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.
HUMIABSORBENT help you to protect your valuable cargo from humidity damage by adsorbing, reducing the humidity, and then create dry environment inside cargo container. HUMIABSORBENTis natural absorbent with gelling agent, obtained SGS testing certification, thus the product is effective, safe and friendly environment.
 
HUMIABSORBENT 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.

 

What is Humiabsorbent dessicant?

A desiccant is a hygroscopic substance that induces or sustains a state of dryness in it local vicinity in a moderately well sealed container or packing box. Humiabsorbent is calcium chloride desiccant which is very aggressively absorb moisture from the air,   reducing the humidity in cargo container and create dry environment in cargo container. Humiabsorbent is natural absorbent with gelling agent, thus the product is safe and friendly environment.
 

What types of desiccant?

Silica gel, calcium sulfate, calcium chloride, montmorillonite clay, and molecular sieves are commonly used as desiccant. Among of the above desiccant types, Calcium chloride is quite effective in absorbing moisture. It has a natural antibiotic and anti fungal effect, and not harmful to human when consumed in moderate quantities. Clay is also popular base material for packed desiccant. It is effective in absorbing moisture and quite low cost production. The weakness of clay as desiccant is that clay to absorb moisture but it will release the moisture once it gets its saturation level or when it been heated. Silica gel also has the same feature with clay, there fore both silica gel and clay can be recycled by thermally induced drying.
 

How does Humiabsorbent desiccant work?

Humiabsorbent 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. Humiabsorbent 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.
 

What are the most common problems caused by moisture or humidity?

Moisture or humidity in container cause problem such as mold, fungus, mildew, rust decay, lumping, caking, decomposition, and malfunction in electronic.
 

Can I reuse the Humiabsorbent desiccant?

Humiabsorbent 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 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 of Humiabsorbent desiccant
Open the packaging bag and hang the Humiabsorbent 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 Humiabsorbent 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…

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.

6. Storage
Store the remaining desiccant in a dry condition and insure no leakage, with desiccant packaging bag wrap tightly.
