Absortech - Experts on Moisture Damage Prevention

Each year around 1.7 billion metric tons of goods are shipped around the world and a worth of $500 billion goods are damaged every year before reaching their end-destination, 10% of these are due to moisture damages. Did you know that those containers could be protected from moisture damages with as little as 60 USD?

At Absortech, they know. This company based in Falkenberg (Sweden) has been committed to be a world leader within moisture protection technology since 1996.

They were the first to use 100% calcium chloride desiccants with superior absorption capacity that outperforms other traditional technologies, as clay or silica gel. Calcium Chloride is an inorganic component, safe to use and non-toxic with a high-performance behaviour, absorbing up to 250% on field conditions. This rate makes calcium chloride a very cost-effective desiccant but also an ultimate solution to remove moisture from the air.

AbsorRangeTM:  desiccants for every moisture protection requirement    

Their desiccants are specifically designed for use in containers or so-called in-box, offering an extensive desiccant range that covers all moisture protection requirement. They have 3 in container desiccants: Absortech® Top, AbsorBag® and the most well-known Absorpole®. Those products remove moisture from the air and collect it in a liquid water trap, with no re-evaporation of the absorbed moisture. Its design allows to hang them from the lashing rings below the container ceiling, being very easy to install and uninstall, but also to fit into the container walls. Their construction is strong and durable for bidding the extreme conditions on the sea.

AbsorGel® is the name that receives the products where water absorbed is bound into a gel, so no liquid water is formed. AbsorGel® Hanging, AbsorGel® Max and Absorgel® Compact are also designed to hang from the lashing rings. Their different shapes and dimensions make them suitable for different ways to place the cargo inside the container. AbsorGel® Blanket is a different product specially designed to be placed on top of the cargo or pallets instead of hanging.
