Dehumidification during storage, dispatch and transport
Professional dehumidification concept protects goods
End-to-end dehumidification concept from raw materials warehouse to transport
In the silo as well as during transport hygroscopic bulk material is endangered by humidity – this holds true for both the chemical and the pharmaceutical industry. Humidity continues to be a problem after production, because the products are mostly packed into damageable cardboard boxes with paper inserts. Therefore, dehumidification also plays a key role for storage, dispatch and transport.
Medicine, dragées or powders – humidity already poses a risk to chemical and pharmaceutical products when in the raw materials warehouse or silo: If moisture enters the goods can go lumpy, become caked or spoiled. Even when produced and stored properly in a dry space, the next moisture issue is imminent in the packaging. It mostly consists of cardboard boxes soaking already at a relative humidity value of 55 per cent. Including labels. In the worst case scenario the packaging absorbs water in the manufacturer's warehouse or during transport – long before it arrives in the pharmacy or drugstore.
An end-to-end dehumidification system is imperative to be able to deliver the packages in impeccable dry condition, which also includes the staging area and transport. We at Trotec develop a master plan for the dehumidification using adsorption dryers.
