Are you ready to replace your silo containers, steel containers or flo-bins, and you aren’t looking forward to the investment of renewing the equipment? Or are you looking for an alternative to the silo container? Indus’ innovative big bag system offers a cost-effective solution. In this article we discuss the advantages of the unique big bag system compared to flo-bins.

The advantages of the Indus Neva are flexibility and saving storage space, easy cleaning, improved safety and lower costs. This allows you to optimize material storage and production.

Efficient storage by stacking

Thanks to the design of the Indus Neva, big bags can easily be stored and stacked up to 7 meters or 6 tons. Benefit from efficient storage options and maximize your space utilization. With the use of the Indus Neva, compared to a bulking 100×100 big bag 1-level stacking, the following storage space can be saved:

  • Stack 2-high: 40.50%
  • Stack 3-high: 60.33%
  • Stack 4-high: 70.25%

Easy cleaning

When material gets stuck in the silo container it is necessary to clean it. This process is time consuming and takes up staff. This problem is not present when working with big bags. Big bags will be recycled, making cleaning unnecessary. You can save valuable time and labor.

Safety

The simple design of the big bag handling system ensures a safe working environment. Compared to silo containers, handling and moving the big bag pallet on which the big bag rests is much safer. It reduces the risk of injury for employees such as forklift drivers and production workers.

Lower costs

The costs of the Indus big bag handling system are much lower than the costs for stainless steel silo containers. The starting price of the Indus Neva is approximately € 300 each, which is more than 5 times less than the starting price of a silo container. The Indus Neva allows 1-1.5 tons of product to be safely stored and transported.

Flexibility and space saving

The big bag system offers maximum flexibility in internal and external transport and storage. Unlike silo containers, which take up a lot of space even when not in use, the big bag handling systems can be easily moved and stored in limited space. Ideal during periods of a dip in production.

Indus aims to accelerate the transformation towards sustainable, accessible and safe handling of solids in the industry. Would you like advice on the correct use of big bags in storage or production? Feel free to contact us.
