Eliminating Product Waste from Seam Leakage

We received a request from a customer that produces flour for commercial baking. Food grade products for human consumption have strict stability standards and seal requirements to protect mixtures--product must be fully contained without leakage during shipping and storage. While using a competitor's coated/sift-proof bag, the customer experienced significant leakage, resulting in considerable product loss and more significantly, a potential breach of product integrity.

Our engineers recommended discontinuing the use of U-Panel bulk bags--given their susceptibly to leakage at side corners and seams. InterBULK moved the customer to a tubular-style FIBC constructed of a higher quality material and designed with a tight-roll seam construction. The tight-roll seam created a true sift-proof barrier thereby eliminating the product leakage problem completely. The stronger bags also ensured stable product transport and durable storage.

The customer immediately realized cost savings and an improved bottom line with the new InterBULK packaging solution. For more information about InterBULK bags designed for the food processing industry, please refer to the table below or contact us directly.

Case Study Summary

Product Description
Designed custom bulk bag for baking mixes (flour)
Problem
We received a request from a customer that produces flour for commercial baking. Food grade products for human consumption have strict stability standards and seal requirements to protect mixtures--product must be fully contained without leakage during shipping and storage. While using a competitor's coated/sift-proof bag, the customer experienced significant leakage, resulting in considerable product loss and more significantly, a potential breach of product integrity.
Analysis
The U-Panel bulk bags in use were not a good fit for fine food-grade product because the side corners and seams were susceptible to leakage
Solution
Our engineers recommended discontinuing the use of U-Panel bulk bags. InterBULK moved the customer to a tubular-style FIBC constructed of a higher quality material and designed with a tight-roll seam construction. The tight-roll seam created a true sift-proof barrier thereby eliminating the product leakage problem. The stronger bags also ensured stable product transport and durable storage. The customer immediately realized cost savings and an improved bottom line with the new InterBULK packaging solution.
