Mining and Minerals

Mining and Minerals- Moisture Adsorbing Cargo Desiccants To Preserve Mining And Mineral Products Throughout Shelf Life And Storage

When it comes to handling mining and minerals you may be dealing with various sensitive products such as different raw materials, mineral sands, rare earth elements, metal products, industrial minerals, metal products, types of ores, and mineral concentrates.&

Cargo desiccant packs, such as those containing bentonite clay, are widely used in the mining and minerals industry during cargo or shipping to control moisture and humidity levels in the cargo or shipping containers, to help prevent moisture relaed damage to the products. Desiccants can absorb high amounts of moisture and maintain the quality of goods by preventing corrosion and spoilage, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers./p>

There are many common and useful types of desiccant materials that can be used for the mining and mineral industry, including silica gel, clay desiccants, activated alumina, activated carbon, molecular sieves, calcium chloride, etc. Though Silica gel is the most commonly known and used desiccant material, clay desiccants are popular for their cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness. Silica gel desiccants are also sustainable, and affordable options as they are a highly porous material and can be efficiently used for safeguard these products.

The type of desiccant material you choose for the storage and transportation of mineral and mining products, will help efficiently absorb large amounts of moisture and humidity from the surrounding air, up to 300% of their weight in moisture, keeping the surrounding air in the cargo dry and clean. They can also be reused multiple times by regenerating the material.

Applications of cargo desiccants in the mining and minerals industry

Eco-friendly and sustainable desiccant material

To store and transport various mining products and minerals across longer transit times, it is essential to choose a high quality desiccant material that can be reused multiple times, is regenerable, and is packaged using eco-friendly materials such as Tyvek packaging. This will help maintain the optimum transport and storage conditions for these sensitive products effectively in an affordable and sustainable manner.

Preserve powdered and granular materials

To store and transport various mining products and minerals across longer transit times, it is essential to choose a high quality desiccant material that can be reused multiple times, is regenerable, and is packaged using eco-friendly materials such as Tyvek packaging. This will help maintain the optimum transport and storage conditions for these sensitive products effectively in an affordable and sustainable manner.

Protect sensitive electronic equipment/components

A lot of mining and mineral products come in powder or granular forms. These materials can easily form clumps or become unusable if exposed to moisture. For example, some bulk minerals, such as powdered limestone or gypsum, can easily cake and form clumps when exposed to moisture, making them difficult to work with or use once they arrive at their destination. Sorbipak container desiccants prevent moisture build-ups and ensure that minerals arrive at their destination in a free-flow state, ready for processing or use.

Preventing the growth of mold and mildew

Many mining and mineral extraction processes may include the use of various electrical and electronic equipments and components. These components are highly susceptible to varying weather, moisture, and humidity levels, and thus need to be safeguarded well by using highly absorbent materials such as desiccants, as they help create a dry environment, protecting sensitive equipment from potential harm.

Non-toxic and inert nature of desiccants

Various mining products such as ores, minerals, gems, slates, metal products, and aggregates can become a breeding ground for microorganisms under excess moisture levels inside the cargo and shipping container for a long time. This leads to the growth of mold and mildew on the surface of the stored and packaged products, making them unfit for use. High-absorbing container desiccant strips can help absorb large amounts of moisture from surrounding air keeping it dry and clean.

Some mining and mineral procedures and activities involve the production of chemicals, such as sulfuric acid or fertilizers. Since desiccants are non-toxic and inert in nature they do not lead to alterations in the chemical composition of the stored industrial product, and are crucial in preventing moisture-related reactions and ensuring the stability of these chemical products during transportation.
