absorpole close


The Absorpole® container desiccant is a patented product, based on the proven results of calcium chlorides outstanding ability to absorb moisture from the air. The pole is easy to hang in containers and fits flush in the recess of the container wall, resulting in minimal loss of space within the container. By hanging in the recess, the poles are protected during loading and unloading of the container.

  • Easy to install and remove
  • High absorbance so less poles required
  • No loss of load space
  • Environmental friendly, contains no toxic materials
  • First carbon neutral desiccant in the market
  • Recyclable and made from recycled plastic
  • Suitable for long shipments
  • Robust design
  • Cost effective
  • No re-evaporation of absorbed moisture

Although the Absorpole was designed as a shipping container desiccant, it can be used in any instance for removing moisture from the air. For example, storage units, sheds, lockups, caravans, motor homes and static caravans. With an absorption rate 10 times great than silica gel, they are highly cost effective too.

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.

Can be used for any type of cargo, such as:

  • Capital products
  • Textiles and leather
  • Wood and paper products
  • Plastics, glass and metals
  • Electronics and machinery
  • Automotive parts
  • Food and Drink


To activate the Absorpole® you simply pull it out of its container and hang in the container. The calcium chloride at the top of the pole immediately starts to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. The desiccant material gradually dissolves into brine which is captured in a collector. Once captured, the moisture will not re-evaporate into the air.

Generally, 4 – 6 poles are required for 20-foot containers and 6 – 8 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 using recycled plastics and salt, which are non-toxic and recyclable. Absorpole is a one-time product and can be disposed with regular waste.
