Solve Container Sweat Issues with WiseCargo!
The WiseCargo® Container Desiccant series comes in 5 distinct sizes all equipped to handle the long travel times and ever changing temperature and humidity of a seafaring shipping container voyage. What is “Container Sweat” you may ask? Container sweat also commonly referred to by other terms such as “Container Rain”, “Cargo Sweat” or “Material Condensation” is similar to a glass of water filled with ice on a hot day but on a larger scale. In other words, shipping containers are filled at a dock close to the ocean, this moisture is then trapped inside each shipping container; clinging to the walls and ceiling especially. As temperatures rise and fall during the voyage and as day turns to night this condensation on the walls and ceilings starts to “rain” on the goods inside and damages them significantly with mold and severe water damage like warping and corrosion. Thanks to Wisecargo’s design, you can avoid these issues and keep your materials safe and moisture free.
How does it work?
Every size of the WiseCargo Container Desiccant brand utilizes Calcium Chloride, a chemical adsorbent. This chemical adsorbent absorbs moisture at a much higher rate when compared to traditional physical adsorbents like silica gel, when extreme temperatures and humidity are reached (starting at 38C and an RH of 90% you can see humidty absorption rates of over 270%!). Furthermore, this state of super absorption is supported by Tyvek packaging material (2B) allowing for more moisture to be stored and a dual bag design, ensuring no moisture or water leaks out of the desiccant’s packaging. Thus, any situation or trade route will be fully protected and container rain might as well be a thing of the past. Over 10% of container shipped goods are discarded due to damage from moisture and countless others arrive with damage on arrival and shipped to the customer in a suboptimal state. Using Wisecargo you won’t become a part of this statistic, and can ensure your products are safe!
