The highest forces during trucking often appear in the accelerating or braking process. Despite paying attention to the roads, there may be a possibility of an emergency brake. Transportation often causes movement and impacts to goods. During shipping, the heavy seas cause intense forces that may result in the movement of the cargo. Transporting goods by rail may set forces four times higher than from the sea or road transit. Vertical driving direction and reverse forces are especially tremendous. Thus, despite incorporating a safe strapping and/or lashing system to secure the cargo, Dunnage Bags should also be used.
Dunnage Bags are used to secure a cargo and create a bulkhead during transit. These bags are great Void Fillers to prevent movement and absorb impacts in a sea container, rail car, truck, vessel, or intermodal. Dunnage Bags combine IN-LINER (also known as the bladder or balloon) which holds the compressed airtight at high-pressure levels, and OUT-LINER (the cover) to give the bags the shape, stability, and enormous strength. To ensure perfect tightness even under high pressure, all our Dunnage Bags IN-LINER are made of specially extruded polyethene (PE-mixture). At Humi Pak, the OUT-LINER of the Dunnage Bags comes in two different materials – Kraft Paper and Woven Polypropylene (PP).
Available in 1, 2, 4, and 6 ply, these bags can be applied to the in-liner in multiple layers, making it extremely strong. Woven PP Dunnage Bags make a good alternative to Paper Dunnage Bags as they are lighter and recyclable. In addition, it is also water-resistant. During application, place the Dunnage Bags in the gaps between your cargo and start inflating the dunnage bag with compressed air. To fill the bags with ease, simply use our valve systems. At Humi Pak, the two types of valve systems available are Standard Valve and MEGAFlow fast filling valve. The bag is filled enough when it sits tight and unmovable in the vault. Ensure that the bags are not overfilled with compressed air to avoid damage to your cargo.
Humi Pak provides 2 types of Dunnage Bags: Woven PP Dunnage Bag and Paper Dunnage Bag. Click on the products below to know more!
