Plastic granules are typically stored in small casks (bag ware), large casks (octabins) or in silos.
The octabin is an octagonal container made of corrugated cardboard.
It is designed in a way that a binding quantity of 1 t can be packaged for most plastic granules.
Often, an octabin is additionally laid out with a thin plastic foil into which the granules are filled.
If the same material shall be supplied to multiple machines octabins are used on a central material station.
