Description

Absorpole Container Desiccant

Absorpole Container Desiccant is easy to use and designed for shipping containers to hang within a corrugation recess of the container side panel. Minimal space is occupied and accidental damage from forklifts during stuffing and un-stuffing is avoided due to its design and rigid casing. Absorpole is based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air and can absorb 150% of its weight in moisture.

 

How Absorpole works

Absorpole Container Desiccant is activated once it is pulled out of its container. The calcium chloride, at the top of the pole, immediately starts to absorb moisture from the surrounding air.

The desiccant material gradually dissolves into brine which is captured in a collector. Once captured, the moisture will not re-evaporate into the air.

 

Performance

The absorption characteristics of calcium chloride provide Absorpole with a superior absorption capacity, even at low humidity levels, and the ability to effectively protect cargo throughout the entire voyage.
