Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC)

Product Overview

The CSP Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container (FIBC) is a high-end, high containment FIBC used in the pharmaceutical industry. The CSP FIBC 's are designed to be filled and emptied achieving an OEL performance of <1 μg/m³. The FIBC’s are suitable for the storage and transportation of pharmaceutical products. 

CSP supply a wide range of FIBC’s to leading pharmaceutical companies globally.  The FIBC inner liner is made from CSP’s PharmaFlex® material and can be manufactured in a range of volumes to suit consumer requirements.  Industrial hygiene testing has been performed on our FIBC range. This testing validates the use of these FIBC’s for powders with an exposure guideline of <1 μg/m³. The actual test results were non detect which equates to less than <2 ng/m³ OEL.
