Octabin – the packaging for free-flowing products.

Octabins are typically made to suit 1140 x 1140 pallets, but can be produced to suit all standard CP pallet sizes and in any other size required to suit your needs.

Tricor delivers a range of styles to suit all needs for packing chemicals, food, closures & PET pre-forms. In addition to the conventional Octabin designs like the rigid, irregular and the telescopic Octabin, Tricor also supplies the Quick Bin, a pre-assembled Octabin in which the bottom and the bag are already attached. Octabins are designed for shipping weights of up to 1200 kgs and are suitable for double stacking in the warehouse.

Typical Octabin users pack free flowing products like powders, granular and flaked products and small components e.g. plastic or metal closures and PET pre-forms. All Octabin styles are designed for home and export use.

Characteristic features of the regular rigid octabins:

  • This construction has eight (8) equal panels
  • During stacking the octabin sleeve will bear up to the total weight of the octabin that is stacked on top
  • If the octabin is not completely filled, problems can occur
  • The headroom will decrease the stacking strength of the octabin due to the fact that the octabin panels are not supported by the content

Our advice regarding the headroom:

  • Double wall maximum headroom: 10 cm.
  • Triple wall maximum headroom: 15 cm.

Characteristic features of the irregular rigid octabins:

The panel dimensions can differ:

  • 4 + 4 equal panels
  • 4 + 2 + 2 equal panels

Please take into account that after filling the long panels will bulge.

During stacking the octabin sleeve will bear up to the total weight of the octabin that is stacked on top.

If the octabin is not completely filled problems can occur.

The headroom will decrease the stacking strength of the octabin due to fact that the octabin panels are not supported by the content.

Our advice regarding the empty space:

  • Double wall maximum empty space: 10 cm
  • Triple wall maximum empty space: 15 cm

Characteristic features of the telescopic octabin construction:

  • Octabin design for packing different product densities
  • This construction consists of 2 combined sleeves
  • The telescopic sleeve is mounted on the main sleeve
  • The telescopic sleeve will slip downwards during stacking until the product level is reached
  • The product will bear the weight of the octabin stacked on top
  • No headroom: higher safety level

Octabins can be printed to your specific requirements, presenting a professional image.
