Shipping in containers is an economical and safe way of shipping most types of cargo. But putting cargo into an enclosed steel box also entails a constant risk of moisture damage for almost every kind of cargo on every voyage. When damage occurs it may result in substantial losses and costs. Very small differences in the cargo and voyage conditions can have a huge effect on the outcome.

Moisture Damage can be Prevented

All containers contain moisture from the time of loading. No container is completely airtight. Moisture will move in and out of the container during the voyage known as “Container Breathing”. The objective of a moisture protection program is to prevent the build-up of moisture in the air to levels where it causes damage. This is done by reducing the amount of the moisture entering the container and by using desiccants to remove moisture from the air.

Finding the right solution for reliable protection against moisture damage requires understanding the causes. All desiccants have different capabilities to absorb moisture. When choosing your desiccants it is important to know that different substances have different characteristics. For example, the product’s ability to absorb moisture in relation to its own weight, absorption rate at different levels of relative humidity and the risk for re-evaporation. Passing through several climatic zones with wide temperature and humidity fluctuations, rough treatment and long transport times all affect the outcome.

Container Desiccants

High absorption with or with-out impact resistant water collector

All our products are based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air. They are easy to use and designed to occupy minimal container space with full functionality.
