Type B is similar to Type A in that they are both made from plain polypropylene and/or non-conductive materials, and do not have any mechanism for dissipating static electricity.
The difference is that Type B FIBCs are made from materials that have a low breakdown voltage of up to 6kV, because of this low breakdown voltage, Type B prevents sparks and propagating brush discharges. Type B should NOT be used in environments containing flammable solvents or gases.
Procon Pacific is now able to offer Type B FIBC with liner, meeting all requirements set forth in IEC Revision: IEC 61340-4-4 Edition 2 2012-1.
