Shipping Container Desiccants are moisture-absorbing bags to protect cargo from moisture damage by preventing condensation in shipping containers (typically known as Cargo Sweat, Container Sweat, or Container Rain). A moist environment may invite mould, mildew, and corrosion, which may cause product damage.
Using shipping container desiccants to absorb water vapour from the enclosed air in the container maintains a low relative humidity level. It keeps goods protected while in transit, preventing container rain. They help eliminate the harmful effects of moisture damage, such as mould and mildew, by reducing the dew point, the temperature at which condensation starts to form. Shipping Container desiccants can also absorb moisture up to 280% of their dry weight, unlike other desiccants such as Silica Gel and Activated Clay, which only have an absorption rate of 25-30%. Moreover, its Tyvek leak-proof packaging materials allow water vapour to be absorbed and transformed into a thick gel-like structure, eliminating the potential for liquid spillage.
Container Desiccants are available in a broad range, offering versatile protection against moisture and humidity damage during transit. They are available in bags containing non-toxic clay desiccant and a small quantity of calcium chloride. They can absorb water vapours up to 80%. They are ideal for transporting goods like coffee beans, canned foods, flour, rice, and many more. Bulk purchases and customisation are available.
