FIBC Type D
Bulk Bag: CROHMIQ Type D FIBC

Does Not Require Grounding/Earthing

Safe use:

  • To transport flammable powders
  • When flammable solvents or gases are present around the bag

Do Not Use:

  • When the surface is contaminated or coated with conductive material such as water or grease

Type D FIBC are made from static protective fabric designed to safely prevent the occurrence of incendiary sparks, brush discharges and propagating brush discharges, without the need for a connection from the bulk bag to ground or earth.

CROHMIQ Static Protective Type D FIBC are manufactured with fabric containing quasi-conductive yarns that safely dissipate static electricity into the atmosphere via safe, low-energy corona discharge. The quasi-conductive yarns in CROHMIQ bulk bags do not need to be interconnected. CROHMIQ Static Protective Type D FIBC are designed and engineered to provide full protection against electrostatic hazards without the need for grounding. The use of CROHMIQ fabrics in antistatic bulk bags eliminates the risk of human error associated with the manufacturing and use of groundable Type C FIBC.

As CROHMIQ Type D bulk bags protect against incendiary sparks, brush discharges and propagating brush discharges, CROHMIQ can be used safely to package combustible products and for handling products in combustible and flammable environments.

CROHMIQ Static Protective Type D FIBC have been used for over 15 years to safely package over 50 billion pounds of chemicals, minerals, foods, pharmaceuticals, pigments and other products for the world's most demanding applications.
