DIN 55473 desiccant
Characteristics of desiccants according to DIN 55473
The products in our desiccant line according to DIN 55473 protect sensitive products against mould infestation, corrosion and other forms of moisture damage that may occur during prolonged storage and transport. DIN desiccant pouches are particularly suited for the protection of electronic devices, chemical products and pharmaceuticals.
Moreover, the DIN desiccant pouches satisfy the requirements of DIN 55473 and the technical criteria of the military standard MIL-D-3464E. Based on these strict DIN standards, the product has the advantage that the quality and size of the each desiccant are almost identical, irrespective of the manufacturer.
Mode of action of DIN desiccants
DIN desiccant pouches contain dry clay with properties that enable the rapid and sustained absorption and storage of atmospheric water vapour. Desiccant units (DU) are the unit of measurement for desiccant pouches according to DIN 55473. A desiccant unit describes the quantity of desiccant needed to absorb at last 6.0 g of water vapour at 23 °C (± 2 °C) air temperature and 40 % relative humidity. The dry clay is a natural product, so its composition and weight may vary, depending on the quality of the clay itself.
Application of DIN desiccants
The DIN desiccant is easy and convenient to use. The desiccant pouches are simply placed in the product boxes or distributed evenly – preferably on top of – the vulnerable space in order to achieve optimum results. Here, it is important to take care that a barrier envelope is fitted to isolate the packed products and the desiccant from the outside atmosphere.
Available variants of DIN desiccant according to DIN 55473
You can buy DIN desiccant made of distinctive pouch materials - dust-proof or low-dust. These attributes, dust-proof and low-dust, describe the density of the pouch fabric, and the amount of dust allowed to pentetrate thorugh the fabric.
