Knowing the Volume of Woven Polypropylene Sacks

Posted on - 31st December 2020

Bulk bag volume is one of the most crucial characteristics to know when purchasing woven polypropylene sacks from Centurion Packaging.

Knowing the volume of a bulk container allows you to plan for a job plus it lets you know how many bags you will need and therefore how many to purchase. Knowing an accurate figure of how much you can get into a particular bag will save you time, money and effort.

A bulk bags volume can be estimated by multiplying together its dimensions (length, width and height). These three dimensions will be displayed after the name of each bag provided by Centurion Packaging.

What is the Belly Effect?

When calculating the volume of a bulk bag, you may assume that you are measuring a perfect cube, but this is not the case. When a bulk container is filled there will often be a substantial belly effect, where the sides of the container expand beyond their advertised lengths, which is a completely safe and normal process. Frequently the volume of a bag may increase to a significant degree.
