How the Absorpole works
Absorpole is activated once it is pulled out of its container. The calcium chloride, at the top portion of the pole (1), immediately starts to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. The desiccant material gradually dissolves into brine which is captured in the lower blue collector (2). Once captured, the moisture will not re-evaporate into the air.
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.

Generally, 4 â€“ 8 poles are required for 20-foot containers and 6 â€“12 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.
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.
