Moisture Control in Custom Cases

Moisture Control Cases

Cases with moisture control can help you protect your delicate medical supplies.

Part of why you are purchasing a custom case is to protect the valuable or delicate products inside, so moisture control should be of the utmost importance to you. Obviously, you can never completely protect your medical devices from encountering moisture, as it is in the air around us, but you can do a great job at moisture control with a little bit of effort.

Use Drying Agents

Drying agents in your custom case can help greatly cut down on the amount of moisture present. If you place a desiccant (fancy word for drying agent) into the case itself, it will remove moisture from the air inside and keep it inside, preventing any condensation from lurking about. There are many different types of desiccants on the market today that can take up to 35% of their own weight in water, making them a great pick for humid environments. When using desiccants, it is important to remember that they do have a finite capacity for drawing in moisture. Once they are completely full and storing their maximum capacity of water, they won’t be able to fit anymore.

How Can You Choose the Right Desiccant for Your Custom Case?

Choosing the right desiccant and the right amount of it can be a bit of an art. Think about how large the inside of your custom case is and how much moisture you think that it will encounter. Are you traveling in a rainforest or a desert? While those are two extreme examples, checking things like the weather before you set off are important to determining how much drying agent to put into your case. Consulting with the experts at Packaging Strategies Incorporated is a great way to calculate the amount of drying agent needed when you don’t have the time (or money) for any trial and error.
