Condensation Terminator Sheet

Condensation Terminator Sheet

The Condensation Terminator Sheet (CT Sheet) is used to keep cargos protected from moisture during transportation.

Cargo containers are highly prone to moisture and condensation, causing damage to the products during shipping. The Condensation Terminator Sheet is a hassle-free and simple solution to prevent condensation and measure moisture inside the container.  Condensation happens when water vapours present in the air of the container convert into a liquid state. They rise and condense on the container’s roof and walls and form small water droplets. With frequent occurrence of condensation, the water droplets gather to become dense. They eventually fall and drip on the surface of the contained products. Moisture causes deterioration, moulds and mildew formation, corrosion, and other types of damages. Without preventive measures, this situation can lead to significant losses.

Shipping Container Condensation

As the walls of the containers are made of metallic materials, they are great insulators of temperature, which results in the temperatures being influenced by the environment easily. As temperature changes frequently occur, condensation takes place when the walls of the container become cooler than the air. During condensation, water vapour turns into a liquid, rising and adheres to the surface of the walls and roof of the container. As the water droplets accumulate and become denser, they eventually drip off these surfaces and onto the cargo/goods. This results in damage occurring to goods such as corrosion, caking of powder, packaging deterioration, moulding, and more. Further damage to goods may also happen, resulting in more losses occurring.

Condensation Terminator Sheet

The Condensation Terminator Sheet is designed to allow only water vapour to pass through and act as a barrier to water droplets. It functions as a water-absorbing sheet to catch condensation droplets from the ceiling and walls of the container. It is made to ensure it is durable and firm to prevent sagging and water from leaking even if a large amount of water is absorbed.

USAGE

The CT Sheet is designed with a special hook. These hooks are to be hanged onto lashing rings and tied to lashing bars at each corner using ropes. The most inner side and the door side of the CT Sheet should be attached to the ceiling with adhesive tapes.

THINGS TO NOTE

  • There should be a 20cm gap between the CT Sheet and the top of the cargo
  • The cargo should not be touching the CT Sheet
  • Ensure that there is no oil or dirt on the surface of the cargo and CT Sheet
  • Ensure the tape areas of the container is dry so that CT Sheet remains intact
  • Lashing rings is needed for CT Sheet to be attached to roof corners

To summarise, the Condensation Terminator Sheet is an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution to prevent moisture damage in containers with only 5 minutes needed for installation and removal. CT Sheet does not need to be cleaned after each use and can be easily stored. Most importantly, it is highly applicable for many different products from steel to steel wires, machine parts, metal, cosmetic and beauty products, chemicals, detergent, medicine, food, and many more.
