TOP 2 types of popular desiccant today

With industry specifics, tools may be used. separate machinery or desiccant. But there are two types of desiccants commonly found in all industries, especially pharmaceuticals, electronics, food, textiles ... they are silica gel and clay. So what are their characteristics and differences?
Clay desiccant
Clay desiccant is a desiccant particle made from clay, in the form of a very small pellet or in the form of a powder, of gray color. Clay granules are an economical and very effective desiccant product when used under normal temperature and relative humidity conditions to absorb moisture.
Inside the packaging, the bag or the desiccant bag is very effective and safe to reduce the level of moisture inside the package. Manufactured with natural raw materials, safe for the user and for the environment, their clays and tissues are selected to ensure product quality in terms of durability and high levels of absorption.
Silica gel  desiccant
Silica gel desiccant is a highly active absorbing material in the form of particles or spheres of different sizes, providing excellent physical hygroscopicity because of its good absorption, chemical stability, area wide surface and high mechanical strength. The chemical name of silica gel is Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), odorless, tasteless and non-toxic.
Silica gel hygroscopic particles have the ability to absorb a lot of water, about 1/3 of its weight, without going through chemical reactions or changing shape or size. Even when they are saturated (absorb enough water, moisture), the seeds are dry to the touch.
The desiccant can be reused after being heated at 120ºC for two hours. These properties make silica gel extremely useful and handy for controlling humidity and humidity, in everyday life and in manufacturing and fabrication it is used to keep equipment and supplies dry, Protects against rust, corrosion, dullness, mildew, damage.

Basic difference of 2 types of desiccant Clay and Silica gel
Desiccant ability: Silica gel desiccant wins the ability to absorb moisture, resist moisture in the same time. However, along with the fast desiccation, the seeds are also easily saturated quickly (out of ability to absorb moisture).

Application: Silica gel desiccant is widely used in most industries, manufacturing, manufacturing ...

Price: The price of the clay desiccant is cheaper than the price of the silica gel desiccant.

Impact on the environment: Clay particles are made from clay with a fast decomposition time, so they are more environmentally friendly than silica gel desiccants. For goods exported to countries with high environmental standards, clay desiccant should be chosen instead of silica gel.
