Calcium chloride for testing moisture absorption rate

Desiccant simply refers to a substance that removes moisture from the moist products. A commonly used desiccant is the calcium chloride, which chemically reacts with water molecules to absorb moisture from the surrounding atmosphere and transform it into a gel, to achieve an adsorption effect. The moisture absorption rate of calcium chloride is 8-15 times that of ordinary desiccants.
