Edition Date :
October 11, 2019
Desiccant capsules are small, rigid containers filled with desiccant and crimped with a permeable carton material at the top after filling. They can be inserted or placed inside packaging or medical devices to protect them from moisture degradation. Desiccant capsules are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to fit specific applications. 
 
Capsules are ideal for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, diagnostic and medical products that are susceptible to either chemical or physical degradation. Standard sorbent fills include silica gel (moisture adsorption) and molecular sieve (moisture and odors). Clariant also offers PharmaKeep® oxygen absorbing capsules and EQius® capsules filled with Equilibrium RH Stabilizers. 
 
Clariant offers desiccant capsules that are fully compliant with US FDA and EU regulations for use in pharmaceutical applications and that comply with US Pharmaceopia USP <670> standards for pharmaceutical desiccants.
 
End Applications:  
  • Cylindrical capsules: dropped into pharmaceutical bottles
  • Snapped capsules: integrated into bottle closures
  • Flat capsules: blister packaging
Benefits
