Desiccant Capsules

Desiccant capsules are a very good protection for all pharmaceuticals due to their various sizes and shapes. They can be filled with a variety of desiccants to fulfill the individual requirements of specific use cases. The standard desiccant used in desiccant capsules are silica gel and molecular sieves.


Desiccant capsules are filled with active desiccants during the production process. In order to maintain the desiccants' performance level during transport and storage, the product is delivered in hermetically sealed protective packaging. The standard form of packaging is a 0.2 mm polyethylene pouch further containing a humidity indicator. Another option is the use of water vapour resistant laminated aluminium foils in line with TL 8135-0003.

There is an option to select from transparent laminated foil bags possessing a very high water vapour resistance in compliance with MIL-B22191, type I.
