TRUST IN EUROPEAN QUALITY BIG BAGS WHEN USING BIG BAGS IN EXPLOSIVE ENVIRONMENT
WHY CONDUCTIVE BIG BAGS ?
During filling and discharging of polypropylene woven bags the material rubs against the fabric and electric charges emerge. When it comes to an electric discharge it is possible that explosive environment or materials inflame. In order to prevent this, there are special conductive big bag types (or antistatic big bags) that are used in explosive environments and explosive products. Their properties are standardised in IEC 61340-4-4 Ed. 2.0.
Generally, there are two situations that bear danger:
Explosive materials - When explosive materials are filled into big bags the usage of conductive big bags is determined by the minimum ignition energy of the materials. Explosive Environment - An explosive environment can be given by dust, gases or steam. The highest danger is given when the explosive environment consists of gases or steam.
