Moisture reduction

Container desiccants reduce the humidity in the container and consequently reduce or eliminate the need for in-box protection. It is essentially the same concept as fixing a leaking roof rather than needing buckets to collect the dripping water.

Both products below are available for sale @Jans

Absorpole is to be installed vertically. It is activated by pulling out 
the inner grey container. After securing the collector with a pin 
from the back, Absorpole shall be hung from a container lashing 
ring with its integrated hook. Make sure to leave at least 25 mm / 
1’’ of space between the cargo and the desiccant. 
Absorpole starts to work immediately. The calcium chloride 
absorbs moisture from the air and dissolves it into a brine that 
will be trapped in the off-white collector. Once captured, the 
moisture will not re-evaporate back into the air.

AbsorGel® Blanket-X starts working as soon as it is removed from 
its transparent sealed packaging or when removed from a box 
master PE-bag. 
It is normally placed on top of the cargo or pallets. One of the 
benefits of the AbsorGel® Blanket-X is that it can be installed 
outside the container. The calcium chloride (of 94% purity) 
absorbs moisture from the surrounding air passing in through 
its permeable packaging (DuPont™ Tyvek®). The liquid Calcium 
Chloride turns into gel by the modified starch. 
AbsorGel® Blanket is equipped with adhesive pads to keep it 
securely in place.
