Companies around the world transport and handle large volumes of materials in bulk bags but unloading bulk bags can be a dusty mess if not managed properly. Let's examine what causes dust emissions. Bulk Bag Design: Unless a bulk bag has been specifically designed to contain the fines present in a given product, particles can sift through the bag fabric. This looks like smoke escaping from the bag as it is being handled and emptied.

Packaging any dry bulk solid material involves the transfer of product from the end of the process/storage/conveying system to the package. At that transition point, depending on the material and other factors, dust emissions can occur. How do you ensure that your bulk bag filling system doesn't emit dust and become a productivity and profit drain? Controlling dust in your packaging operation involves careful bulk bag design as well as expert bulk bag filling equipment design. Bulk Bag Design #1: Unless a bulk bag has been specifically designed to contain the fines present in your product, particles can sift through [...]
