Bulk Bags or Jumbo Bags, also referred to as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC), are used for transporting or temporary storage of dry bulk solid materials.

The typical bulk bag is constructed of poly woven material and has a capacity up to 1300 kg.  The bulk bags have a variety of bag loop styles, inlet spouts, discharge outlets and sizes specific to individual product characteristics.  Bulk material handling equipment includes both bulk bag filling and bulk bag unloading.

The bulk bag filler typically consists of a bag frame to hold the bag, product flow control valve or gate and an integral weigh scale system with controls. Bulk bag filling systems can range from simple basic frames to a more sophisticated system with pallet dispensers and accumulation conveyors for filled bags.

The bulk bag filling process involves an operator hanging the bag from the filler frame and attaching the fill spout or neck of the bulk bag to the filler. The standard bulk bag filler incorporates an inflatable neck seal with a dust collection port to reduce airborne dust during the fill cycle. Once the bag is filled to the required weight, the flow of product into the bag is shut off and the filled bag is ready to be removed from the filler.
