Moisture damage

Factory direct supply | Distributors, wholesalers and dealers wanted.

During the transportation of the goods, the temperature inside the container will rise and fall between day and night, meanwhile the relative humidity inside the container will also fluctuate, eventually leading to two basic water vapor condensation: “container rain” and “cargo sweat”.

1. Container rain

When a container enters a low temperature area from a high temperature
area, its internal ambient temperature changes from high to low to reach the dew point. Water vapor will condense into water droplets and condense on the top and surrounding walls of the container, and eventually drip onto the cargo.

2. Cargo sweat

When the cargo is transported from a low temperature area to a high temperature area, or the cargo storage environment suddenly changes from cold to hot, water vapor in the air will condense into water on the surface of the cargo or on its packaging.
