Here is how we ship a container of ventilators:
We manufacture special telescopic or collapsible ventilators. The collar slides into the head of the ventilator. This saves considerable amount of space and allows the shipping of more ventilators per container. Ventilators are collapsed into the shipped position, inspected (head is removable for ease of installation) and then installed by just fastening with four screws. In addition, we can pack the smaller ventilators into the larger ventilators. This fills the empty space inside the ventilators and basically ships them for the cost of only the larger ventilators.
A 30 cubic inch box contains three of the following:
AV-24 with 8 collar and 30 square flange
AV-18 with 6 collar and 24 square flange
AV-12 with 6 collar and 18 square flange
AV-8 with 4 collar and 13 square flange
AV-4 with 2 adapter to fit onto pipes
A 20 foot dry freight container can hold 63 of the cubic inch boxes. This method of packing results in the shipping of 189 units of each size of ventilator. The total amount of units shipped for a 20 foot container is 945 ventilators. There is a remaining 19 inches on the end that can be used for other ventilators or accessories.
A 40 foot dry freight container can hold 145 of the 30 cubic inch boxes. Again, this method of packing results in the shipping of 435 units of each size of ventilator. The total amount of units shipped for a 40 foot container is 2,175. There is a remaining 17 inches on the end that can be used for other ventilators or accessories.
The above selection of five ventilators per 30 cubic inch box is only a suggestion. Other combinations of size can be packed efficiently as well.
No ventilation manufacturer in the world can pack and be space efficient more than Active Ventilation Products, Inc.
