Product Shelf Life Control and Extension

Based on the extensive research conducted by FPS’s R&D, MAPGuard was designed to work with a variety of special liners in different industries. During the design phase and selection process of the liners, very strict testing was performed to determine MAPGuard’s specifications. It enables the protection and extension of the commercial value of food products with MAP food packaging technology.

MAP In Large Volume

MAPGuard brings the benefits of MAP Packaging technology to the world of Flexible Intermediate Bulk Packaging (up to 396 gallons / 1,500 litres in capacity), consequently offering cost savings to customers via economy of scale.

Best-In-Class MAP Speed Process

MAPGuard was designed to operate with a rapid gas and vacuum system, ultimately enabling customers to perform swift gas and/or vacuum functions, which rapidly modify MAPGuard’s internal atmosphere, resulting in reduced operating costs.

*The time advantage between MAPGuard and other gas and vacuum systems may vary depending on the product, the gas and vacuum protocol used and other variables.

**If required by the customer, the MAPGuard FIBC can operate with third-party gas and vacuum systems.


Reliable and Hazard-Free MAP Process

The MAPGuard system allows the user to perform internal FIBC gas and/or vacuum functions, in a simple, consistent and reliable manner. Even with a basic level of training, the operator can carry out the process, resulting in consistent, efficient and high-quality production results.

Safe and Easy-to-Use Test Point

  • The MAPGuard system allows users to measure FIBC’s internal atmospheric conditions while protecting the integrity of the liner via dedicated atmospheric test point, ultimately resulting in a reliable and easy-to-use test method and product shelf life control.
  • MAPGuard’s atmospheric test point allows users to monitor FIBC’s internal atmospheric conditions with industry standard equipment instead of costly, special equipment.
