CDF improves the IBC Form-Fit Liner

The CDF engineering team has created a customer benefit by modifying the IBC form-fit liner to include holes in the perforated flaps. These holes were strategically added to help hold the liner in place during filling; by keeping the liner squared, these flaps make fills easier. Once the IBC form-fit liner is filled, the flaps can be detached and used with a winder for dispensing. CDF was the first flexible packaging manufacturer to add holes to the perforated flaps to a number of customized applications. This feature is now part of all of CDF’s stock IBC form-fit liners.

Form-fit IBC liners provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners.

Typical form-fit liner markets include chemicals (adhesives, automotive lubricants, automotive oils, chemicals, coatings, concrete drilling additives, detergents, inks, paints, polymer emulsions); cosmetics (conditioner, cream, lipstick, liquid makeup, lotion, mascara, shampoo); food and beverage (concentrated fruit, edible oils, fish oil, fructose, jams, liquid egg, malts, molasses, pastes, sweeteners, syrups, vinegar, juice, wine); and pharmaceutical.

Flexible Packaging Options

The flexible packaging industry has recently encapsulated two of the largest concerns for consumers, to ensure the secure and safe environment and satisfying the need for a greener footprint. In the adhesive and sealant world, transporting product in drums and pail is a necessity although these containers carry many benefits, sustainability efforts remain on the forefront of consumers’ minds. Flexible packaging options add the sustainability wanted while maintaining the value needed in order to keep this high demand industry moving.

One of the challenges faced by adhesive and sealant manufacturers and transporters is the contamination issues that exist when using the steel drum and pail, such contamination makes it difficult to reuse, recondition, or even recycle. The flexible packaging option keeps the drums/pails clean, this eliminates cleaning and refurbishing costs as well as time constraints, the drum/pail is ready for immediate reuse. Flexible packaging option brings ensures product integrity, it preserves the product purity while presenting stronger sustainability advantages.

The flexible packaging materials weigh significantly less than other packaging formats, this reduces costs in resources for transportation, as well as warehouse space being maximized this formulates into less carbon dioxide emissions.

Flexible packaging offers great value and sustainability benefits to consumers, retailers, and manufacturers by reducing waste, energy used, and greenhouse gas emissions. It presents excellent sustainable choice that satisfies the adhesive and sealant industry while providing a greener footprint.

CDF intermediate bulk container liners ideal for food grade applications

CDF Corporation offers a full assortment of pillow and form-fit IBC liners for the dairy industry.

Pillow-shaped liners are excellent general use liners for intermediate bulk containers. Used in containers from 100 to 330 gallons, pillow liners offer versatility and value. Pillow liners are typically constructed with two or three plies of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and a barrier film when used for aseptic and oxygen-barrier applications. When filled, these tote liners form the shape of a pillow. Pillow liners are designed for both viscous and non-viscous food applications.

Form-fit liners offer IBC fillers and end-users an alternative to pillow liners. Form-fit liners are manufactured to form fit the internal shape of your intermediate bulk container. Form-fit IBC (cube-shaped) liners allow easier filling in square or rectangular intermediate bulk containers and provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners. Form-fit liners are designed for liquids and solids.

Intermediate bulk container liners offer many benefits over drums and rigid bottle & cage IBC totes. Freight costs for filled IBC liners in totes are 25% less than drums because the cube shape allows more volume per pallet. Users can also lower freight costs by pairing liners with knock down bins that collapse and are stackable; drums and rigid totes are not collapsible and stackable. Drums and rigid IBCs must be rinsed to be reused, whereas liners keep intermediate bulk containers clean, eliminating container cleaning costs, resulting in immediate reuse of the container. Product purity is essential to maintaining food quality; food grade liners preserve and protect food products. Wide options of filling and dispensing components are also available for liners, which can be customized to meet each end user’s needs.

Wild Flavors uses CDF’s tote liners

According Wild Flavors Inc., the three facets to marketplace success if color, taste and flavors. Wild flavors are considered a leader in delivering innovative flavors, colors and ingredients as well as processing technology to the food and beverage industry. Located in Erlanger, KY and operating in 190,000-sq-ft facility near a recently opened, 250,000-sw-ft North American distribution center, the company manufactures flavors for a slew of beverages, syrups and dairy products. Some products include yogurts, alcoholic drinks, sodas and more.

The company is also a creator of flavor systems, liquid and dry colors, a Colors from Nature Line, a Health Ingredient Technology & Solutions line, spray dry technology and encapsulation technology. One can imagine that keeping track of so many lines could become rather challenging. The company sought after way in which they would be able to keep count on all products that were in delivery, as well as product accountability within the warehouse.

