These desiccant capsules are excellent for SEM specimen boxes. The activated SiO2 is encapsulated in a moisture-permeable cartridge made from clear cellulose acetate.

Type 14 desiccant weight: 1.85 g and 8x40mm in size
For use in desiccator cabinets or non-vacuum desiccators. The clear polystyrene dish allows instant visual inspection of silica gel, which changes color from blue to pale pink as it absorbs moisture. If required, the desiccant can be easily regenerated by heating the cartridges in a 50°C oven overnight. Cartridges are individually sealed in aluminum foil.
Available in two sizes: 65mm diameter and 100 mm diameter
Convenient, easy-to-handle desiccant cartridge fits into the bottom section of standard plastic or glass desiccators. The cartridge consists of a durable polyester-felt bag with a perforated Mylar® cover sealed in place. It is filled with indicating silica gel which changes color from blue when dry to pink when moist. Saturated silica gel can be regenerated in a 300°C vented oven for 3 hours, or more depending on the size, until the blue color returns. This gel can be reactivated repeatedly. The cartridges come in a sealed moisture-proof pouch, ready to use.
