Commodities transported in bulk and loaded into shipping containers are in wide use for moving dried agricultural commodities around the world. Transporting in bulk makes full use of the shipping container’s total volume, filling it to the maximum.
Shipping containers, are often contaminated with residues from previous loads or from cleaning agents used on the container. Exporters can now use the TSL Bulk™ to prevent contact between the commodity and the container’s walls and floor.
The TranSafeLiner Bulk™ (TSL Bulk™) is a patented Ultra Hermetic™ liner specifically designed for the easy loading of bulk dry agricultural commodities. Made from recyclable multi-layer PE with barrier layer, commodities such as coffee and cocoa can be loaded with ease into the TSL Bulk™ using belt conveyors or blowers.
The TSL Bulk™ is installed with tapes and hooks. Two people can install it in less than an hour. A bulkhead that comes with the TSL Bulk™ is placed at the door to prevent bulging while the doors are open. A pneumatic loader (blower) or conveyor is inserted through an opening in the liner at the container’s door. Once loading is complete, the TSL Bulk™ is sealed with the hermetic zipper.
The TSL Bulk™ is designed to enclose commodities in a gastight environment where insects embedded within the commodities are deprived of oxygen and are eliminated once air is almost completely consumed. Because it is also watertight and vapor tight, the TSL Bulk™ prevents the entrance of moisture and reduces condensation inside it, preventing the growth of aflatoxin-producing molds.
