Container air as source of sweat
The water vapor content of the air in the container can only result in small quantities of sweat, above all because as a rule the container is for the most part filled with cargo.
In a 20' container with a capacity of 33.14 m³, which is filled with air at a temperature of 25°C and with a relative humidity of 80%, only 0.611 kg of water is released when the air cools to 10°C.
This, distributed finely over the surface of the cargo, cannot wet the cargo but may be the cause of corrosion and other lasting superficial damage.
