Press release from: Hydrosorbent Dehumidifiers

/ PR Agency:
Ashley Falls, Mass. -- The U.S. Government and military learned how to prevent moisture damage to valuable items and documents during World War II, and the solution is easy for anyone to follow.

Family photos, documents, guns, optical equipment, electronics, jewelry, and other treasured items can all be destroyed by condensation and moisture in the air.

Most damage to stored valuables and supplies is caused by humidity trapped in a storage area which turns into almost imperceptible condensation that causes irreparable damage. Since World War II, silica gel has been the desiccant of choice by government and industry, simply because it works so well at such a very low cost.

"Silica gel prevents moisture related problems before they begin. That is why so many products come with a small packet of silica gel. Silica gel creates a protective shield of dry air within any enclosed storage area," explained Diana Williams from Hydrosorbent Dehumidifiers.

Hydrosorbent Silica Gel Dehumidifiers are widely recognized as the best choice for protection from moisture. Each of the five different Hydrosorbent Dehumidifiers has a built-in indicator that signals when it is saturated and ready to be reactivated.

"Each dehumidifier can be reactivated by heating it in a conventional oven. It can be reused over and over again indefinitely. For a product that has a retail cost of less than $10, that's a fantastic return on investment," said Williams.

Hydrosorbent Dehumidifiers come in five different sizes to protect storage areas from just three cubic feet all the way up to 66 cubic feet of enclosed space. Top grade silica gel is contained within a container that has a built-in indicator to signal the need for reactivation.

Silica gel was used extensively during World War II to keep penicillin dry. It remains the highest capacity adsorbent available today.

"It is not a ‘gel' in the sense you would think of it," explained Williams. "And it should not be confused with silicon gel. Silica gel is actually a porous, granular form of silica, synthetically manufactured from sodium silicate."

The internal structure of each small silica gel granule is composed of a vast network of inter-connecting microscopic pores, which attract and hold moisture by a phenomena known as physical "adsorption" and capillary condensation.

A single teaspoon of Hydrosorbent Silica Gel has an internal adsorptive area equivalent to a football field, including the two end zones. Hydrosorbent Silica Gel is inert, non-toxic and safe to use to protect foods, medicines, sensitive materials, electronics, films, and so on. Even when saturated with adsorbed moisture, silica gel looks and feels dry to the touch.

"Hydrosorbent Silica Gel can be reused again and again, making it extremely economical for any application, large or small. Once saturated with moisture, silica gel can be easily reactivated in a conventional oven for lifetime protection," said Williams.
