Reusable shipping containers that are used to transport and store sensitive
Reusable shipping containers are sealed systems designed to protect sensitive equipment from damage due to the ingress of moisture, sand, dust, and other foreign object debris. A controlled-breathing container is one that utilizes automatic breather valves to equalize destructive differential pressures, both positive and negative, that develop due to changes in temperature, barometric pressure, and altitude. A container design that incorporates breather valves requires less structural reinforcement and therefore allows considerable weight savings as well as a reduction in packaging cube.
To aid in the opening of a shipping container, breather valves often include a manual relief feature to equalize residual differential pressure.
