Small silica is present in all types of products, since it is a desiccant silica gel adsorbs – and water vapor. Leather products and food as the pepperoni lack of moisture may limit the growth of mold and spoilage. In electronics prevents condensation, which could damage the electronics. If a bottle of vitamins contains all moisture steam and cooled quickly, condensing water would destroy the pills. Small silica gel packets can be found in something that would be affected by excess moisture and condensation.
Silica gel filter is almost harmless, that’s why you find in food. Silicon dioxide or silicon dioxide (SiO2), is the same material found in quartz. The gel contains millions of tiny pores that can form and adsorb moisture retention. Silica gel filter is essentially porous sand.
Silica Gel can adsorb about 40% of its weight in moisture and can get the relative humidity within a bottle down to about 40 percent. Once saturated, you can drive the moisture and reuse the silica gel by heating it over 300-degree F (150 C).
