Use to intern film of PERB (liner) with thickness according to project.
FIBC with tissue of polypropylene laminated in other words, it is together the tissue there´s a film that improvement the performance with respect to humid.
Materials with high temperature: usually the materials into the FIBC, they are in normal temperature that is ideal, but the materials of flexible FIBC, the polypropylene, it´s recommended temperature between 70º and above 10 degrees Celsius, for specials cases of variation the requirement, it´s correct consult the Conteflex Department Technical.
- In the Reusable it´s necessary before the next use, do an inspection of security mainly in the straps regions.
- In the Deposable mustn´t use and contact company of recycling polypropylene to must evidence about the treatment waste generated FIBC.
