Conductive/ groundable bag (Type C)

Conductive type bag (also known as Type C bag) is a FIBC produced from special fabric with interconnected conducting yarns, which dissipates static electricity during filling or discharging process.Proper grounding of FIBC during filling or discharge prevents the accumulation of static electricity and eliminates the risk of dust explosion and ignition.

General description

conductive bag

Dangerous static discharge is safely dissipated to ground through earth bonding point that prevents from accumulation of static electricity.

  • Facts about conductive FIBCs:

    • ・Suitable for filling of combustible powders.
    • ・Using fabric with interconnected conductive yarns.
    • ・Grounding point prevents dust explosion and ignition when filling of FIBC.
    • ・Complies with  IEC(*)standards.

Note: IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission ) is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards concerning electrical and electrotechnical technologies.

How it works

For the production of Conductive bag we use special fabric, with carbon steel wires or silver conductive yarns interwoven at regular intervals.Conductive yarns, forming Faraday Cage remove static electricity through the bonding point, attached on one side of the bag.

Fabric with conductive yarns is very effective for avoiding of discharge of undesirable static electricity. Grounded bag can be safely used in flammable atmosphere with MIE (minimal ignition energy) of greater than 0.14mJ.
