Connecting Slings With Bulk Bags

Posted on - 11th September 2020

If you have recently started using bulk bags for your products, one of the questions you may be wondering about is - how do I connect slings?

For our latest blog, Centurion Packaging is going to talk you through the connection process.

Your Guide to Using Slings

Once the sling is connected with the bag body, there are numerous forms such as top lifting, bottom lifting and side lifting. They are all connected by suture and with the high strength of the sling, the base cloth and suture can't reach a certain strength. They also cannot ensure the overall high performance of your bulk container.

Bulk bags mainly contain massive, granular or powdery objects with the physical density and the loose degree of contents having different effects on the overall performance.

When judging the performance of bulk containers, it is necessary to test the product close to the customer's load as much as possible. This is referred to as the 'standard filler specially used for testing' which is the technical standard used to meet the challenge of the market economy.

There is generally no issue with a bulk container through a lifting test. There are two scenarios when the bags fall down in the hoisting of the port, railway and truck: one is that the operation is incorrect, with the other being that the type of bulk bag does not pass the hoisting test.

For a bulk container with a safety factor of more than 5 times, two or one of the four rings must have the tensile performance of more than twice and a half of rated load. If the two slings are disconnected, the whole bulk container will not have any issues.

Bulk bags from Centurion Packaging are widely used, especially for packing bulk cement, grain, chemical raw materials, feed, starch, minerals and other powder, granular objects, even dangerous goods including calcium carbide, which are very convenient for loading, unloading, transportation and storage.

The most popular process for bulk containers is in the form of one ton and one pallet, meaning one bag per pallet.
