BULK BAG SELECTION
To begin the process of selecting the size of a bulk bag, you must first take in to consideration the weight of the product and it's bulk density. Lift loops can be sewn to the bag corners, or cross corner to allow fork lifts to easily insert the forks into the loops with ease.

Fill spouts come in a standard duffle top or spout top. However can be custom made to fit a specific filling machine. Discharge spouts come standard like the fill spout, 14x18. Although they should be wide enough to easily allow the material to discharge quickly. There are other types of bottom constructions for bulk bags, which include a plain bottom, conical bottom (which aids in the flow of product), Diaper bottom, or full open bottom.

Bags with liners are designed to prevent moisture from the product. The most common liners are tube liners, with a typical liner being made from polyethylene in a 3 mil. thickness. Liners can be sewn in to the fabric seams or tabbed in all 8 corners of the bag, which is a design that will prevent the liner from coming out of the bag during discharge.

Most bags are made with a 5:1 safety ratio for single trip bags with a standard safe working load between 500 lbs. - 4000 lbs., and a 6:1 ratio for multi-trip bags can go up to 5000 lbs. UN certified bags are tested to a 6:1 safety ratio. Bulk bags can be made for food or pharma products as well.
