Silgel Launches Non-Dusting Desiccant Canister

December 9, 2005

UK-based Silgel Packaging LTD introduces Dri-Mac, a new type of patented desiccant canister that is 100% non-dusting and has been designed to meet the high specification drying and packaging needs of pharmaceutical companies. The non-toxic canister can be used for high-speed automatic insertion to eliminate moisture and odors from product packaging. Not only does the canister shape produce a five-fold increase in automatic insertion throughput over traditional desiccant sachets, but it also totally removes the risk of loose desiccant contamination, according to company executives. A sonic welding technology, which embeds the Tyvek end caps into the main body of the canister, ensures a completely robust seal and total product integrity.
