Silica Gel Desiccant Packets
Silica Gel Desiccant Packets are a very popular form of humidity monitoring device that is being used in many different types of industrial applications. These packets are placed inside containers that are housing very moisture sensitive devices from electronics to medicines and from air compressors to semiconductors.
Railway transportation is using them frequently in the shipment of their materials across the country while satellite and radio transmission installations have implemented them to keep their sensitive digital technologies from deteriorating and potentially leading to a decrease in the effectiveness of signal generation.
Cat litter manufacturers are using them for the shipment, storage and handling of their products, and even museums and libraries have incorporated these Silica Gel Desiccant Packets into their preventative maintenance strategies for materials that are susceptible to the negative aging processes caused by increased exposure to environmental factors.
The main active ingredient is Silica Gel which absorbs moisture at a rapid rate without producing negative chemical reactions. It is odorless, tasteless, non-corrosive and non-toxic, making it very safe and reliable for a variety of uses and procedures. In addition to absorbing water, it is also useful in CO2, CO12, HC1, nitrogen-sulphide compounds, various aromatics and even gasoline hydrocarbons.
Silica Gel Desiccant Packets have also proven highly effective for the handling and shipping of air compression equipment. As compressed air is passed through the filtering packets, the potential for damaging moisture buildup is decreased significantly. Due to their wide range of uses in many diverse industrial applications, these Gel Packs are quickly becoming an commercial standard for the monitoring of relative humidity inside sealed packages or containers.
