Condensation is an issue for any shipping container. Whether they are new shipping containers or used containers, the constant change in temperature means condensation build up is likely. To prevent this we have a number of condensation treatments for exporters we offer to give you that piece of mind that your cargo will be kept dry through transit or while in storage.
One of our most popular products for short term condensation prevention are shipping container moisture traps. These are moisture absorbing sticks that are used in shipping container units and are a simple and effective method of protecting your possessions. Moisture traps are very easy to use and designed to be attached to the container wall (so to keep out the way of your cargo). Once opened they start working immediately and will continue to absorb any moisture from the air for approx 12 weeks.
We recently supplied AGA Rangemaster with a test run of 12x moisture traps for their 40ft shipping container. Richard from AGA called in as he wanted to ship valuable kitchen and catering equipment from their head office in Leamington Spa over to Australia and had concerns with condensation damaging the cargo. One of our team talked Richard through the options and they both agreed that the moisture traps were the ideal solution. He then purchased the items and placed them into his shipping container ready for shipping.
Below are the pictures taken of the Absorpole moisture traps once they arrived in Australia, the cargo was kept completely dry and the pictures show just how much moisture was collected over the months voyage from the UK. Moreover these Absorpoles’ are remarkably easy to use. Just open the pack and they start working immediately and last for up to 12 weeks (or until full) they come with an easy hook to let you hang them from the lashing points on the top rail of the shipping container.
Thanks to Richard and the team from AGA Rangemaster for your custom and the pictures. AGA have since put in two more orders of 12 units for shipments leaving month by month!
