Non toxic dessicants, for adsorbing moisture from the atmosphere and gas streams, which contain iron salts as a colour indicator. The dry material has an intense orange colour and changes to a pale beige/white colour on adsorption of water.


  • Water adsorption capacity at 50% RH is a minimum of 23%
  • Loss on drying at 140 °C is less than 2%
  • At concentration of 10% in water, pH is from 1,5 to 5
  • Regeneration can be achieved by heating to 140 °C in a drying oven
