Buffers USA promotes new dessicant product
Buffers USA said it has become the exclusive supplier of a new line of products aimed at preventing damage from a buildup of moisture in containerized shipments.
The products, based on technology developed by Swedish firm Absortech International AB, remove moisture from the air and trap it in built-in collectors.
According to John Hove, president of Jacksonville, Fla.-based Buffers USA, “Traditional pouch-type desiccants do not permanently remove moisture from inside a container but rather continually absorb moisture until they become oversaturated then release it back into the air. Eventually the pouches loose their absorbing ability and can actually leak water onto the cargo. This new technology incorporates built-in collectors that trap the moisture as it is absorbed, preventing its re-release.”
