Item # DCap, Desiccant Capsules

The purpose of desiccant capsules is to extend the shelf life and efficacy of pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, diagnostic and medical products by preventing damage from moisture and other harmful elements.
Desiccant capsules are small, ridgid containers filled with desiccant material like silica gel and molecular sieve aimed at absorbing moisture. They can also contain fills like activated carbon, aimed at controlling odors.

Why Use Them?

"Desiccant capsules are the most widely used capsules in the pharmaceutical industry. Much like desiccant canisters, the rigid shape of desiccant capsules is ideal for high-speed automatic insertion of rates between 300 and 600 capsules per minute. In addition, desiccant capsules can be molded into a wide range of shapes and sizes to fit specific applications. Flat capsules, for instance, can be inserted into blister packages, while other options can be assembled directly into packaging closures. Desiccant capsules are crimped with a special carton material at the top after filling. Their distinctive shape, as well as their ability to be manufactured in various colors with multiple printing options, clearly differentiates them from pharmaceutical tablets and pills, preventing accidental ingestion."

Available Configurations
Similar to Desiccant Canisters but can be molded into a variety of shapes and sizes.
