Condensation inside a shipping container occurs when the temperature inside drops below to dew point. The dew point is the temperature when the airborne water vapor will condense to form liquid water. When condensation forms on the interior of the container, the contents get wet and might be damaged. However, this doesn’t mean all is lost, or there is no way to stop condensation in the shipping container. These are some things to learn about shipping container care.

Use a Dehumidifier in Your Shipping Container

Allstates Containers shipping container careA dehumidifier is a simple and affordable way to get rid of condensation inside a shipping container. The dehumidifier removes water from the air inside the container and collects it. The best ones detect the level of humidity automatically and trigger the dehumidifier to start. With this, you stop dangerous bacteria or mold from forming inside the container and prevents damage to the shipping container as well.

Container Insulation

Insulating a shipping container keeps the inside temperature warmer above the dew point, preventing condensation from forming. Insulation is not electricity-dependent, and it lasts a long time once installed. All you need are the right materials depending on the climate of where the container is located.

Container Ventilation

Ventilation is a cost-effective way to prevent condensation. Ample air circulating in the container prevents condensation. With aeration, you equalize the temperature on the inside and outside of your shipping container. The solution might not be ideal for cold climates but works like a charm in many places. We offer customized containers equipped with fans and vents.

Using Desiccants

Desiccants are used to help absorb moisture from the air inside the container reducing condensation. The desiccants can be placed in bags on the floor, on the wall, or as paint on the walls and roof interior of the shipping container.

Use Cat Litter to Absorb Moisture

Using cat litter might sound like a joke, but it’s an effective and cheap method. The cat litter absorbs excess moisture inside the shipping container reducing condensation.

With condensation, you have to stop it before it occurs. Condensation inside the shipping container is a disaster. It damages the items inside the container as well as the container itself. If you want the container to last long, learn how to control condensation as part of your shipping container care schedule.
