Installation Guidelines

Nordic application.png

Nordic Dry products are completely safe for use for any cargo type.

Nordic Dry fights moisture and condensation by absorbing water vapor from the air and preventing the humidity level inside containers from reaching the dew point.

At Nordic Dry we take a hands-on approach to cargo protection. We routinely attend container loadings and un-loadings to recommend the correct application. It’s important to us that our high-quality products are also user-friendly and easy to install. We take great pride in being an active participant in your business.

Guidelines for Preparation and Installation 

  • Closely inspect the container interior. Pay particular attention to the condition of the floor and the door seals.

  • The container should have minimum residual moisture inside and needs to be able to be hermetically sealed for the voyage duration so that moist air cannot penetrate during the voyage.

  • The floor should be dry. Often the containers will be received having just been washed and residual water may be present If too damp reject. If available it is worth measuring the moisture content of the floor. Moisture level greater than 15% are too high and the container should be rejected.

  • Stand inside the container and close the doors. No light should penetrate through the door seals. Check the door seals for breaks and holes. If damaged then reject the container.

  • Seal the container vents using strong duct tape. 

  • Hang Nordic Dry on the ceiling hooks inside the container evenly.

  • Where possible, do not allow Nordic Dry to be in direct contact with the cargo. Nordic Dry bags can be placed on top of the goods but it is recommend to be placed on a protective sheet of plastic or cardboard.

  • Hang the bags in an even distribution on the container hooks

  • As a rule of thumb, 1kg of Nordic Dry per 4m3 of free air space, however the actual quantity of desiccant will depend upon cargo moisture content, voyage duration and amount of free airspace. 

  • Nordic Dry can provide necessary assessment and assist with trial operations.


We can provide more detailed information on how we can implement safe loading of the cargo to prevent humidity-related problem into your Standard Operational Procedure (SOP).
