Condensation is a major problem when shipping products in containers since it may cause container rain which can result in damaging products. The main reason behind that is moisture levels and a huge difference in temperatures during the day and night. So, it is important to use the right techniques to stop this condensation, and these techniques include using container desiccant and other products that we will discuss here.
Here is everything you need to know to stop condensation in shipping containers.
Container desiccants come in a variety of materials, like silica gel and calcium chloride. While their material may be different, they will have the same goal of stopping condensation. This method works by absorbing excessive moisture inside the container, and when the temperature changes, it does not result in condensation. Hence, the products inside the container stay safe.
Some containers do not go in extremely humid places like in the ocean. For those containers, it is important to have proper ventilation. It is because when moisture is abundant inside the container, and you have good ventilation, the passage and age of air will ensure that condensation never takes place inside the container.
Drastic temperature change is the main cause of condensation in enclosed containers. So, if we protect against this temperature change, we can prevent condensation as well. Applying insulating layers will ensure that the temperature is not that drastic and that will result in preventing condensation.
When packing things in the container, you need to install a vapor barrier in case you require an air-tight seal. These materials prevent the passage of vapors and prevent condensation from happening. However, this method is not as easy as it sounds since it requires a proper procedure and equipment when initially placing stuff in the container.
A dehumidifier is a product that takes excessive humidity in the air and creates dryness while condensing the vapors manually. This prevents container rain since there isn't enough humidity inside the container itself to cause condensation. It is a good choice for containers that are not in transit for very long periods.
Lastly, you must ensure that proper packing standards are being followed when packing things inside the container. The most common practice is ensuring that no wet or moist products are directly placed in the container. This way, the chances of increasing humidity in the container will decrease, resulting in safer transit.
