Why bulk packaging for petrochemicals?
Bulk packaging is widely used in the petrochemical industry to transport large quantities of liquid or solid materials. The primary purpose of bulk packaging is to reduce the cost of transportation and improve the efficiency of logistics. It also allows for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials, as specialized containers are designed to prevent leaks and spills. Other benefits of bulk packaging include the reduction of packaging waste, as fewer containers are required, and the ability to load and unload materials more quickly. Bulk packaging is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution for transporting petrochemical products.
The procedure of bulk packaging:
Transporting bitumen and fuel oil by bulk requires careful planning and execution to ensure safety and efficiency. The process involves loading the product onto specialized tankers and transporting it to its destination. The tankers must follow strict safety regulations and have the equipment to prevent spills and leaks. The product is typically heated to a specific temperature to ensure it can be pumped and unloaded at its destination.
When choosing a transportation company, it's essential to consider their experience, reputation, and safety record. It's also crucial to ensure they have the necessary permits and certifications to transport hazardous materials.
Overall, transporting bitumen and fuel oil can be a challenging process, but with proper planning and execution, it can be done safely and efficiently.
Transportation of oil products by barrel
One of the cylindrical containers that are used for packaging oil products and chemicals for trade can be referred to the barrel.
The barrel is made of metal and has good resistance and strength against weather conditions.
Barrels are the only containers that can carry dangerous substances such as oil, diesel, etc. They are the best option for transportation and storage.
Its dimensions should be considered based on its efficiency and volume, and it is produced in different weights. The metal barrel has high strength and durability, and any material can be stored in it for a long time.
Application of barrel:
Basically, barrels are used for exporting any kind of Petro chemical and it is considered one of the strong and standard packages. Also, these barrels can show high resistance against fire and moisture, which can increase the durability of the product in the barrel.
Metal barrels have different thicknesses, which must be carefully considered during use.
Advantages of using barrel:
Barrels are considered one of the most important and reliable high-risk packaging such as crude oil and are highly popular among people due to their fire resistance.
Since the barrels’ doors of metal are closed in principle and correctly so, for preventing the entry of pollution, it does not cause corrosion and does not cause problems for the cargo during transportation. The barrel is the only container that has many applications in many industries and transporting oil products.
Metal barrels are usually classified with bituminous, small and standard types and are selected and purchased based on their efficiency.
Barrels do not cause any damage to the environment and can be used for many years without any damage.

What is a jumbo bag?
When a product, any type of product it needs a package and a category, so that it can reach the customer and user safely, we need a jumbo bag.
Jumbo bag or FIBC bags are used to transport dry goods or Liquid is used.
Jumbo bag is made of polypropylene and the volume can be transported in the jumbo bag can be between 500 kg and 2500 kilograms.
Why we use jumbo bag for products of petro chemical?
Static electricity is created when in certain materials, there is an imbalance of electric charge.
When Jumbo Bag quickly fills, or it is discharged because the flow of fine-grained materials, electricity a resident is created.
Preventing the creation of static electricity during packing and transporting flammable materials, it is very necessary. Using jumbo bags have no worries about static electricity control.
Types of jumbo bag
According to the type of materials of jumbo bag, it have different types.
four types of jumbo bags:
- Normal jumbo bag
- conductive jumbo bag
- miscellaneous jumbo bag
- Jumbo bag with lining
Application of normal jumbo bag
This category of normal jumbo bags, the most important type of bags Jumbo bag available in the market.
Normal jumbo bag capacity from 500 to 2000 kg. The dimensions of these bags can be adjusted based on preferences customer needs have changed.
Common jumbo bag application, transfer of other dry materials it is flammable and powdery.
Application of conductive jumbo bag:
This kind of jumbo bag is sometimes titled jumbo bag type C also these bags are made of polypropylene fabrics it is non-conductive.
This material consists of conductive materials that are combined they are woven and therefore for transportation flammable powdered materials such as oil products, or in cases where filling or emptying bags able dusts cause ignition.
Application of miscellaneous jumbo bag:
These bags are made of anti-static fabrics. they are made with static threads.
The use of miscellaneous jumbo bags, transporting and transferring powders flammable or when there are flammable solvents near or around the bag.
Other using of these bags is when water, fat or other such materials spread to the bags they should refrain.
Application of Jumbo bag with lining:
This type of jumbo bag is made with polyethylene multi-layer linings and hence, to save and it is suitable for carrying very fine-grained materials.
To prevent contamination and also maintain product safety, liners in this type of jumbo bags they are sewn or glued.
What is Flexi Tank?
Flexi tank is a type of bag that turns a standard 20ft container into an efficient means of transporting bulk liquids.
Standard flexis are made of polyethylene and polypropylene. Their capacity can be between 16,000 liters and 24,000 liters.
Flexi tanks are used to carry all kinds of liquids, food and petrochemicals.
Types of flexi tank
- Single valve flexi tank: loading and unloading valve from the bottom
- Single valve flexi tank: loading and unloading from above
- Flexi tank with two valves: one loading valve from the top and one emptying valve from the bottom
How many tons is the capacity of flexi tank?
The loading capacity of the Flexi Tank varies depending on the goods to be loaded. Below is the loading amount for several products.
- 22,000 liters of flexi bags for transporting olive oil
- 19,000-liter flexi tank for carrying polyol
- 19,000 liters of flexi bags for handling latex
- 21000-liter flexi tank to carry palm oil
- 20,000-liter flexi tank for transporting glycerin
What kinds of goods can be transported with flexi?
- White oils
- Palm oil
- Edible oils
- Vegetable oils
- Transformer oil
- Fruit concentrates
- Malt extract
- fruit juice
- Lactic acid
- Chlorine hydroxide
What is the advantage of using Flexi Bag?
- Environment: Use of degradable materials in Flexi Tank
- Saving time and work: easier and faster work than carrying with barrels or drums
- Low cost: saving on transportation and cleaning costs
- Higher volume: up to 24000 liters of liquid can be loaded. The weight of the barrel is removed and a larger volume of goods can be transported.
Advantages of transportation with flexi tank
Compared to iso tanks and other shipping methods such as barrels, IBCs, and tankers, flexi tanks reduce the cost of transporting non-hazardous materials.
Quick and easy installation makes it possible to perform the operation without the need for high specialized knowledge. The outlet valve from the top and bottom creates various loading and unloading capabilities. After emptying the material, the size of the flexi tank by folding it reaches about one cubic meter, which is equal to 2% of its loaded size. In short, the following can be mentioned as the advantages of using flexi tank.
- Door-to-door portability without moving from one container to another
- Placing in a container and easy to transport with all kinds of vehicles
- One-way shipping, no need to return the container
- Low tariff for ground transportation by a flatbed tug compared to a tanker tug
- loading very simply and to unload by one person
- Impossibility of cargo contamination
- Lighter weight of the container than the iso tank by at least one ton
