How Do Desiccants Work?

Looking for a long term storage or transportation solution to help eliminate corrosion?

Do you want to use a product that’s environmentally safe?

Are you having a hard time calculating the right amount of desiccant you should be using?

Desiccants come in two formats; activated clay desiccants or silica gel desiccants. Both types of desiccants adsorb moisture within the packaging environment. The amount of moisture adsorbed within the packaging environment is dependent on the quality and quantity of desiccant that’s used. 

The sachets that are used to pack the silica gel desiccants are printed with “Do Not Eat” in black ink. A color is added to white silica gel material to act as a visual indicator. The color will show when the silica gel desiccant adsorbs moisture and may become inactive. If the silica gel desiccant is dried, the indicator will revert to its original color. 

Silica gel desiccants supplied by MetPro come in a number of sachet sizes. The silica gel consists of white beads within non-woven, non-shedding olefin. The material used to make our desiccants are EC food and DEF. STAND 81-68 approved.

The activated clay desiccants called CLIMAGEL are based on natural, environmentally friendly and inert desiccant clay that offers a very high adsorptive binding capacity. Our CLIMAGEL desiccants extract the moisture from the surrounding air in the packaging and bind it permanently.
