Cleanliness is essential when it comes to the mass production of bulk bags. It ensures consistent quality and optimal performance of these packaging solutions. Bulk bags, in particular, require the highest level of cleanliness to meet hygiene standards and avoid contamination during storage or transportation. 

As a leading bulk bag manufacturer in South Africa, Custom Bulk Bags understands the importance of keeping our products clean and safe for use. We produce up to 3.5 million bulk bags per year, all of which have a minimum safety factor rating of 5:1. Our products can safely hold between 500kg and two tonnes of material per bag, depending on your specifications.

Cleanliness is a fundamental aspect of international certifications and quality standards, such as the ISO 9001 certification. This is the global standard for quality management systems and it ensures that companies maintain strict quality management processes that meet customer needs. ISO 9001 certification provides proof of value and quality, improving customer confidence and enhancing competitiveness.

How to clean and inspect bulk bags properly

Cleanliness at Custom Bulk Bags

At Custom Bulk Bags, hygiene and cleanliness are prioritised to meet our ISO certification standards and customer expectations. The company employs comprehensive processes to ensure that its products are clean and of the highest quality. 

One of the processes used by Custom Bulk Bags to maintain cleanliness is metal detector scans. These scans detect foreign materials and metal objects, such as pins, needles and shards that may have entered the bulk bags during the manufacturing process, ensuring the bags are free of metal debris. 

The company also uses industrial vacuum cleaners to suck out any excess debris from the bulk bags before packing them. This eliminates any foreign materials that may contaminate the loads during storage or transportation.

The hygiene standards at our factories in Durban and Bloemfontein are also critical to ensuring optimal cleanliness of the bulk bags. Custom Bulk Bags enforces strict cleanliness and hygiene protocols that comply with regulatory requirements. The factory floors, machines and equipment are kept clean to prevent contamination.
