Container Dri II


Condensation buildup or otherwise known as “container rain” or “cargo sweat” within shipping and storage containers can cause serious damage to stored cargo. Such damage is caused by the fluctuating weather conditions that arise during intermodal transport. With the excessive moisture inside and outside these containers, the “container rain” creates an environment in which mold, mildew, corrosion, caking and other types of damage thrive, thus causing damage to agricultural products, bulk foods, machinery, wood and metal components. This can often translate into lost revenue and jeopardize credibility for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of almost any product.


In growing numbers, however, transporters are learning that one of the most effective weapons to protect shipments from “container rain” is the Container Dri® II line of cargo desiccants. Container Dri II is a new generation of packaging protection for the reduction of dew point and the control of condensation. Container Dri II has the ability to protect shipments from start to finish, through all temperature ranges and relative humidity variances.

The Container Dri II line of cargo desiccants is comprised of a calcium chloride desiccant in a Tyvek substrate, which can trap up to 150% of its weight in moisture. These cargo desiccant bags are designed to allow water vapor to easily enter through the flexible packaging film and into the interior or the bag where it is concentrated into a thick gel. Water vapor can pass into the bag, but the gel cannot leak or escape.


Container Dri II is completely safe, non-toxic, and may be disposed of with regular waste when the shipment reaches its final destination. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have determined that the films used to package Container Dri II desiccant meet the requirements of the FDA for contact with food and drugs.


The recommended usage for each Container Dri II configuration may vary depending on shipping conditions and the nature of the products being protected.

  • Container Dri II Plus – designed with a hook and strap system that can be hung inside containers, river barges and rail cars
