Metal Sulphide Concentrate Case Study: Success in 5 Points

When it comes to supplying bulk bags to the mining and metal processing industry, we know just how important it is to maintain an unbroken supply chain that never lets you down. 

Below is a first-hand account of how we helped solve five major challenges faced by a large, multi-national mining company shipping metal sulphide concentrates around the world.  

Once these MiniBulk design improvements were implemented, the results were immediate, measurable, and rather incredible!

1. Multi-Phase Product 

Their initial concentrate packing process required materials to be charged into bags in slurry form. At the filling stage, 30% of their bulk bags were failing causing excessive rework and adding additional costs. Oxidization of material on the outside of the packaging also led to environmental and handling concerns. 

MiniBulk's Solution 

We designed a new packaging specification with the proper containment properties that met and exceeded their requirements. An upgraded internal liner, with proper resin materials and precise extrusion methods was the key to solving their leaking problem. After implementing the new liner design, the bag failure rate at their filling stage went from 30% to less than 0.1%.

A major change from the often costly and seemingly safe "business as usual." Fill out the form on the right to learn what else MiniBulk accomplished to earn their trust, confidence, and business.
