How often have you transported goods from city to city only to find that moisture has found its way in and caused severe damage? Thankfully, there are solutions to the problem known as desiccant sachets that offer protection from moisture and oxidation. Protection Experts Australia is a company with a rich history in preserving the condition of your goods and supplying the necessary hardware for transporting cargo.
Benefits of Desiccant Bags
We’ve all come across desiccant packets at some point in our lives. You’ll find them packed with various items ranging from shoes to food and medication. Desiccants refer to a combination of substances that absorb moisture from the air around it and promotes a dryer environment, which is extremely beneficial for several reasons.
Since desiccants primarily remove moisture from the air, it’s often used around food items. Mould and other bacteria thrive on the existence of water molecules and spread rapidly. You will find that food items deteriorate expeditiously in the presence of moisture resulting in wastage. However, desiccants hold particles of water and create a dry space for those food items, thus delaying the spoiling process.
Desiccants are available in compact packets that are easy to use. There’s nothing complicated about throwing in a few sachets of desiccants to help preserve whatever item you’re transporting. During the transit, your package may be exposed to several elements; however, including desiccants removes any water in the air or bad odours keeping your container and its contents in pristine condition.
When you receive packages that contain desiccants in the form of Silica Gel, you don’t have to throw them out immediately. You can use these desiccants again wherever you deem necessary. You’d have to reactivate the silica gel by heating it to release the absorbed moisture into the atmosphere, and it will be ready to go to work again.
Little Known Uses for Desiccant Packs
Upon buying certain products, you receive little desiccant packs with the package. Instead of throwing them away, you should keep them around. They are free, moisture-absorbing packets of power that can come in handy. Below are some of the many ways desiccants can be used to solve every day problems:
One of the most frustrating problems for a DIY individual is the fact that when a project comes around, you visit your toolbox only to find rusty contents. Any form of moisture on your tools, will cause deterioration and adversely affect its usefulness. When you throw in a few sachets of desiccant, it prevents rust and corrosion from taking over and maintains the pristine condition of your tools.
If you’ve ever dropped your mobile phone into a puddle of water by accident, there’s usually no hope of a revival. However, people have tried removing all the components such as the battery and cover and placing it all in a plastic bag. You should include several packets of desiccant and let it sit for at least 24-hours. While it isn’t guaranteed, the packs of silica gel may absorb all the moisture and return your mobile phone to regular operation.
Humidity is the cause of major damage when it comes to maintaining the condition of our keepsakes. If you have memories in the form of books, photographs, certificates or letters, you’d want them to last a lifetime; however, the condition can suffer when exposed to moisture. Including desiccants with an old box of photographs helps to preserve them. Additionally, if there are any rare books that you treasure, silica gel sachets assist in protecting them from moisture damage.
There are other ways to use desiccants such as placing them near your bathroom mirror to prevent heavy fogging or in your luggage when you’re returning home from holiday to avoid a nasty odour.
