Protect your sensitive equipment.
Cargo that will be shipped or stored in moist environments requires added protection from corrosion. The saltwater on long ocean voyages is particularly damaging to equipment, even in ocean containers. Electronic equipment that will be shipped by ocean containers should always be packed in a moisture barrier bag, with desiccant. To resist corrosion, these vapor barrier bags are then sealed, and vacuumed, so that the air is removed, reducing the moisture even further. Humidity indicators can be included to ensure the receiver that moisture and corrosion have not intruded on the waterproof packing.
Vapor barrier packaging for moisture protection is defined by mil-spec MIL-STD-2073.
In addition, MEI offers a floating deck and cushion base crates for shipping protection.
Waterproof Packing of Equipment & Cargo
Moisture is a constant concern for crates for export, cargo shipping or storage because condensation may develop in the hold of a ship even if it is equipped with air conditioning and a dehumidifier. Any stored or shipped cargo may also be unloaded in precipitation, or the foreign port may not have covered storage facilities.
