Are Desiccants Necessary?

时间:2023-02-27 13:48:55 来源:本站

Desiccants can be necessary, it depends on the characteristics of your products. For products sensitive to moisture, desiccant needs to be added during packaging. The presence of moisture can cause damage or degradation to many different types of products, and desiccants can help prevent this by absorbing excess moisture and maintaining the desired moisture levels inside the packaging.

What Are Examples of Desiccants?

  1. Silica gel: Silica gel is a commonly used desiccant that is made from silicon dioxide. It is available in a variety of different sizes and shapes, and can absorb moisture up to 40% of its weight.

  2. Calcium chloride: Calcium chloride is another commonly used desiccant that is known for its high absorption capacity. It can absorb moisture up to 200% of its weight, making it a good choice for products that require a high level of moisture control.

  3. Molecular sieves: Molecular sieves are desiccants that are made from synthetic zeolite. They are highly effective at absorbing moisture from the air, and can be used in a wide range of different applications.

  4. Bentonite clay: Bentonite clay is a natural desiccant that is made from volcanic ash. It is highly absorbent and can be used in a wide range of different packaging applications.

  5. Activated carbon: Activated carbon is a type of charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to make it highly porous. It can be used as a desiccant to absorb moisture and also has the ability to remove odors and impurities from the air.

Where Are Desiccants Used?

  1. Pharmaceuticals: Many pharmaceutical products are sensitive to moisture and can become ineffective or even dangerous if exposed to high levels of humidity. Desiccants are commonly used in packaging of medicines to help maintain the required moisture levels.

  2. Electronic components: Electronic devices and components are also highly sensitive to moisture, which can cause rust, corrosion, and damage to the circuitry. Desiccants are commonly used in the packaging of electronic components such as semiconductors, computer chips, and printed circuit boards.

  3. Food products: Some food products, such as dried fruits, nuts, and jerky, require low moisture levels to prevent spoilage and maintain shelf life. Desiccants are commonly used in the packaging of such products to help prevent moisture absorption.

  4. Textiles: Fabrics and textiles are also susceptible to damage from moisture, which can cause mildew, mold, and degradation of the material. Desiccants are used in the packaging of textiles such as clothing, shoes, and bags to prevent moisture-related damage.

  5. Cosmetics: Many cosmetic products, such as powders and creams, are sensitive to moisture and can become clumpy or rancid if exposed to high humidity levels. Desiccants are used in the packaging of cosmetics to help maintain the desired texture and shelf life of the products.

How to Pack Desiccants into Containers?

In addition to pack by manual, using a desiccant inserter is a effective and efficient way to filling desiccants into bottles.

Commonly, the desiccant inserting machine will adopt high durability knife edge to cut the desiccant packets to the same length. “No bottle no filling” is the highlight of the machine, which is realized by the photoelectric bottle sensor.

The basic working principle will be:

1. Bottles are stopped by the bottle blocking device at the position where the desiccants drop

2. The stepper motor drives the pouch feeding structure, and the color mark sensor automatically controls the pouch feeding distance

3. After the desiccant pouch is pulled out from the reel, the cutting device cuts the desiccant pouch and drops it into the bottle
