Conical Base Bags
The conical bag is a four panel design that is shaped at the base at varying angles depending on the product going into the bag.
Some products are not free flowing and ‘clump’ when transported in bulk bags. The conical bag is designed to assist with the discharge process, providing a tunnel like base.
There are some negatives with using conical bags, mainly they are difficult to keep square on a pallet. To counter this, four flaps can be added to the sides, which will help form a base, allowing the bag to sit better on a pallet without restricting the conical bottom.
This style of bag is also helpful if the product ‘sticks in the corners’ of the bag. The ‘shoulders’ are removed to allow free flow.
