Odour control packets containing activated carbon are an excellent desiccant for controlling any bad smell from the primary packaging. Thus, when combined with other primary packaging materials, the desiccant becomes more effective and a versatile odour-controlling solution for pharmaceutical companies. Therefore, the odour control packets ensure that the products reach the end-users without losing their quality and efficiency.
Pharmaceutical Desiccants is involved in manufacturing activated carbon desiccants in the form of pillow pak, unit pak and canisters. The odour control desiccants are designed to remove unwanted odours in the primary packaging. However, the highly porous structure of activated carbon provides a large surface area for adsorption.
The odour control desiccant is considered to be the best pharma-grade activated carbon used in pharmaceutical packaging companies to maintain the efficiency of the products. Activated carbon results in an excellent desiccant with low attrition properties.
Odour control desiccants are manufactured from several materials such as coconut shells, peat, wood, coal and fruit stones. These materials result in varying degrees of pores and distribution during activation. Therefore, using coconut shells in manufacturing creates non-dusting desiccant packets. Additionally, coconut shells are a sustainable and renewable resource.
The manufacturing process's first step includes the raw material's thermal decomposition, which produces carbonaceous with tiny pores. In the next step, the base material is activated through steam heat up to 1,1000?C.
The odour control desiccant is stable over a wide range of pH levels. Therefore, the inertness of the desiccant does not result in the decomposition of pharma products.
