DELMAS DESIGNS MOISTURE SYSTEM FOR CONTAINERS
The French shipping and forwarding group Delmas has introduced a system to protect containerized shipments of tropical products from moisture damage.
The “DELMAS Anti Condensation System” was specifically designed to transport cocoa beans packed in bags or as bulk in a dry container, as a reliable alternative to the use of ventilated containers, the company said.
The system consists of a recyclable polyethylene sheet suspended beneath the ceiling of the container and designed to let the air flow past both sides. The moist air emanating from the cargo turns into water, which is then collected within reservoirs.
Delmas, a major operator in the African trades, said that the system is very easy to install and remove with 20-foot and 40-foot dry freight containers.
