Also known as Type C Bags, these Type C bags were originally made from non-conductive polypropylene fabrics interwoven with conducting threads, normally sewn in a grid pattern, that connect the bag to ground via a grounding point. The connection to ground or earth during filling and discharging is critical to the safe use of Type C FIBCs. As with any manual operation, ensuring interconnection and grounding of Type C FIBCs is subject to human error.
- Used to safely transport flammable powders.
- Used safely when flammable solvents or gases are present around the bag.
- DO NOT USE when ground connection is not present or has become damaged.
When to use Wales Antistatic FIBCs:
