Don't Sweat It!

A precautionary measure to protect against cargo loss due to moisture damage during shipping

Discontinued-See Cargo Dry Desiccants

Humidity is a term used to describe the amount of water vapor present in air. Water vapor, the gaseous state of water, is generally invisible to the human eye and if left untreated, it can be very destructive to items such as electronics, spices or flour, automobile interiors and marine cabins.

Too low humidity may make materials brittle and too much can make materials soggy or damp. A particular danger to delicate items or fabrics regardless of the operating humidity range is condensation. Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from gas phase into liquid phase and occurs when a sealed item or area are subjected to fluctuations in extreme temperatures.

When an item is transported from a cold place (e.g. garage, car, shed, shipping carton) to a warmer place, condensation or the "the sweats" may develop and coat surface areas that could lead to:

  • Short circuits in electronics
  • The growth of mold or mildew
  • Corrosion and rust on metals
  • Spoiled food items
  • Peeling and warping
  • Deteriorated packaging
  • Clumped or caked powders
  • Chemical degradation

Desiccants are Easy, Effective & Inexpensive!TranSorb® Humidity Absorber Packs

To offset moisture related damages and prolong product quality, many factories and businesses are now incorporating desiccant packs inside their finished products and packaging. A desiccant is a vessel made of a solid, moisture absorbing substance that induces or sustains a state of dryness in any enviroment inside its sealed vicinity.

Made with different packaging and formulations, desiccants are commonly made of silica gel and  encountered in the pharmaceutical, electronics, food and manufacturing industries as a way to prolong, preserve and protect items during shipping and while in storage. 

Resembling a sugar or salt packet, these “Do Not Eat” pouches are commonly found inside pre-packaged shoe/sneaker boxes, pill bottles, electronics and food products designed to reulate moisture as goods pass along the supply chain. Desiccants are also used to reduce bacteria and pathogens that thrive in wet surfaces pressure but not all desiccants are created equally. Some are weak and many leak, but we have a solution for you! 

Made in the USA! Transorb® High-Humidity Absorber Packs Stop "Cargo Rain" to Keep Sealed Areas Dry and Products Fresh.

Keep food items fresh, shoes and clothes dry and fabric clean with these commercial grade moisture absorbers designed for use within shipping containers and secondary packaging to protect products against “cargo rain” or condensation.

Patented and non-leaching, TranSorb® Humidity Absorber Packs only activate in the presence of airborne moisture to lower dew points and maintain ideal relative humidity for 60+ days (depending on humidity). It slowly captures and converts 1-1/2 lbs of airborne moisture into non-toxic, non-caustic dry crystals and automatically shuts “off” and turns "on" reaminaing in a dry condition when desiccant has reached full capacity.

Preserve, prolong and protect! Use Transorb® for the shipping and storing of cargo such such as clothes, spices, flour, coca, coffee, nuts, rice, grains, sugar, canned goods, fire arms, metal parts/cans, equipment, tools, lumber, steel pails and more! Place and space these pouches around shipping containers, throughout sheds, freight carriers or place inside cartons and bags - one 196 gram bag treats 36 cubic feet area (3’ x 4’ x 3’).  One 32-count master carton treats a 20 foot shipping container or trailer.