Wild Flavors sought after intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) to transport their beverage flavors in bulk inbound and outbound. Wild Flavors now uses 300-gal, plastic intermediate bulk containers from Container and Pallet Services, or CAPS, this introduction  replaces the 55-gal drums, the collapsible IBCs offer Wild Flavors’ customers a convenient container that reduces handling time, labor and cost within its facility. The convenience of IBCs allow Wild Flavors to reduce cost associated with labor and packaging without having to invest in containers, manage the reverse logistics or bear any ongoing cleaning/maintenance costs. Furthermore, Wild Flavors no longer has to prepare, delabel or store any bulk packaging.

The movement of each container is accounted for within the CAPs comprehensive tracking service. Each container is registered and tracked by any internet access point, also anywhere at any time.

As business grew Wild Flavors’ operation team was looking for opportunities to improve their efficiency. While business boomed there became more of a demand for easy-to-use containers that still offered the same benefits of a one-way tote, IBC offered that win-win solution and thus Wild Flavors’ grew out of the smaller drum and into the IBC.

In fact, Wild Flavors employs the totes on a pay-per-us basis, this means it pays for the on-way shipping of the IBC and CAPS then redistributes the container through a collection of 14 customer service centers across North America. These depots provide and reposition the IBCs from end users to manufacturing facilities. Once delivered to the manufacturing facility, reporting and tracking is immediately available.

Also available at the depot is repair of the container, cleaning, storage and repairs, which relieves Wild Flavors from this duty. The only responsibility left to Wild Flavors is to place a container order, “We place the order for containers and set up and fill them,” states David Haase, VP of operations. He continues by adding, “The new IBCs also conform to certain food and beverage customers’ no-wood policies that restrict wooden pallets in production areas.”

PD learns that Drew Merrill, VP of Business Development and Strategic Planning at CAPS that the customer service centers and logistics group in Livonia, MI handle the responsibilities of repositioning the IBCs back to an applicable service center stating, “We leverage such methods of transportation, including boxcar, stack train and more, and have a network of transportation providers.” He adds, “We have standardized on 300- and 315-gallon IBC types so that we can pool our assets among multiple customers.”

Wild Flavors as eliminated the used of the wooden pallet, the IBC has the capabilities to be stacked five high although Wild Flavors opt to stack them two high. Approximately five of the 55-gallon drums can fit in one of the new IBCs, depending on the weight of the product. CAPS obtains its knocked down Acra ComboLife IBCs through Schoeller Acra Systems. These come form fitted, 3.2 mil, and three ply bag liners from CDF Corp. (www.CDF1.com), accessories and top-and/or bottom discharge outlets, along with setup training, technical service and location support. The outer housing is constructed from polyethylene and is rugged enough to prevent damage from over-stacking and from weather and climate. The IBCs come with an integral pallet for four-way entry.

The container are durable enough to fend off damage from forklifts and to the products inside, this translates into a better relationship with Wild Flavors customers, Merrill comments on the durability stating, “We have yet to exceed the number of trips for any given containers.”

Each week, numerous containers are transported to the Wild Flavors plant in Erlanger from CAPS’ Cincinnati service depot for filling on single-lane Mettler Toledo Hi-Speed equipment. For setup, operators install the sidewalls and lock them into place with their corner posts; next the team inserts the film liner and lastly activating the filling systems. The containers are then equipped with a label for identification purposes, 3 of 9 linear bar coding and a passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag embedded into the base that can be scanned by wireless, hand held scanners.

The scanned data is then uploaded onto the CAPS internet based CAPS-TRAC tracking/inventory management systems database. This makes tracking, shipment history, damages, loss and other factors as it follows the IBCs throughout the supply chain.

After the IBCs are filled, they are then scanned and shipped to customers. Once the customer has emptied the IBC the liner is discarded and the container is collapsed, each IBC is up by CAPS for repositioning to a nearby service center. Upon arrival at the CAPS service center, the IBC is scanned, cleaned and inspected and finally stored until needed again. CAPS says it works with the customers to ensure a timely return of the container.

Wild Flavors incorporated the 300-gal sized container into their manufacturing process in January 2006. Each container measures 48x44x44.4 in. OD. Haase stated that labor and maintenance costs are being evaluated; even so the IBC has lessened filling times. Haase states, “We’ve had no damage or loss of product and have improved efficiencies. They do have a favorable impact on our customers’ disposal costs. We’re very pleased with the containers.”

Flexible Options

Flexible packaging offers considerable value and sustainability benefits.

Ensuring a secure, safe environment is paramount to consumers, retailers and manufacturers alike. Recent developments in packaging technology satisfy these safety concerns while providing a greener footprint. Traditionally, many adhesive and sealant manufacturers have used pails and drums for transporting their products. Although these containers provide many benefits, other products can better satisfy a large gap in the market—sustainability. Flexible packaging offers considerable value and sustainability benefits to manufacturers, retailers and consumers while addressing the many packaging challenges faced by the adhesives and sealants industry.

