Why Use Custom Dessicant?
It’s not uncommon for the design of a project to feature a compact internal volume, packed with all manner of electronic, optic, or mechanical components. Furthermore, what free space is available is often shaped in some strange or complex geometry. Despite the restrictions on any available space, these components must be properly protected against moisture, or risk damage and failure.
Custom molded desiccants, custom bags, and custom desiccators provide are designed and manufactured to specific size, shape, crush strength, and adsorption characteristics to meet the needs of constrained projects.
Benefits of Custom Dessicant
Where bulk and packaged desiccants are not able to provide the necessary protection to a project, custom molded desiccants can. Additionally, to help save space, some AGM molded desiccants are strong enough for us as structural components.
Custom desiccants can solve moisture protection, structural, size constraint, and debris contamination challenges.
Custom molded and bagged desiccants, as well as custom desiccators are all prominently positioned throughout technical industries, such as aerospace, defense, space, and automotive to provide moisture protection in restricted spaces.
Custom desiccants provide moisture control when standard bagged or canister desiccant is inadequate to your project’s needs due to size, shape, or moisture adsorption capability. Custom desiccants are commonly formed, pressed, or bagged desiccants that are shaped to fit your project without requiring you to perform a redesign. These desiccants are intended to properly fit into the cavities and open spaces of a specific product or its housing. An example of a custom desiccant is AGM’s H20Lock Pressed Desiccant.
H2OLock Pressed Desiccant is a is a composite desiccant designed to provide an optimum balance between strength, adsorption rate, moisture capacity, and thermal resistance. H2OLock is comprised of 4A molecular sieve and heat resistant binders. The desiccant’s composition provides H2OLock with:
- A serviceable maximum temperature of 150C (302F)
- Compressive strength of 6,000 psi
- High-performance moisture adsorptive capabilities
Due to its durability, H2OLock can operate as a structural component and moisture adsorber in one, frequently replacing plastic and metal parts, insulators, shock pads, and other pieces.
AGM can produce Custom Desiccant Bags in non-standard bag sizes using a benchtop heat sealer, up to 11.3″ x 11.3″ (interior dimensions). Bags may also be handsewn. The bag material is coated Tyvek® and may be filled with molecular sieve or silica gel. Bentonite clay may also be used; however, we advise you to contact AGM’s Engineering Department for bentonite clay availability.
AGM also offers custom desiccant bags in 10, 15, and 20 lbs weights for larger volumes. A variety of sizes, bag materials, and configurations are available upon request.
