Various Desiccant Applications

Various Desiccant Applications

Desiccants are universally applicable

Apart from the logistics and pharma industry, a large number of companies from various sectors and industries use desiccants by ThoMar, for example the energy sector, residential construction, gardening, plastics engineering, or the automotive sector. Didn't you find the right product or required information for your case of application? Don't hesitate to give us a call. Together we will find a solution that is just right for you!

Example of use: Plastics engineering

Products manufactured by injection moulding are highly sensitive to moisture. When absorbing moisture, these parts tend to change their shape. Especially in the automotive sector, there is little tolerance regarding the accuracy of fit of the individual components. By enclosing a suitable desiccant when you ship these products, you can minimize the risk of complaints by customers.

Example of use: Ground lamps

Lamps that were firmly installed in the ground heat up during operation. The process of cooling down lets a vacuum form within the body of the lamp, and the ambient - possibly humid - air is drawn into it. Neither air nor humidity can escape, so the humidity condensates at the walls of the lamp body. To prevent this, silica gel pouches (e.g. Desi Dry from ThoMar's range of goods) can be placed in the lamp body, which absorbs the excessive moisture.

Example of use: Bridge construction

The Oeresund Bridge and other bridges leading over stretches of water are highly exposed to the surrounding elements. There are always cavities in the base of the ferroconcrete piers. Lying underwater, the prevalent condition here is a humid climate. The operators of the bridge need to regularly replace the desiccants fitted into the pier base in order to keep humidity at a level that is innocuous for the structure of the bridge.

There are desiccant pouches fitted into the pier bases.

Example of use: 3D printer

Plastic is the most common print material in 3D printers. For a printer using fused deposition modeling technology the plastic is placed in the printer in the form of a so-called filament reel. When these filaments absorbs moisture the 3D printer can no longer optimally process them. Therefore we advise you to use a desiccant when you ship or store these materials.

The use of desiccants ensures a consistent product quality
when storing and shipping 3D filaments.

Example of use: IBC for liquids

When transporting liquids or fluid substances, e.g. foodstuff, cosmetics, and chemicals, people use so-called IBC (intermediate bulk containers). After cleaning and in before refilling the IBC, they need to eliminate the residual damp within the container. Desiccants can take on this job.

The drying of intermediate bulk containers can be
accelerated by desiccants.
