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 .
