LIMITATIONS OF CURRENT DESICCANT PROTECTION 

Your cargo and its packaging, including container floors, pallets, cardboard and crates, contain moisture that is evaporated into the container during transport—adding moisture to what in most cases is already humid air. All existing pouch-type desiccants (silica gel, clay, and starch with calcium chloride) provide only limited protection due to their very basic and unsophisticated design.

Due to the pouch design, this desiccant is immediately over exposed and the protection for cargo quickly declines early in a voyage. The daily temperature fluctuations always cause a re-release (re-evaporation) of absorbed moisture back into the container.

At high levels of humidity, the pouch type desiccant also easily becomes over-saturated and usually leaks. The result: only marginally better moisture protection inside the container during even a short voyage.


When the desiccant is needed the most-at high humidity levels-the pouch type easily gets over-saturated and stops absorbing. Once they become over-saturated, leakage also usually occurs

Due to the design of the pouch-type desiccants, they always release absorbed moisture back into the container on a daily cycle

The solution: A new class of desiccant technology that absorbs and traps moisture to prevent re-release (re-evaporation) during the entire intermodal voyage.

NOTE: Pouch type desiccants, while not the correct solution for containerized shipping or moisture control in large open spaces, are effective when used inside packaging.
