Thousands of tonnes of agricultural commodities in shipping containers are damaged during shipment. Temperature fluctuations, between different climates through which the cargo is passing, result in condensation. Poor air movement and saturated air inside the container release water and damage the cargo. This condition is ideal for the development of molds and the growth of insects.
In many countries fumigation is required before departure. The process cause delays and additional expenses. Often, the fumigation time is kept to a minimum, killing only adult insects. The insects’ eggs survive and later hatch during transport when the humidity and temperature in the container increase.
GrainPro’s TranSafeliner™ (TSL™) is an Ultra Hermetic™ solution that reduces condensation and insect and mold infestation in agricultural commodities transported in shipping containers. The GrainPro TranSafeliner™ is made from recyclable multi-layer PE with barrier layer that has an extremely low permeability to gases that protect the quality of commodities inside it during shipping.
The GrainPro TranSafeliner™ is designed to enclose commodities in a gastight environment where insects embedded within the commodities are deprived of oxygen and are eliminated once air is almost completely consumed. Because it is also watertight, the GrainPro TranSafeliner™ prevents the entrance of moisture and reduces condensation inside it, preventing the growth of aflatoxin-producing molds.
• Safe storage that preserves quality and minimizes losses of dry agricultural commodities. Reduces condensation by preventing the entrance of moisture from the outside.
• Effectively controls insect infestation, inhibits the growth of fungi during transit and prevents increase in commodity’s moisture content.
• A “green technology” that eliminates the need for synthetic chemical fumigants or large amounts of dessicants.
• Easy to install and can be used repeatedly if not punctured.
• No maintenance and operation costs required.
