Bulk bags, also known as jumbo bags, super sacks, big bags, have been used for decades of years. They are widely used in a range of industries and brought incredible benefits.

When people choose the bulk bag, they have to figure out how to calculate the bag’s capacity to meet their demands. A bulk bag’s capacity indicates how much bulk material it can load. Using the big bags to transport and store sand, concrete, food or other material, you should know the capacity of the bags which tells the volume of the material can fit in. Normally, 1 cubic meter bulk bag can be considered as standard-sized bag.

Generally speaking, volume of bulk bags follows the basic formula which volume equals length times width times height. Under this formula, a 1-meter times 1-meter times 1-meter big bag can hold about 1 cubic meter of material. As we can see, bags with smaller or larger volume can hold less or more capacity of products.

The best way to customize dimension of bulk bags is to adjust the height, comes in standard length 0.9meter times width 0.9meter, that allows non-baffle jumbo bags fit onto the standards pallets. Adding size of length and width will make the bulk bag too big for most pallets, however, adding height can help increase the capacity of bag while still keeping the bags convenient for pallet store and transport.

To safely using the bulk bag for your business, you have to understand the SWL( safety working load), which means distinguish volumetric capacity of material can fit into the bulk bag. Different FIBCs have different maximum loading weights and safe dimension limits. Consult with our professional technical team for further discussion the suitable size of big bags you need.
