Reconditioning / valeting of bulk bags
Centurion Packaging also undertake bulk bag Valeting or reconditioning at Golborne to allow expensive bulk bags to be re-used instead of replaced.
It is estimated that many bags can be reused up to 4 or 5 times.
Reconditioning or valeting bags is carried out where the same product is moved around; often inter-group and vast savings can be made by the user.
Market areas where reconditioning can be beneficial
- (some) Foodstuffs
- Detergents and soap based products
The Valeting operation principle is simple
- Segregation on receipt
- Examination for damage
- Optional refurbishing service
- Complete cleaning service
- Re-tie and repair filling spouts and discharge spouts
- Repacking the bags
- Return to customer
When the life of the bag reaches its final trip, we will have it recycled into granules for re-use into basic plastic products.
