Moisture Control – Absorpole

Absorpole is based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air. It is designed to stop moisture damage and condensation damage in shipping containers or storage containers.  It is easy to use and is designed to hang within the corrugated recess of the container wall. Its flush fitting means minimal space is occupied and accidental damage from forklifts during stuffing and un-stuffing is avoided.

How Absorpole works Absorpole 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, or for several months when used in static containers.
