Desco 13843 Dessicant Pak, 1 Unit, Case of 450
Desiccant is a drying agent used to lower the moisture content of air inside a closed space, such as a Moisture Barrier Bag (ANSI/ESD S11.4 Level 1 and Level 2 Static Control Bags). Desiccant is packaged in fractional units in order to facilitate its usage with a variety of bag sizes. One full “unit” of packaged desiccant will absorb the following quantities of water at equilibrium with air at 77°F (25°C): 3.00 grams @ 20% rH and 6.00 grams @ 40% rH, when tested to MIL-D-3464.

ESD Handbook TR 20.20 paragraph 184.108.40.206.2 Temperature “While only specialized materials and structures can control the interior temperature of a package, it is important to take possible temperature exposure into account when shipping electronic parts. It is particularly important to consider what happens to the interior of a package if the environment has high humidity. If the temperature varies across the dew point of the established interior environment of the package, condensation may occur. The interior of a package should either contain desiccant or the air should be evacuated from the package during the sealing process. The package itself should have a low WVTR (Water Vapor Transfer Rate).”
Note: A desiccant is a substance, such as calcium oxide or silica gel, that has a high affinity for water and is used as a drying agent.
