|64697382: MEGABASE BAG
Stability has always been a concern with bulk bags. To address that concern companies began supplying baffle bags. Unfortunately baffle bags are expensive and create their own issues. The MegaBase® addresses those issues and typically at a lower price. The MegaBase® offers similar stability to baffle bags and has significantly less contamination concerns.
SEMI-BAG WITH LINER
companies have had issues with liners coming out of the bulk bags
as they discharge or slipping down into the bags as they are
filled. Until the 'Perma' Liner® the best answer was an expensive
preformed liner with Tabs taped to it. AmeriGlobe did not believe
that that was the best answer. We decided that there had to
be a way to attach a gusseted liner firmly to the bulk bag. The 'Perma'
Liner® was the result. The 'Perma' Liner® uses circumferential
glue lines to attach even a normal gusseted liner to a bulk
CONE TOP TO FLAT TOP FABRIC TRANSPORT BAG
you have ever seen a coffee bag you have experienced the problem
we were out to fix. Bulk Bags by their very nature are flexible. With
nothing to support them they tend to slump, bulge, and sometimes even
roll. Since the only thing available to support the bulk bag was the
product itself, we knew we had to find a way to get the bag completely
full and to keep the product locked down.
To do this we developed
the Cone to Flat Top, also known as the Load 'n' Lock Top®. This
top forms a cone to allow the cone formed by the product to rise
up above the shoulder of the bulk bag. Then we added a draw string
to cinch up the excess fabric of the top sheet to Lock it into
PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR APPLYING AN ADHESIVE TO THE INTERIOR SURFACE
OF A BULK BAG AND GLUEING A PLASTIC LINER WITHIN THE BAG
Having an innovation like liner attachment is worthless without
a consistent way to apply it. We designed a machine to inflate
the bulk bag and spray circumferential glue lines. This machine applies
a consistent amount of glue.
liner can then be placed into the bulk bag and inflated. The inflation
of the liner ensures that the liner is positioned properly in
the bag and creates pressure to help improve the adhesion between
the bag and liner.
BULK BAG WITH INTERNAL BAFFLES
companies offer baffle bags. AmeriGlobe offered them too, but
we never liked the "pillowing" that happens on the sides
of the bulk bags. We experimented with various designs and cut out
various patterns. Most of the holes in the baffles deform when
stress is applied to them so we switched the shape to the one
that can not deform, the triangle. AmeriGlobe's design makes getting
the corners of the bulk bag full easier and gives the sides of the
bags a smoother appearance.
DISCHARGE OUTLET FOR A BULK BAG UTILIZING A SIDE ENTRY RELEASE
of our customers did not want to reach under the bulk bag to untie
it for discharging because of safety concerns. AmeriGlobe's technical
team worked to design a system that would allow both the drawstring
and the tie to be released from the side of the bulk bag. This is called the Remote Release Discharge.
METHOD FOR CLEANING BULK BAGS
landfill costs, increased resin costs and improved environmental
awareness have increased the need for a safe way to reuse bulk
bags. AmeriGlobe's bag manufacturing experience gave a firm base
to inspect and repair bulk bags but there was still the problem of
getting the bags clean. Some of our competitors were simply shaking
the bags out, we wanted a better way.
solution was a machine that used a combination of airflow and
brushing. Our machine inflates the bag and pushes it against a rapidly
spinning brush. This action shakes loose the product on the inside
and outside of the bulk bag. The integrated collection system gathers
the removed product to be returned to the customer for reprocessing
METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR STABILIZING BULK BAGS DURING EMPTYING
had a project for a customer that wanted to replace 1,100 lb boxes
with our Portabulk bag. They used vacuums to remove the product
from the boxes and did not want to change that part of their system.
Since bulk bags are not free standing as they discharge, we had
to develop a way to keep the bag upright while it is emptied.
Our solution was a machine that tensions the bag and holds the
vacuum wand vertical.
BULK BAG PALLET TUBE APPARATUS
changing regulation for imported and exported pallets are forcing
companies to look at alternatives to standard wooden pallets.
The idea of attaching plastic channels to the bottom of a bulk
bag to act as a pallet replacement makes sense. The difficulty
occurs when you try to hold the channels in place. After much
testing we decided that something other than the tightness of
the attachment was key to keeping the channels in place. AmeriGlobe
developed a channel that was shaped to use the product in the
bulk bag to help anchor it in place
BULK BAG WITH SUPPORT SYSTEM
of the issues companies have encountered when attaching plastic
channels to the bottom of a bulk bag is a loss of stability when
stacking and collapsing of the channels. To keep the cost of the
channels low, suppliers make them as light as possible. To support
the channels and improve the base for stacking, AmeriGlobe developed
a way to allow the bag to come down between the channels in a
controlled way. This greatly increases the surface area of the
bottom of the bulk bag and takes 60% of the product weight off of the
