“Desiccant Clay With High Absorption Capacity From Iran”: Clay absorbers offer a cheap alternative to absorb moisture and water vapour in an instrument box or in a container or in any other space where moisture leads to molds. Some houses that make use of clay bricks often do not get moldy because the moisture absorbent qualities of the clay remove the dampness that increases mold growth. The moisture absorption property of this Iranian absorbent clay is very high and the price is also very low in comparison with other clays and it also exists in a few mines in Iran only. Not all companies in the world know this valuable absorbing clay of Bentonite. While the Montmorillonite inside the clay tends to be dried, the absorption feature of the clay gets stronger and absorbs more moisture and more environmental water vapour. Due to its adsorption properties, Bentonite is almost used as a desiccant to prevent the damaging effects of moisture, including deterioration, mildew, mold, and corrosion. It is packed with a variety of goods, including machinery and equipment, military goods, steel or metal components, electrical components, home storage and ammunitions. “Benefits of Bentonite Clay VS Silica Gel Desiccant”: Bentonite desiccants offer a higher adsorption capacity than silica gel desiccants and are, therefore, a feasible alternative to silica gel. Bentonite clay is also a greener alternative to silica gel as it is mined in Iran with a wide view to protecting the environment, manufactured in Iran and takes very less energy to produce. Bentonite Clay desiccant (with Montmorillonite minimum 86% and from Smectite Group) is created by the controlled drying of calcium Bentonite clay. Bentonite desiccants are substantially less costly than equivalent silica gel desiccants. This desiccant is chemically inactive, non-corrosive and all-natural clay. It absorbs and binds water vapour molecules to its massive inner and outer surface area, making the adsorption capacity of Bentonite considerable, even at low humidity levels. As the existing humidity in a container increases, the adsorption capacity of Bentonite desiccant also increases and this feature is not found in any other mineral clay. “Desiccant Clay Having Montmorillonite 86%, With High Absorption Capacity From Iran Mines”: When the word “desiccant” is used, people usually think of the three main types of desiccants: Indicating Silica Gel, Molecular Sieve, and Clay desiccant. Those who have heard of other desiccants, like Calcium Oxide, Montmorillonite Clay and Calcium Sulfide, may or may not have a clear understanding of those desiccant types. Now we are going to introduce a very attractive kind of natural desiccant clay that is directly extracted from the mines in Iran and the moisture can be decreased up to 7.5% ~ 8% by our heating machines. The clay is also capable to be formed to powder and by heating-like machine; the powder is formed to granules afterwards and these granules would pass on the sieve from 1mm to 10 mm (based on order). Nothing extra will be added to the clay and the absorption characteristic is naturally depended on the own clay. The clay will successfully regenerate for repeated use at very low temperatures without substantial deterioration or swelling. However, this property causes clay to give up moisture readily back into the moisture conditions as temperatures rise. Clay is a good basic desiccant that works satisfactorily below 120°F (approximately 50°C). Above 120° F, there is a possibility that the clay will give up moisture rather than pulling it in, so anticipated storage and transportation conditions should be considered. The best feature of the clay is that it is normally the cheapest desiccant between other desiccant elements. Clay is highly effective within normal temperature and relative humidity ranges. The color is usually creamy and off-white and the color does not tend to change under heating conditions or after adding water to it. This feature lets the clay be used as a fuller to paint industry too. Clay desiccants are non-hazardous, moisture adsorbent substances created by the controlled drying of a calcium (bentonite) aluminosilicate clay. This naturally occurring montmorillonite clay has a special affinity for moisture and is chemically inert and non-corrosive. The layered structure of clay desiccant attracts and adsorbs moisture onto its surface and between its layers. Where to use Clay desiccant? - Where to use Silica gel? Silica gel is normally used in the food, pharmaceutical, and electronics fields and in all areas where it is necessary not to have a dispersion of powder of any kind or in cases in which the available space permits the use of only a small bag, with a high absorption capacity. Clay desiccant is used in all other sectors, in various types of packaging with different sizes. In any event, we invite you to contact our agents in order to determine your needs and find the best solution for protecting your products in an efficient manner. Manufacturers also use this dryer Bentonite clay as raw materials to produce desiccant bags under the specific conditions. FRS Dryer Bentonite Products: There are 3 kinds of dryer Bentonite clay that our factory manufactures: 1) Code: Gr-Akb-Na: Natural Bentonite granules with min 730% absorption / Not heated / creamy color / size: based on order from 1mm to 10mm 2) Code: Gr-Akb-He01: Heated Bentonite granules with min 800% absorption / Heated under 350 – 500 centigrade indirectly / creamy color / size: based on order from 1mm to 10mm 3) Code: Gr-Akb-He02: Heated Bentonite granules with min 550% absorption / Heated under 350 – 500 centigrade indirectly / off-white color / size: based on order from 1mm to 10mm The main differences between our products are in: A) Absorbency percentage. B) Being natural or heated C) Becoming granule by the heating-like machine or only by Sieve process. FRS Dryer Bentonite Packing Styles: As the products are capable highly to absorb the water vapor and moisture, the packaging style for dryer products must be in form of anti-moisture layers. The packs are based on the customer needs even in vacuumed packs. The weights can be different and with 8 KG bags, 20 KG bags, 25 KG bags, 30 KG bags and 35 KG bags and big jumbo bags. We are also able to put your needed small bags into jumbo bags based on order.
