Kite’s clay desiccants are used as a dehumidifier to control moisture in contained environments including pharmaceutical, medical, food, electronic components and textiles. The range of sachet sizes suit many different requirements and as they come being ready-bagged, simply place them where required.
These natural mineral, economical desiccant sachets offer a greener alternative for moisture absorption. The montmorillonite clay inside is non-hazardous, non-corrosive and chemically inert making it a safer option for a range of products.
Clay is the most cost-effective of all desiccants and is particularly effective below 49 degrees and below 50% humidity, able to absorb up to 28% of its weight. Once above 49 degrees either silica gel or molecular sieve desiccant would be recommended.
For a well-sealed item we recommend:
- 10 grams for every cubic foot of volume
- 340 grams per cubic metre of volume
