About






Since 1970, AGM Container Controls, Inc. has led in the design and fabrication of environmental control hardware for the military, defense, aerospace, industrial and container markets. Our facilities have the complete approval of the Army, Navy, Air Force, AEC and NASA. We have received many awards from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and major aerospace companies, including a Best Value Gold Medal from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for 10 consecutive years.

AGM's environmental control hardware protects missiles, munitions, electro-optics, electronics and various other military and industrial equipment from the deleterious effects of humidity, pressure, vacuum, dust, shock and vibration during storage, shipment and use. AGM products include: Breather Valves, Pressure Relief Valves, Vacuum Relief Valves, Immersion Proof Breathers, Desiccators, Desiccant Breathers, Humidity Indicators, Records Holders, Access Ports, Impact Indicators and Data Loggers, Tie Down Straps and Tie Down Shelving.

Over the years, AGM has identified and developed new applications for our environmental control hardware. AGM's control hardware, originally designed for DOD shipping containers, is now commonly used on the equipment stored in the DOD containers. For example, AGM specializes in the design and fabrication of custom desiccators used to protect the seekers and electro-optical equipment inside missiles and other weapon's systems by preventing moisture contamination that can fog optics and corrode electronics. AGM's Desiccators and Controlled Breathing Systems are used on sophisticated imaging systems, such as thermal and infrared cameras used for tracking, targeting, missile defense and counter-measure protection. Other new industries and applications for AGM products include the use of AGM Breather Valves on the battery enclosures of electric vehicles in the automotive industry. Additionally, AGM desiccant products are used on imaging systems used in the medical industry.

AGM now offers the same superior quality and precision that has been a hallmark of our OEM products through our expanded CNC Machining Services, Rapid Prototype Production, Inspection Services, Custom Engineering and Contract Manufacturing. AGM's full-service Machine Shop, which includes MSY and MS Turning Centers, Vertical Machining Centers, and other CNC machining equipment along with lathes, mills and grinders, can meet all your turning and milling needs. We utilize FeatureCam, along with BobCad and SolidWorks software, for programming your most complex parts. We are experienced in the machining of aluminums, steel, tool steel, stainless steel, plastics, brass and more.

AGM is also a stocking distributor of:
• Packaged desiccant (DesiPak Clay, Sorb It Silica gel and Tri Sorb Molecular Sieve), bulk desiccant (silica gel, molecular sieve and activated alumina) and Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI), also known as Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI) — these products are used to prevent moisture damage and protect and extend the life of a variety of products. Applications include industrial and electronics packaging, agricultural shipments and to prevent tarnishing of jewelry and precious metals;
• Impact Recorders and Data Loggers — these recorders and loggers are used to provide a timeline of environmental conditions during transport, handling and storage of products and equipment. The resulting data, which include temperature, relative humidity, shock and vibration, can be used to design packaging that will provide adequate protection from the environments the product and equipment will experience;
• Desiccant Breathers — these breathers are used to protect hygroscopic liquids and solids from moisture contamination during storage and during transfer from drums (Drum Vent Dryers) and tanks (Tank Vent Dryers). Transformer Desiccant Breathers protect the oil in the conservator tanks used to cool power transformers.
