Bag Calculations

Round Container

 To determine circumference of the bag:

  1. Multiply the diameter of the container by 3.14. Divide that total by 2 to get the flat width you need for your bag. (Add 1 inch for a looser fit)
  2. Add 1/2 of the diameter to the height of the container. Add 5 inches to the total for overhang. This is the total length of the bag needed
  3. if tying bag, add 1/2 the diameter to the bag length in # 2

Rectangular Container

in parenthesis is a sample for a carton 14" Length x 12" Width x 21" Depth

  1. Bag width = L + W + 2 (28= 14 + 12 + 21)
  2. Bag length = Depth + 1/2 Shortest side + 5" (32=21 + 6 + 5)

The ideal bag is 28 x 32 x Gauge or 16 x 12 x 32 x Gauge
