A desiccant is a hygroscopic material that serves to maintain a state of dryness. It is the opposite of a humectant which serves to promote moisture retention. Desiccants eliminate humidity from the air and create and sustain a moisture-free environment.

Moisture can create an environment that promotes the growth of bacteria and mold. Moisture can also cause rust and damage to electrical components. When shipping or storing products, moisture needs to be controlled to keep products unspoiled. Desiccants offer a very effective solution to control levels of moisture especially in containers and packaging.

Activated carbon (charcoal) has proven to be a very efficient tool for removing undesirable odors in confined areas. The surface area of activated carbon allows the media to effectively absorb organic compounds. The carbon will neutralize odors from pets, mold, human waste, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Oxygen can promote the growth of bacteria and fungi that can cause food to spoil. Consuming food with bacteria can be harmful. Oxygen Absorbers can prevent the growth of pathogens and extend the shelf life of food. Oxygen Absorbers are non-toxic and inexpensive compared to the cost associated with throwing out contaminated food.

All shippping containers are susceptible to moisture. The moisture content of the air during load as well as the temperature during transit both impact the moisture level in the shipping container. Moisture trapped in the container condenses to the cooler areas and as the temperature rises, condensation accumulates on the walls and ceiling.

Moisture can cause irreversible damage to your boat or RV. If there are high levels of moisture during storage, it can damage electronic components and possibly impact the performance of your vehicle. Moisture can also promote the growth of mold and mildew on surfaces and fabric. Products such as Delta Adsorbents Dry Kits contain all you need to prevent too much moisture.
