Rubingel Desiccant Bags and Sachets

Rubingel Desiccant Bag Silica Gel

Highly efficient protection against moisture through precise control of saturation

Rubingel desiccant bags are filled with an highly efficient indicator silica gel, offering a reliable and controllable protection of moisture-sensitive goods. The special indicator Rubingel allows a visual control of the saturation, thereby increasing the efficiency of protecting machines and goods across all industries from moisture. The color “ruby” indicates activity of the desiccant and the color “yellow” indicates the activity threshold point has been reached. Up to a water load of approx. 5 % by weight, it is absolutely ruby; at increasing water adsorption, the indicator turns yellow.


Rubingel desiccant bags offer reliable protection

Rubingel desiccant bags are filled with the highly efficient desiccant Rubingel - an indicator silica gel - which allows for a high adsorption and drying rate thanks to their superior porous properties. The adsorption capacity is very high with approx. 30% of its own weight at 80% RH and 25°C. Rubingel desiccant bags are chemically inert and nontoxic. Therefore they can be used for protecting materials such as metal.

Rubingel Desiccant Bags and Sachets unit amounts

The filling of the Rubingel desiccant bags is measured in units. One desiccant unit is equal to the amount of Rubingel capable of adsorbing a minimum of 3g at 20% relative humidity and 6g at 40% relative humidity of water vapour at an air temperature of 23°C (±2).

The DIN 55473 only allows for the description in desiccant units. The following table offers an overview of the approximate amount of desiccant in each bag. The Rubingel desiccant bags are manufactured in version B "dust free" and are therefore also suitable for highly sensitive products.

Rubingel desiccant bags and sachets - also available as custom-made versions

Rubingel desiccant bags and sachets can be individually produced according to individual needs. The basic packaging is imprinted with an instruction manual. Inside this basic packaging, the desiccant bags may be stored in dry areas for extended periods of time without losing any of their dehumidifying capacity. Each of the basic packaging is imprinted with an instruction manual and contains a humidity level indicator set to 8% relative humidity.


Rubingel desiccant bags and sachets are environmentally friendly

Our desiccant bags are biodegradable, non-toxic and can be easily disposed of with household waste.

The basic packaging consists of a polyethylene bag in with DIN 55473 and applies for all bag types. The items are shipped inside a corrugated cardboard box which holds up to 30 kg with a net weight of up to approx. 20 kg:

For a correct alculation based on DIN 55474, the following parameters are required:

  • volume inside the packaging in m³
  • humidity content per m³ air subject to the temperature and relative humidity during the packing
  • transport and storage time in days
  • water vapour permeability for the expected climate
  • amount of water vapour to be adsorbed by drying agent unit according to the permitted final moisture content
  • factor for moisture content per gram of the hygroscopic packing aid subject to the dry condition for wood, paper and cardboard
