Tunnel loops are two continuous tunnels along the side of the FIBC (big bag/jumbo bag). These are easy for one person to pick up and can therefore save labor. For some filling and discharging systems, the forklift truck driver can lift up the FIBC and place it into the filling or discharging system without having to get out of the truck. In addition, this may reduce your pallet usage.
Features of Tunnel Loops
Tunnel Loops, often referred to as Tunnel Lifts, represent a significant innovation in bulk material handling. These bags are equipped with distinctive tunnel-like sleeves on two or more sides, which facilitate easier, faster, and safer lifting and maneuvering using forklifts. The various features of tunnel loops or tunnel lifts are;
- Tunnel Sleeve Design: The incorporation of horizontal sleeves across the bag allows for quick forklift access, reducing the need for additional lifting equipment.
- Durable Construction: Made from strong, resilient materials, these bags are designed to withstand the rigors of industrial use.
- Versatile Handling: The design accommodates various lifting methods, catering to different operational environments.
- Customizable Dimensions: Available in multiple sizes and capacities, these bags can be tailored to specific industry requirements.
Advantages of Using Tunnel Loops
- Enhanced Safety: By providing a more stable lifting process, the risk of accidents and material spillage is significantly reduced.
- Operational Efficiency: The ease of loading and unloading speeds up operations, contributing to higher productivity.
- Cost-Effectiveness: With the need for fewer handling accessories, overall operational costs are reduced.
- Storage Optimization: Their design allows for more efficient storage, both when filled and when not in use.
Applications of Tunnel Loops
Tunnel Loops are versatile and find applications in various industries, including:
- Agriculture: For handling seeds, grains, and fertilizers.
- Construction: Useful for transporting sand, gravel, and other building materials.
- Pharmaceuticals: For secure transportation of bulk drug ingredients.
- Mining: Ideal for the safe transport of minerals and ores.
- Chemicals: Suitable for various chemical powders and granules.
- Food Processing: For transporting bulk food ingredients like flour, sugar, and spices.
- Waste & recycling: Utilized in the transportation of recyclable materials.
Specifications to Consider
When selecting a Tunnel Loop, important specifications include:
- Weight Capacity: Typically ranging from 500 to 2000 kg.
- Material: Generally constructed from high-grade polypropylene for durability.
- Tunnel Dimensions: The size and number of tunnels can be customized based on handling requirements.
Tunnel Loops are a practical solution for industries requiring efficient and safe handling of bulk materials. Their design emphasizes safety and operational efficiency, making them a suitable choice for a wide range of applications. As with any industrial equipment, selecting the right specifications to match specific material handling needs is crucial for optimal performance.
