Absorpole is based on the proven ability of calcium chloride to aggressively remove moisture from the air.
Absorpole is easy to use and is designed to hang within the corrugated recess of the container wall. Its flush fitting means minimal space is occupied and accidental damage from forklifts during stuffing and un-stuffing is avoided.
How Absorpole works Absorpole is activated once it is pulled out of its container. The calcium chloride, at the top of the pole, immediately starts to absorb moisture from the surrounding air.
The desiccant material gradually dissolves into brine which is captured in a collector. Once captured, the moisture will not re-evaporate into the air.
Performance The absorption characteristics of calcium chloride provide Absorpole with a superior absorption capacity, even at low humidity levels, and the ability to effectively protect cargo throughout the entire voyage.

Units needed Generally, 4 – 6 poles are required for 20-foot containers and 6 – 8 poles for 40-foot containers. The number may vary depending on the length of the voyage, the range of temperatures encountered and the type of cargo protected.
Disposal Absorpole is made only of PE/PP plastics and salt, which are non-toxic and recyclable. Absorpole is a one-time product and can be disposed with regular waste.
