Transafeliner G-HF™ Is More Effective Against Infestation And Condensation In Shipping Containers

GrainPro, Inc. is launching the TranSafeLiner Gas-Hermetic Fumigation™, an Ultra Hermetic solution with organic fumigation features that acts as a liner for shipping containers and is very effective against infestation and condensation.
CONCORD, Mass. - Oct. 16, 2014 - PRLog -- GrainPro, Inc., the worldwide leader in post-harvest solutions and a pioneer in Ultra Hermetic™ storage, is set to launch the TranSafeLiner Gas-Hermetic Fumigation(TSL G-HF™) online on 24 October 2014 through its website, blog and social media.

For years, GrainPro’s patented TranSafeLiner™ (TSL™) has been the industry standard liner for shipping containers containing dried agricultural commodities. It is a sufficient solution against insect damage, moisture and humidity during shipment. For better protection, GrainPro developed the TSL G-HF to more effectively address infestation and the build-up of condensation during the journey of shipping containers.

Made from Ultra Hermetic multi layered film, the TSL G-HF has the same loading capacity as a 20’ container. It has superior gas and moisture barrier properties to effectively isolate the commodity from ambient air with its varying moisture content. The commodity is protected against air and moisture permeation, thereby, minimizing condensation.

Furthermore, carbon dioxide (CO₂) can be injected using an expansion pipe with an integrated, end-to-end air duct at the top of the liner allowing oxygen to escape when the liner is flushed with gas before departure. This type of fumigation is environmentally acceptable and safe due to the inert characteristics of CO₂ and the gas tightness of the liner inside the container. The TSL G-HF quickly stops mold development and infestation, eliminating both live adult insects and their eggs.

Infestation is a common problem during shipment. Before leaving port, it has been common practice to fumigate shipping containers for a couple of days. Unfortunately, this only kills adult insects. While in transit, eggs hatch once the condition inside the container becomes favorable. This process is very costly and inefficient.

The TSL G-HF is an organic solution that continuously stops infestation during transit, while reducing the effects of condensation. It minimizes costs associated with chemical fumigation and prevents the rejection of the shipped commodities at the destination.

“We are constantly developing a full-range of solutions to help international exporters, traders and farmers of all sizes gain an edge in preserving and protecting their products,” says GrainPro President Phil Villers. “By continuously improving our solutions and applying organic methods, we help secure an abundant supply of safely dried agricultural commodities for global consumption.”

Two other solutions from GrainPro are set to launch this month. The patented Cocoon Cargo™ is designed for the fumigation of commodities in flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC) at the point of departure or arrival.  Meanwhile, the patented SuperGrainbag Farm™ (SGB Farm™) is a low-cost Ultra Hermetic bag liner for farm commodities such as maize, cassava and rice paddy. Last September, GrainPro formally introduced the Solar Bubble Dryer™ (SBD™), which provides farmers with an efficient and state-of-the-art way to dry their harvested crops and protect them from sudden rains.

GrainPro has an International Organic Standards (IOS) certification from Certech and is recognized all over the world for its hermetic storage and drying innovations. GrainPro’s patented Cocoon™, TranSafeLiner™ and SuperGrainbag™ are currently used in more than 100 countries.
