Container ‘Super’ Desiccant

 

For Container Desiccant very large quantities of silica gel (and even more activated clay desiccant) would be needed to protect a shipping container and its contents from high humidity (container rain).Container Desiccant

Calcium Chloride adsorbs 10 times more than silica gel and has been used as a desiccant in shipping containers for many years – BUT it has one big disadvantage:

Calcium chloride converts to liquid brine when it adsorbs moisture.  If a pack is damaged and then leaks it can cause serious damage to the goods it is supposed to protect.

Dri-Strip 1000 uses NEW technology.  There can be NO leakage because it IMMEDIATELY CHANGES TO A HARD GEL AS IT ADSORBS MOISTURE.  (Many other products convert to a hard gel – eventually – but there can be liquid in the pack for several days before they become solid).

6 Strips (1 carton) will protect a 20ft container for 6 weeks

12 strips (2 cartons) will protect a 40ft container for six weeks

This Super Desiccant is also available in 125g and 50g individual sachets.

R-Tech are the sole UK Distributor for these products.
