One unit of this FLEXI product includes a single-trip inner container, a transport bag and a wooden pallet. The container itself is available in two sizes; 1000 or 900 liters (app. 265 or 238 US gallons).

The disposable inner container is always clean, and there is no need for maintenance or washing. The bag is strong and durable to withstand handling and transport.

The inner liner is matched with the material that will be inside the bag, depending on the characteristics of the material.

The outer transport bag and wooden pallet can easily be disposed of, and expensive return freights of empty IBCs, totes or drums can be avoided altogether.

Fluid-Bag containers are used in lots of different industries, for example to handle lubes, grease, ink, sealants, coatings and adhesives, but also for food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste and many more.

Advantages with Fluid-Bag FLEXI

There are many advantages with the Fluid-Bag concept. Here are some of them:

1. Low residue

Residue in a flexible 1000-liter container from Fluid-Bag can be as low as 0.5-1.0%. This is a result of stretching the bag and, when necessary, rolling of the inner container with the best discharge equipment.

This effectiveness means that you avoid unnecessary waste in your manufacturing process and can make the most of every drop of product.

2. Reduced carbon footprint

By choosing the right suppliers you can reduce your emissions within Scoop 3. Fluid-Bag's products have a low carbon footprint and can therefore help you reduce your overall climate impact.

Fluid-Bag FLEXI is the product of ours that has the lowest carbon footprint – and if you would like to know the CO2 emission values, please contact us and we are happy to share the third-party study.

3. Eliminate contamination

Fluid-Bag is a closed container system. Since the bag is flexible, there is no need to let air into the container, so you avoid the risk of particle, bacterial or moisture contamination.

The protective barriers in the inner container ensure the quality of your product. Get inspired by Petro-Canada and their use of Fluid-Bag flexible bulk containers for this reason.

4. No washing or re-conditioning

If you are looking for a disposable IBC tote or flexible container for bulk-packaging, Fluid-Bag FLEXI is the best option.

With Fluid-Bag FLEXI, costly and time-consuming cleaning and maintenance of rigid steel or plastic containers can be a thing of the past.

5. More free storage space

At Fluid-Bag we understand the value of saving space at your plant. In only 2.5 square meters, you can store 20 000 liters worth of Fluid-Bag containers.

Instead of investing in rooms or services for cleaning and re-conditioning, use your space in your production for more proactive needs.

6. No return transportation

WithFluid-Bag FLEXI, planning and handling becomes easier – no matter if you have long transportation, or you would like to deliver your product to the local bakery (i.e. fruit preparations) or the narrow mining shaft (i.e. lubes and greases).

Switch to Fluid-Bag and reduce both costs and pollution caused by return transport of empty containers.
