What are the benefits of using them?

  • Virtually non-dusting to eliminate product contamination
  • Welded ends for greater structural strength - stay sealed even under extreme pressure
  • No label to move, catch, shift or fall off
  • Can withstand irradiation for sterilization

Typical Applications

Plastic Desiccant Canisters have features that make it easy to substitute them for other canisters you may be using. They are sized to fit existing dispensing equipment, so you don?t have to make expensive or complex alterations to your production line. Plastic Desiccant Canisters are made of FDA grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) so you don?t need to perform additional stability testing, and they offer effective adsorption rates to protect your product. In addition, they can withstand irradiation to allow for final product sterilization.

Handling of desiccants is critical to their performance. The moisture adsorption capacity of desiccant packets can be diminished by up to 25% within one hour or less of exposure depending on the RH of the environment. Care should be taken to ensure that desiccant packets are stored and handled properly to ensure maximum effectiveness.
