How to load a Big Bag according to its filling method?

The use of Big Bags is an economic and ecological solution for the storage and transportation of all your bulky waste and various materials from industrial productions. The Big Bag is a real asset for avoiding clutter at work sites. These highly robust bags, made of textile, resist abrasion perfectly. Equipped with straps, their handling with a forklift is facilitated. There are different models of Big Bags adapted to the nature of the transported materials. However, it's also important to choose a product whose filling type is compatible with your activity. The Big Bag with a filling skirt is ideal for directing the loading inside the bag, the Big Bag with a chute facilitates the use of a chute or sleeve, while the bag with open-top is commonly used for handling various construction materials, such as sand or debris. Read our information on Big Bags to learn how to load your OTEXIO Big Bag according to its filling method.

The Big Bag with filling skirt

These bags are equipped with a skirt that serves to protect the load from moisture or other inconveniences. They also have straps to facilitate the transportation of the filled bag. During filling, you can choose to fold the skirt or use it to direct the loading towards the bottom of the bag. We recommend placing a support under the bag or placing it on a stable surface. You can use a pallet or place your bag directly on the ground as long as it's flat. If you use a filling station, make sure that the characteristics of your Big Bag with a filling skirt are compatible with your equipment, namely:

  • The size and capacity of the bag must be suitable for the load, as indicated in the product datasheet.
  • The adjustment of the bags in height and width using the fork spacing must be properly done.
  • The forklift must be compatible with the weight of the load to ensure your safety during lifting or emptying of the bag.

The Big Bag with filling chute

The Big Bag with a filling chute is specially designed to receive powders, grains, granules, or various pasty products. It's ideal for filling a seed drill or any reservoir intended for storing bulk fertilizers or other fertilizers. Just like the Big Bag with a filling skirt, it's compatible with the use of a filling station. The advantage of this bag lies in the simplicity of the system. Just insert the chute or sleeve into the designated orifice to proceed with its filling. This way, material losses are minimized since, no matter how fine they are, they are directed straight to the bottom of the bag. Additionally, the filling speed and the technician's involvement are also optimized. Thanks to two sewn ties on the chute, closing the bag is also made easier. The dimensions of the chute are proportional to those of the Big Bag.

The open-top Big Bag

The open-top Big Bag is the most classic bag. It's generally used for evacuating various types of waste and transporting building materials, such as sand or gravel. Completely open on top, it's often filled manually. If you don't have a forklift, we recommend opting for a Big Bag support. This folding device holds the bag in place during filling. This folding support is suitable for use on construction sites, in factories, or at sorting centers. The device is removed once the Big Bag is filled or if the bag is too worn. Then, you simply install a new one.
