Eliminate product deterioration

FIBC linerIn-liners eliminate product deterioration during transportation and storage

More and more companies are realising the benefits to be gained from shipping and storing sensitive bulk products within Barrier Foil liners

Manufactured by Protective Packaging Limited based in Sale, Cheshire, liners are designed to provide total climatic protection for any products which have a sensitivity to moisture, oxygen and other climatic and biological volatiles. They can also prevent odour transfer either in to or out of the products.

All liners are tailor-made to suit the dimensions and style of the outer packaging. They are particularly suited to Octabins and F.I.B.C.’s and liners can be made open topped with flat base or with a filling and/or discharge spouts, thus ensuring safe filling and emptying of the F.I.B.C. or octabin. Drum liners are manufactured with a “round bottom” to ensure there is no waste product, and they also make drums re-usable.

Barrier Foils are a flexible barrier with the lowest known water vapour and oxygen transmission rates. Industrial polythene lets water vapour and aggressive gasses seep through allowing deterioration of product to occur, but this can be eliminated by the use of Barrier Foil with or without desiccant. Our website shows how this is achieved.

Barrier Foils can save on packaging costs because the amount of desiccant used is reduced dramatically when compared with polythene Shipping costs can also be reduced in some cases due to the reduction in weight.

Vanessa introduces new software package to provide bespoke drawings

barrier foil pouchesHaving moved from Purchasing to Customer Support as part of my training with PPL, my first project was to train up the Customer Support and Quality Control teams on our new drawing software, Visio.

As I had never used the program before, I spent my first 2 days with our IT Manager in order to gain a full understanding of how the Visio package works. He showed me how to use the different drawing tools and how to employ them to achieve the bags and features required for our industry. I then put templates of our most commonly requested pouches and bags onto the system so that these can be accessed and adjusted easily as and when required.

Once I had completed my training, I began training people on a 1:1 basis. It has taken just under 3 weeks to train up both departments and everyone has taken well to the new software. We are confident that Visio will improve our drawing capabilities and allow us to continue to produce high quality, bespoke drawings for our customers. The final aim is to create an up to date Visio database for all of our customers’ drawings.
