- Indicator desiccant absorbs 107% of its weight in water
- 4 to 8 mesh
This indicating desiccant (alumina silicate) quickly absorbs 107% of its own weight in water and dries to a dew point of –100°F. It reduces moisture in air or gas to 17% in a room with a temperature of 70°F and relative humidity of 40%. Desiccant can be repeatedly reactivated in a furnace, dehumidifier, or microwave oven. In addition to drying air, desiccant removes harmful substances from air or liquids. Pore sizes range from 2.6 to 5.0 Å.
