How much desiccant do I need?

It depends. The amount of desiccant required is usually dependent on the following factors:

the size of the air space to be desiccated
the nature of the material to be desiccated
the moisture surrounding the package
the type of desiccant to be used
the desired shelf life
the atmospheric conditions when/where the package is sealed

When AGM Container Controls receives a call from someone looking for a desiccant, our Desiccant Specialists will ask a number of questions to determine responses to the above information so he/she can calculate which type and size of desiccant will work best for their particular application.

To determine the number of "units" required to protect medium to large products/packages/areas, refer to the Desiccant Requirements Chart Unit Sizes .

To determine the number of "grams" required to protect small products/packages/areas, refer to the Desiccant Requirements Chart Gram Sizes .

For further information on how to determine the amount of desiccant required for your application, please email our sales staff using the Contact Us form.
