Is loading dust and powders into and out of FIBC Type C bags, as easy and safe as you think?

To protect your plant and personnel during a Type C bag transfer operation always use a FIBC grounding system with two grounding clamps that will check the resistance through the conductive threads/wires built into the bag are at a resistance less than 1 x 108 (IEC 61340-4-4, Electrostatics) or 1 x 107 (NFPA 77 Recommended Practice on Static Electricity) depending on the type of bag used.

It will also allow any static charge generated to be safely directed to a designated grounding point in the local area.
