CONTAINER DRI® II

Eliminate Container Rain with Container Desiccants

Edition Date :
July 06, 2017

Clariant's Container Dri® portfolio offers a broad line of container desiccants that offer versatile protection against damaging humidity and moisture during intermodal transport. Available in bags, poles and strips, these industry-leading products absorb up to three times their weight in moisture, and trap it as a thick gel that will not spill or drip.

Preventing “Container Rain”

A unique feature of Container Dri II desiccants, also referred to as moisture absorbing bags, or dry bags, is dew point control. Dew point is the temperature at which condensation starts to form on surfaces, such as container walls and roofs. By aggressively removing moisture from ambient air, Container Dri II products lower the dew point to prevent “container rain”, “container sweat”, or also known as “cargo sweat”, from damaging goods in transit.

This system is highly effective in preventing the conditions that may cause mildew, warpage, corrosion, caking and other damage to agricultural products, bulk foods, powders, wood products, glass, furniture, automobile parts, leather goods, beans such as cocoa bean, and coffee bean, machinery and metal components. Container Dri II cargo desiccants can help manufacturers, shippers, distributors and other stakeholders protect brand equity, maintain their reputation for quality and safeguard revenues.

Usage Scenarios


The Container Dri II line of container desiccants are particularly valuable when:

- there is a large volume of air requiring moisture removal
- high levels of humidity are present due to climate, cargo or storage conditions
- the container admits exterior air and humidity

Food Shipments


Container Dri II has already enjoyed success protecting cocoa bean shipments from moisture damage by providing the highest moisture absorption of any calcium chloride–based product, easily addressing the 65 percent or higher loading of calcium chloride recommended in the Federation of Cocoa Commerce Ltd. (FCC) guidelines for shipment of cocoa beans in containers. Read the full release here: Clariant Container Dri® II Desiccants Meet New FCC Guidelines for Cocoa Bean Shipments
