Petroleum and Oil Industry- Sorbipak Container Desiccants For Preventing Spills, Leaks, Oxidation And Enhance Shelf Life

Various products from the Petroleum and Oil Industry are often sensitive to moisture changes, and thus need to be safely stored and transported to maintain their integrity, stability, and effectiveness. Cargo desiccant packs are used in the petroleum and oil industry during shipping to prevent corrosion and maintain the quality of the products as they are capable of absorbing over 300% of their weight in water/vapor and moisture inside the cargo container or shipping container and avoid container rain.

Sorbipak container desiccants are effective in providing a dry environment that prevents corrosion in pressure vessels, which are essential for storing and transporting liquids, gases, and other petroleum and oil products efficiently. By removing moisture from the air inside the vessels, desiccant packs help protect the metal surfaces from corrosion, thereby ensuring the safety of the sensitive products, preventing damage to the vessels/packaging, and reducing maintenance costs, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers.

Different types of desiccants, including Silica Gel, and molecular sieves, are used in oil and gas to remove water molecules from natural gas and to prevent hydrates from forming and contaminating critical downstream components.

Desiccant packs come in a variety of packaging options but are mainly shipped in enclosed poly bags, desiccant pouches, canisters, desiccant strips, and Tyvek barrier bags to cater to the customized packaging, and transportation requirements of various petroleum and oil products and in turn enhance their shelf life. Desiccant packs containing silica gel are available in a range of sizes which are used in oil bleaching and many other industrial applications.

Applications and uses of cargo desiccant packs in Petroleum and Oil industry

Presere product stability

Moisture can reduce the shelf life and quality of oil and oil products. By preventing the absorption of moisture by the products, Cargo Dry Pak helps to maintain optimal storage conditions and maintain the quality of products during long periods of storage and transportation. Desiccant packs remove moisture from the air within the cargo and shipping containers and help to preserve the quality of products being transported, reducing the risk of damage and ensuring that the products arrive at their final destination in good condition.

Preventing spills and leaks

Excess moisture levels during storage and transportation of petroleum and oil products can lead to rusting and corrosion of the pipes and storage components, thus in turn leading to spills and leaks. This can be avoided by maintaining optimum moisture and humidity levels inside the shipping containers and preventing the corrosion of the storage containers. Desiccant packs also help to keep the structural integrity of the packaging in place, which helps to reduce environmental risks during transportation.

Preventing oxidation and extending shelf life

Some petroleum and oil products oxidize in the presence of air and moisture. The use of dry packs helps to prevent oxidation, prolongs the shelf life of petroleum products, and preserves their chemical composition. Desiccant packs help protect metal surfaces inside pressure vessels from corrosion, ensuring the safety of workers and reducing maintenance costs.

Optimum transportation of lubricants and greases

Various petroleum and oil products and byproducts, such as lubricants and greases can absorb moisture, leading to reduced effectiveness and potential equipment damage. Desiccant packs help to prevent this by maintaining a dry environment. They are also the best moisture absorbing solution and are commonly used to protect gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other refined petroleum products during oceanic transport.

Reduced maintenance costs and equipment protection

Moisture can have a negative impact on equipment and machinery used in the petroleum and oil industry. By controlling the humidity levels, desiccant packs reduce the chance of equipment corrosion and reduce maintenance costs due to early wear and tear which is common in areas where there is excess moisture or humidity levels inside cargo and shipping containers. Desiccant container strips can also be placed inside containers containing sensitive equipment such as pumps, valves, and instruments to reduce the risk of corrosion and moisture damage.

Using high quality, sustainable, eco-friendly, and efficient desiccants from Desiccant Pak for various petroleum and oil industry products is essential to maintain their stability and effectiveness throughout transport, storage, usage, and shelf life.
