Long-Term Storage Covers
There are unique challenges that you face when you are looking to store a large scale, precision piece of equipment for an extended period of time. Location, altitude, humidity even the changing characteristics of the hydraulic fluids and lubricants used by the unit itself can impact the integrity of the equipment over time. Our Long-Term Storage Covers are designed to manage these conditions to create the stable, controlled environment required for long-term storage of advanced equipment at a fraction of the cost of other methods.
Vapor Moisture Impervious: UITP Long-Term Storage Covers are constructed from a Vapor Moisture Impermeable vinyl material, or VMI, specifically created for a low vapor transmission rate. The covers are sealed together using both forced hot air and RF sealing methods, to ensure there are no stitches for moisture to find its way through the membrane.
Closure: Our bags must be able to open and separate in order to engulf your equipment for ease of installation. This creates the problem of how to effectively seal the membrane back up. For this task we use a specially designed closure system that, when connected, creates a vapor lock seal.
Control: Effective long-term storage of equipment requires the creation of a contained atmosphere that can be controlled. To accomplish this we use desiccants to regulate moisture levels within the cover, as well as humidity indication technology designed specifically for monitoring controlled environments.
Cost: The price of sustaining an advanced piece of equipment for an extended period of time can be quite expensive. Solid containment systems come with a high price tag, and can create the burden of shipping and storing these bulky units when they are not in use. The VMI that we use for our covers is a perfect alternative to aluminum or steel used to create solid storage systems. Our Long-Term Storage Covers can be neatly folded into a compact size and shipped with cradle. Wherever your unit goes, its cover can go too, without adding additional overhead.
