Combined with an aluminium barrier foil liner, F.I.B.Cs can be used to pack bulk products which before had to be shipped in sealed containers such as steel, plastic or fibreboard drums. This is due to the F.I.B.C’s inability to provide complete climatic protection for very hygroscopic and oxygen sensitive materials. Not only does the aluminium barrier foil liner with an F.I.B.C offer a material cost saving, but shipping space efficiency can be improved by up to 40% over drums.
All of Protective Packaging’s liners are tailor-made to suit the dimension and style of the F.I.B.C. They can be made open topped with a flat base or with filling and/or discharge spouts, thus ensuring safe processing of the product. These liners can also be fitted with valves that facilitates gas flushing of the liner allowing residual oxygen to be displaced, vacuuming of the liner and taking samples of the residual air in the liners for analysis, all without the need to open up the hermetically sealed liner. Liners are suitable for food contact, and hot fill products up to 160°C and applications requiring static dissipation.
