Reliable desiccants for containers against moisture damage
During container transport, whether by sea or by goods train, massive temperature fluctuations occur. This can lead to considerable moisture formation inside the freight containers. Even when goods are stored in the container, condensation can occur due to the difference between day and night temperatures. Container desiccants are a reliable remedy against this. Specially produced hygroscopic (i.e. water-attracting) materials in secure packaging which is water-vapour-permeable are applied directly to the container cladding or to the cargo. Suspending the container desiccants on the available eyelets is fast and easy, or they can be glued onto the outer packaging of the goods.
What is the most effective desiccant for shipping containers?
- certified to DIN 55473; also meets the industrial requirements of MIL-D-3464E
- contains unfired clay
- dry clay absorbs humidity from ambient air
- absorbs 25-30% of its own weight in moisture (approx. 280ml of water vapour per kg)
- is used in order to dehumidify large rooms, e.g. storerooms
- consists of fired clay granulate and salt
- salt attracts humidity from ambient air, clay granulate absorbs it
- absorbs 60% of its own weight in moisture (approx. 600ml of water vapour per kg)
- modern high-performance desiccant for container transportation
- dehumidifier on salt-starch basis
- salt attracts air humidity and becomes liquid, moisture is then bound by starch (gel bond)
- absorbs over 200% of its own weight in water vapour (approx. 2015ml per kg)
Which container desiccant bag for which application?
The result of a precise needs analysis is decisive for selecting the desiccant suitable for container use. The more precisely the relevant general conditions of the application can be recorded, the more exactly the appropriate type, quantity needed and optimal placement of the desiccant can be determined in the container.
Correspondingly produced desiccants can be attached to the eyelets available in the container with the assistance of integrated hooks to ensure they are optimally placed for absorption of the internal humidity arising. Furthermore, the adhesive strips prepared on the sheathing material permit attachment to other points if required.
The desiccants are hooked into the eyelets directly beneath the container ceiling and act exactly where the risk of condensation is highest. In addition, placement of desiccant on the container ceiling permits trouble-free loading and unloading of the container.
Due to its small size, the desiccant can be distributed in almost any gap in the tightly packed container and can be optimally distributed. Using its adhesive strips, it can be attached to the packaged goods, stowage material or also to the container wall.
The container desiccant consists of a multi-layer film and a HDPE fleece (high-density polyethylene). It is especially suitable for cramped space or the absence of suspension devices (tie-down eyelets), e.g. in refrigerated containers. Thanks to the adhesive strip on the back, it can be flexibly attached to the goods or to the container wall.
