Silica Gel With Molecular Sieve Canister
High-quality moisture-absorbing desiccants tend to be used as a combination of both the desiccants in pharma packaging. As silica gel and molecular sieve combine, they become more effective in eliminating moisture from the packaging.
Frequently Asked Questions ?
A silica gel and molecular sieve canister is a small container filled with silica gel and molecular sieve beads that are designed to adsorb moisture and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air inside pharmaceutical packaging.
Using a silica gel and molecular sieve canister in pharmaceutical packaging can help to extend the shelf life of products by reducing the moisture content and preventing degradation or deterioration. It can also improve product stability and efficacy, as well as reduce the risk of microbial growth and contamination.
The silica gel and molecular sieve beads in the canister adsorb moisture and VOCs from the air, which helps to maintain a dry environment inside the packaging. This can help to prevent moisture-related damage to the products and keep them in good condition.
The lifespan of a silica gel and molecular sieve canister can vary depending on the size of the canister, the humidity levels of the environment, and the amount of moisture and VOCs present in the air. Generally, a canister can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months before it needs to be replaced or recharged.
Silica gel and molecular sieve canisters are non-toxic and can be disposed of with regular household waste. However, it's recommended to recycle the canister if possible. Some manufacturers also offer canisters with biodegradable or recyclable materials to reduce waste.
