Capable of dissipating electrostatic charges, the Pactainer ED® provides reliable protection against the risk of electrostatically induced ignition during filling and emptying of big bags in so-called hazardous areas with explosive atmospheres, such as in the chemical industry.
The Pactainer ED® is made from polypropylene fabric with special interwoven conductive tapes. In conjunction with the earthed lifting loops, the conductive fabric reliably diverts any electrostatic charge and prevents its accumulation on the surface of the bag, thus guaranteeing optimal safety during filling and emptying operations.
Pactainer ED® containers are preferably used for bulk materials with minimum self-ignition energy:
- food products
- chemical substances
- washing and cleaning agents
- semi-finished products for producing paints and lacquers
- wood and plastic products
