Blue Indicating Silica Gel Beaded 2-5mm


DelSORB® SGBIB silica gel is the naturally occurring mineral silicon dioxide that has been purified and processed into a hard, smooth beaded form. The beads are then saturated with a moisture indicating solution that gives them a deep blue color when dry. It is also known as a narrow pore silica gel and has a vast network of interconnecting pores with diameters of 20-30Å. These pores have a strong affinity for moisture and use physical adsorption and capillary condensation to trap and hold it. Silica gel will remove moisture at temperatures as high as 220°F, but is best used at room temperature (70-90°F) and high relative humidity (60-90%Rh). The color changes from blue to purple to pink as it adsorbs moisture.

As a primary desiccant or blended with other desiccants in any application where visual control of moisture is required, such as compressed air dryers, gas drying, breathers, for protection of non-consumable packaged goods, drying and storage of flowers and seeds, etc. Due to the addition of the moisture indicator, DelSORB® SGBIB Blue Indicating Silica Gel should not be used in contact with products intended for consumption such as food or pharmaceuticals.
