Fluid-Bag Containers for Industrial Grease
Fluid-Bag is a flexible IBC grease container of 1000 or 900 l (265 / 240 gal.) for industrial bulk greases, oils, coolants and other liquid and semi-solid products.
Fluid-Bag replaces standard grease drums, grease bins and similar containers, ensuring cleaner and easier handling of industrial grease in various manufacturing industries. Fewer and faster grease container changeovers save time in the manufacturing process, for example steel manufacturers, producers of bearings and other components.

Fluid-Bag's flexible grease containers can be stretched and squeezed and therefore emptied much more efficiently. Using our discharging equipment such as Tau Xtractor or a Discharge Roller, you will only be left with 1-2 % residue in the bag, instead of 4-5 % as in the case with grease drums. This actually means that you will have 4 to 10 times less grease waste in a Fluid-Bag than in 200 litre drums.
This easy example sums it up pretty well (tests performed with NLGI 3 grease):
• residue using Fluid-Bag: 5-10 kg/1000 l
• residue using 200 litre drums: 20-50 kg/1000 l
Always Clean Grease
The Fluid-Bag container for grease stays sealed during filling, handling and discharge. Since the Fluid-Bag is flexible, there is no need to let air inside during discharge, the inner container simply collapses inside as the grease is leaving the bag, as the example image to the right shows. For this reason, there is no risk of exposure to particles or moisture when handling bulk grease. With a 1000 liter container instead of a 200 l drum you will need fewer changeovers, which also diminishes contamination risks and messy drum changes.
Fluid-Bag containers are a key ingredient in an industrial preventive maintenance strategy - a clean industrial lubricant ensures a well-functioning machinery as well as lower downtime and malfunctions costs.
1 Fluid-Bag equals 4-5 drums, which means you will:
- simplify your grease handling and transports
- reduce storage space
- reduce working time and lower your labor costs for bulk grease handling.
In addition to this, you avoid all cleaning costs thanks to the single-use inner container, and either abolish or drastically reduce your return transport costs.
Rollax, a German manufacturer of automotive parts such as tailored bearings, free wheels and steering bearings, is using Fluid-Bag's container system to discharge grease for their production of high quality strut bearings. Read more here.
