This customer - a global leader in chemical products for the refining industry - was in search for a suitable packaging method for their hydroprocessing catalysts. The product (HPC) had to be protected against any form of moisture. Further it was required to reach the maximum possible payload so the FIBC had to be square shaped. In this form the space in the warehouse and in the container would be used to the maximum.
As with all other projects the first step was to get a project team with key members from our customer (in the field of purchasing, QA and technical) and Masterpack Group. The team made a detailed inventory based on the technical aspects and requirements of the FIBC
The first step was to decide the best possible specifications for the customer. The filling equipment, the dimensions of the pallets and many other variables were taken into consideration before the first trial could be performed at the customer's site. The first trial was done at the customer's site together with members of the key team.
