Desiccants

The desiccant that provides a combination others can't: Mil Spec quality plus 50 years of experience

Desiccite® 25 Adsorbent
Backed by more than a half century of adsorbent manufacturing know-how and experience, Disiccite® 25 drying material from Engelhard Corporation is one of the most effective and cost-efficient static desiccants available today. Desiccite® 25 adsorbent is highly reliable in helping to prevent corrosion, mildew and other humidity-related problems that can affect moisture-sensitive products in sealed containers.

Surpasses Mil Spec
Manufactured to achieve the highest industrial performance standards, Desiccite® 25 packaged adsorbent also meets or exceeds Military Specification MIL-D-3464E for the control of atmospheric humidity or moisture within a sealed package or container. Every lot of Desiccite® 25 adsorbent is completely tested to ensure it meets these rigorous quality specifications. In addition, all Engelhard activated clay desiccants are mined from the company's own extensive reserves of high-grade montmorillonite clay located in the U.S., ensuring ready availability and timely delivery.

Determining Units of Dessicite® 25 Adsorbent Required

How to determine your needs: The number of Desiccite® 25 adsorbent units required for your application depends on the type and size of container you use, and the amount and type of product and dunnage in that container.

One unit of Desiccite 25 adsorbent, which is approximately one ounce, will adsorb at least 3 grams of water vapor at 20% relative humidity and at least 6 grams of water vapor at 40% relative humidity, at 77º F (25ºC)
