Tubular Bulk Bags

Tubular Bulk Bags

The Tubular Bag design is one of the most commonly used in flat packaging. This consists of a single piece of fabric which is made into a cylindrical shape and the two edges stitched together. The top and bottom panels can either be sealed or flat panels attached to both sides, thus forming a cylindrical bag.

What are Tubular Bulk Bags?

Tubular bulk bags, a subset of Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC), are cylindrical in shape and crafted from woven polypropylene fabric. Unlike standard FIBCs, which are constructed from flat panels, these bags are made from a continuous tube of fabric, providing a seamless construction. This unique design enhances their strength and durability.

Features of Tubular Bulk Bags

  • Seamless Construction: The tubular design eliminates side seams, reducing the risk of tearing and improving the overall structural integrity.
  • Uniform Shape: The cylindrical shape ensures uniformity in dimensions, facilitating easier handling and stacking.
  • Customizable Filling and Discharge Options: They can be fitted with various top and bottom options like spouts or flat panels, tailored to specific filling and discharge requirements.
  • UV Stabilized: These bags are often UV stabilized, ensuring longevity and resistance to degradation when stored outdoors.
  • High Safe Working Load (SWL): They are designed to safely hold a significant amount of weight, which varies based on the specifications of the bag.

Advantages of Using Tubular Bulk Bags

Tubular Bags have several advantages for various applications. With the cylindrical design there are no seams at the broad side of the bag. These bags are easier to make and are more cost-effective for purchase as well.

  • Enhanced Strength and Safety: The seamless design offers added strength, making them safer for transporting and storing heavy materials.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of materials, from fine powders to larger granules.
  • Improved Storage Efficiency: Their uniform shape allows for optimal utilization of storage space.
  • Eco-friendly Option: Reusable and recyclable, they align with sustainable practices in material handling.
  • Cost-Effective: They provide an economical solution for bulk storage and transportation needs.

Applications of Tubular Bulk Bags

Tubular bulk bags are versatile and find applications in diverse industries. They are ideal for:

  • Agriculture: Transporting and storing grains, seeds, and feed.
  • Chemicals: Safe handling of powdered or granulated chemicals.
  • Construction: Carrying sand, gravel, and other construction materials.
  • Food Industry: Ideal for food-grade materials like sugar, salt, and flour.
  • Pharmaceuticals: Used for bulk handling of pharmaceutical ingredients.
  • Mining: Transporting minerals and other extracted materials.


Tubular Bags can efficiently carry materials weighing around 3,500 lb. When selecting tubular bulk bags, consider the following specifications:

  • Dimensions: Tailored to your specific storage and transportation needs.
  • Fabric Type: Options include coated or uncoated fabric, depending on the level of moisture protection required.
  • SWL and Safety Factor: Depending on the weight of the materials to be stored or transported.
  • Top and Bottom Design: Customizable for specific filling and discharge requirements.
  • Certifications: Ensure they meet relevant industry standards and regulations.

Tubular bulk bags offer a reliable and efficient solution for bulk material handling. Their unique design and customizable features make them suitable for a wide range of industries, contributing to safer and more efficient operations. As always, it’s important to select the right specifications to match your specific needs.
