Choosing the Right Type of ESD Bags

03-03-2012-06Transporting and shipping anything electronic can be difficult. There is a lot of static which can be generated during any voyage. With all of the moving objects around, it is possible that a static electricity charge can be produced. Protecting anything electrical is possible even in these kinds of environments when using something like ESD bags. These bags offer a static barrier, often called anti-static bags, or with some electronics manufacturers Metal-In Shielding bags, which protects the contents of the bag from being affected by the environment around them. This provides safety no matter how you are shipping your electronics from one destination to another. This helps in making sure that you will not have effectively sent a piece of equipment which will be dead on arrival. Getting the Right Size One of the things that you will need to make sure of is that you are getting a bag which is big enough for your device. The device should be able to fit perfectly inside of the bag. If it is either wedged in or has too much room to move around, there is a possibility that the device will be damaged. Luckily, these come in all sizes to accommodate different kinds of devices that you might have to send. Getting Moisture Control Controlling moisture with moisture barrier bags is also highly important in making sure that your device will get there in good condition. You should be adding in gel packs which absorb any moisture which the device might otherwise come into contact with. If you are shipping from or to an environment where there is a lot of moisture, you might also want to use a special bag to prevent any moisture from getting into the bag in the first place. This will allow you to be able to get everything that you will need so that you will be able to protect your device form moisture as it ships.
