Times are changing and innovation is part of our everyday life. In recent years every stage of production and delivery of goods and commodities has been improved to cut losses and damages. However, when it comes to protecting against moisture damage, we are still stuck behind the times, relying on the same outdated methods that were used decades ago. Until today that is! The Hyblanket is a step towards more innovative and intelligent design. It focuses on maximizing rapid absorption to protect against “container rain”, which is when the risk of moisture damage is greatest and a problem that continues to cause millions of dollars in damages every year
What is an absorbent blanket?
Absorbent blankets are a type of desiccant solution that quickly absorbs container rain condensation to keep cargo clean and dry. The Hyblanket features a leak-proof design that protects food and non-edible goods from moisture damage throughout shipment transit.
What are absorbent blankets used for in shipping processes?
The Hyblanket water absorbing blanket is hung over the top of cargo in a shipping container. The high-end gel formula of absorbent blankets prevents moisture from moving downwards, meaning container rain can’t permeate cargo packaging. The breathable membrane also encourages cargo’s existing moisture to rise, where it becomes trapped above the blanket.
How does a water absorbing blanket prevent cargo damage?
The Hyblanket is only 5mm thick, but it can absorb up to 30 gallons/130 liters of moisture. Reducing the amount of moisture in the air during transit can prevent warping of packaging and caking of product during transportation.
Are absorbent blankets easy to install?
Hyblanket absorbent blankets now feature an advanced, click-on-top hanging system to make installation simply and straightforward. The water absorbing blanket can be clipped into place above the cargo within under 240 seconds.
