Tallpack International develops perfect packaging solution for very fine, air-entrained powders

Tallpack has worked with a customer to develop effective 10kg to 25kg packaging for very fine, moisture-sensitive and air-entrained powders. The main challenge involved finding a controlled way to allow large amounts of air to escape from “inside” the powder during the filling process. Air escapes from the concerned powders extremely slowly, which can present issues during transport. When such bags are palletised, they present a risk for pallet stability during storage and transport. The intensive development process was started because regular ventilation openings in existing bags were too big for very fine powders and resulted in powder loss.
