Container Dri II contains an original composition of calcium chloride largely used as industrial and domestic desiccants. It is an absorbent bag that absorbs moisture vapor. The humidity is fixed on the calcium chloride and remains trapped inside the bag. The adsorption capacity of each bag will be a minimum of 280% of water vapor at 90% RH and 25oC.
Container Dri Bags are placed in between packages of cargo as they are being loaded into a container prior to shipment, and removed upon arrival. During the transport, the bags absorb condensation from the container before it can saturate the packaging.
