Every year thousands of containers shipped by sea are damaged by humidity or moisture problems. When the container arrives in the destination the cargo found to be mold, corrosion, rust, fungus, mildew, and deterioration. It is mainly caused by humidity, cargo sweat and container rain. This problem costs manufacturers, freight forwarders, shipping lines, trading companies, importers, and customers several million dollars.
Humidryers help you to protect your valuable cargo from humidity damage by adsorbing, reducing the humidity, and then create dry environment inside cargo container. Humidryers is natural absorbent with gelling agent,obtained SGS testing certification, thus the product is effective, safe and friendly environment.
Humidryers protect the following commodities :
- Agricultural Product : coffee, tea, tobacco, nuts, cocoa, ginger, pepper, flour, rice, seed, etc.
- Wooden Products : furniture, timber, etc.
- Electrical Products : cable, appliances, toys, etc.
- Leather Products : footwear, bags, etc.
- Metal Products : sheets, coils, spare part, machinery, furniture, etc
- Textiles Products : garments, fabric, etc.
Humidryers desiccant protect product through process which called as adsorption. Where one substance is chemically integrated into another, during adsorption, moisture is held inside a desiccant by physical bonds and no chemical changes. Humidryers desiccant adsorb this moisture quickly and thoroughly, preventing condensation during transport and storage. The desiccant then starts into a gel as it is continues to absorb moisture.
Quantity or unit Humidryers desiccant needs depend on the cargo temperature condition during the voyage, the length of voyage, and the type of product shipped. For some really dry cargo e.g. steel coil, spare part, house holds, textile needs 6 - 8 units of Humidryers for 20 ft and 8 – 10 units for 40 ft. For most of normal cargo needs 8 - 10 units for 20 ft and 10 – 12 units for 40 ft. For some cargo which very difficult of moisture properties on long voyage e.g. furniture, agriculture product needs 10 -12 units for 20 ft and 12 – 14 units for 40 ft.
Humidryers desiccant is one time useable, friendly environmental, and disposable as normal waste.
How To Use
1. Container inspection
Check the container condition, whether there is a hole or crack on the top, side and bottom wall of container.
Container door and seal must be on good condition and can be closed tightly. Also the container must be in dry and clean condition.
Please check the humidity of wood floor if the container use wood floor, and insure the humidity is no more than 20% as it would increase the risk of damp or you need to increase the dosage of desiccant.
2. Seal air ventilation on the container wall
Desiccant is effective in a close environment. If the container door is not closed tightly, there is leakage on container, or air ventilation is not closed properly, desiccant will not able to absorb the moisture which continually enter from outside. There fore please insure container in a close condition.
3. Inspect the packaging bag condition
Check the packaging bag condition to insure no leakage or damage during transportation. Do not use the leakage or damage product as it has possibility been exposed to moisture.
4. Installation Humidryers desiccant
Open the packaging bag and hang the Humidryers desiccant to the iron hoop of the container wall. The quantity for some really dry cargo e.g. steel coil, spare part, house holds, textile needs 6 - 8 units of Humidryers for 20 ft and 8 – 10 unit for 40 ft. For most of normal cargo needs 8 - 10 units for 20 ft and 10 – 12 units for 40 ft. For some cargo which is very difficult of moisture properties on long voyage, e.g. furniture, agriculture products needs 10 - 12 units for 20 ft and 12 – 14 units for 40 ft. Put two unit Humidryers desiccant in the space close to the container doors.
5. Load the goods to container and close container’s door tightly
Stack the products neatly and please make sure not cover the surface of the desiccant container.
Store the remaining desiccant in a dry condition and insure no leakage, with desiccant packaging bag wrap tightly.
Humidryers desiccant use the mixture of CaCl2, high water absorption material, and gelling agent.
This special mixture material turns into solid gel after full humidity absorption, therefore no any leakage even it gets saturated.
Humidryers absorb up to 2 times of its own weight
