How is such a linerbag installed in a container?
  • Inspect the bulk package for shipping damage, then walk liner to nose of container. (Figures 1 and 2)
  • Remove the tape holding the two bulkheads together.
  • Walk the rear bulkhead back towards the container's rear doors (approximately 15 feet) and lean the bulkhead against the container's wall.
  • Wedge the front bulkhead into place at the nose of the container.
  • Secure the front nailing strip at the bottom of the bulkhead using 8 nails spaced 12 inches apart.
  • Open the two loading ports to allow air into the liner. The will make it easier to complete the installation process. (Figure 3.)
  • Continue walking the rear bulkhead towards the rear doors and wedge into place there (see Figure 4).
  • Put the rear bulkhead bracing in place (this bracing will be necessary for reinforcement of the rear bulkhead during the discharge tilting process).
  • Inflate liner with air to remove any wrinkles on the floor or walls.
How do I load the container?
  • Be sure to properly ground the container during loading and discharge to reduce the possibility of static electrical discharge.
  • There are several possibilities: Gravity, Pneumatics, or Conveyance
How is a container linerbag loaded and unloaded?

Essentially, we can configure your liner to work with your existing loading and unloading system. If you are new to bulk, our expertise is available to guide you in the selection of suitable loading equipment and discharge equipment.

Why should I use your linerbags?

Unlike many of our competitors, we purposefully choose not to patent our products. This does not imply that we are less innovative. In fact, just the opposite is true. Because a patent lasts for so many years and is time consuming and expensive to get, some of our competitors are still promoting their "patented" technology that is over 10 years old. We want you to have the latest in innovation without having to pay for the "patent premium". So, how do we protect ourselves from competition? We provide superior customer service and fair pricing for our products. Wouldn't you rather have that kind of innovation?
