RS PRO Humidity Indicating Desiccator Silica Gel, 30 g

Controlling moisture inside of the electrical or electric equipment has never been more accessible since the discovery of the Silica Gel over 100 years ago. There are many comprehensive ranges of humidity control products available on the market, which might be a bit overwhelming and time-consuming. To find the right Desiccant that absorbs and self-indicating how dry or wet the moisture level is you need a reliable Silica Gel Packets without ruining your budget.

Today, we are proudly introducing our own branded RS PRO Humidity Indicating Desiccator Silica Gel that acts as a complete packet against moisture. The Silica Gel Packets have their place in enclosure heaters, humidity indicators, differential relief valves, immersion proof breathers or drain plug.

The polycarbonate cover precisely monitors saturation and show when reactivation is required - the process requires 4 hours at 120°C in a ventilated oven.

It is worth to note that silica container is resistant to alcohols, ethers, hydrocarbons, weak acids and bases.

If you want to avoid expensive downtime and unnecessary challenging servicing difficulties of your devices, the black pack container allows you to keep it under control.

The impressive operating temperature range of -40°C up to +90°C find appreciation by many users to keep your electronics safe and allowing flexibility to your next project.

Features and Benefits

  • Intuitive data interpretation as blue colour indicates dry status whereas pink indicates when the maximum amount of moisture is hitting the limit

  • The black packet is a 50 g size

  • The re-use of the Desiccant is possible when 120°C is reached (four hours in a ventilated oven)

  • Silica is a non-flammable, non-indicating and non-toxic substance


Humidity indicating desiccants have found widespread use in various industries including:

  • Food

  • Packing

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Manufacturing

  • Radar instrumentation

  • Hydraulic systems

  • Metals

  • Aerospace

  • Electronics like computer equipment, telecommunication or cameras