Multiple Benefits

Residue control is a substantial problem for the adhesives and sealants industry. Various components used to manufacture adhesives and sealants can contaminate a steel drum or pail, making it difficult to reuse, recondition or recycle. Flexible packaging keeps drums and pails clean, eliminating container cleaning costs and resulting in immediate reuse of drums and pails.

Product purity is essential to maintaining product quality and performance; flexible packaging preserves and protects products. In addition, full product recovery is vital for valuable raw materials, and flexible packaging increases product recovery.

Flexible packaging also offers several less obvious benefits that are strong sustainability advantages. Flexible packaging materials weigh significantly less than other packaging formats, and they ship and store flat, so transportation and warehouse efficiency is maximized. Flexible packaging is also manufactured with less energy than rigid packaging and containers. Carbon dioxide emissions are further reduced by the space savings advantage created by using flexible packaging over pails and drums. Flexible packaging also provides important source reduction benefits. Source reduction is the Environmental Protection Agency’s preferred waste management strategy.

Liners

Flexible packaging exists in a number of formats: liners for pails, drums, intermediate bulk containers and bag-in-box systems, and inserts for pails and drums. Liners are heat sealed, include seams and have wall thicknesses ranging from 4-12.8 mil. Liners are available for 5-gal pails; 12-, 16-, 30-, 55- and 85-gal drums; 55- to 300-gal intermediate bulk containers; and 1.25-, 2.5- and 5-gal bag-in-box systems.

Liner types include flat seamed, round bottom, cube shaped and pillow shaped. Flat-seamed and round-bottom liners for pails and drums are designed for easy installation and can be simply twisted and tied off to protect contents. Cube-shaped liners are manufactured to form fit the internal shape of an intermediate bulk container or bag-in-box system. No pockets or folds trap residual product while emptying cube-shaped liners. Pillow-shaped liners for intermediate bulk containers and bag-in-box systems take the form of a pillow when filled. Pillow-shaped liners are typically constructed with two or three plies of linear low-density polyethylene and a barrier film when used for aseptic and oxygen-barrier applications.

Liners are manufactured through a heat-sealing process, where a thin, clear thermoplastic sheet is bonded by heat, time and pressure to form a closure. Heat-sealing technology is simple in concept and provides cost-effective products, but the process is not trivial. Tight tolerances, proven materials, precise timing and temperature control all play key roles in providing products that meet demanding requirements. A variety of films can be heat sealed, including metalized polyester and foil laminates for moisture protection, conductive laminates and anti-static films for volatile materials, nylon and co-extruded films for chemical resistance, polypropylene for high-temperature requirements, and low-density polyethylene for general use.

Inserts

Inserts are vacuum formed or blow molded, seamless and have wall thicknesses ranging from 10-24 mils. Inserts are available for 2- to 6-gal pails and 12-, 16-, 30- and 55-gal drums. The four types of drum inserts include: straight sided, accordion, combination and vented. Straight-sided inserts fit smoothly into new drums and are ideal when using follower plates. Accordion inserts have flexible, pleated side walls that accommodate variations in reconditioned drum heights. Combination inserts combine a straight-sided design with a band of accordion pleats to accommodate both drum height variations and follower plate use. Vented inserts include four holes near the top to vent trapped air during a fill, allowing drums to be filled with the lid on.

Blow molding is the process used to manufacture inserts. Blow molding technology provides extra performance in maintaining package integrity and durability. With this technology, components are typically cylindrical, but square or rectangular shapes can be made.

In extrusion blow molding (EBM), plastic is melted and extruded into a hollow tube (a parison). This parison is then captured by closing it into a cooled metal mold. Air is then blown into the parison, inflating it into the shape of the hollow bottle, container or part. After the plastic has cooled sufficiently, the mold is opened and the part is ejected. EBM processes may be either continuous (constant extrusion of the parison) or intermittent.

Compared to injection molding, blow molding is a low-pressure process, with typical blow air pressures of 25-150 psi. This low-pressure process allows the production of economical low-force clamping stations, while parts can still be produced with textured surface finishes. The resulting low stresses in the molded parts also help make the containers resistant to strain and environmental stress cracking.

Although injection molding is probably the most popular form of plastics processing, it is not conducive to liner manufacturing. In order to form a part as tall as a drum, the walls would have to be much thicker than is needed in thermoforming or blow molding, which would increase the part cost. Thicker parts also mean longer cycle times, which also increases costs. Injection molds are also typically more expensive and generally require more taper than thermoforming molds, so the liner will not fit the drum as well. In addition, inherent stress points at the sprue and gate (injection points) may cause a fracture point and consequently a leak point.

Sustainable Solutions

Flexible packaging offers significant value and sustainability benefits to consumers, retailers and manufacturers by reducing waste, energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions. Flexible packaging is an excellent sustainable choice that satisfies the adhesives and sealants industry’s packaging challenges while providing a greener footprint.
