Silica gel orange is enriched with an organic indicator which offers orange color to silica gel. It is used for moisture absorption on an industrial level.

It is no side effects in the environment and safe for health because of its organic nature and also it is non-toxic. When it becomes moisture free, the color of orange beads turns to dark green to black. Like blue silica gel, orange silica gel is also an indicating. Silica gel orange beads can absorb 40 percent moisture of its weight in water vapor. Orange beads are available in 2-5mm, 3-5mm, 4-8mm size.

Silica gel orange desiccant is widely used in breather transformer application in powder transformer manufacturing industry. Generally, power industries breather are used for controlling moisture. Moisture is creating for cooling and heating of machines, and prevent from this moisture in breather silica gel orange is used to absorb that moisture amount.

Orange silica gel is a moisture absorbing content. Basically, orange silica gel is used where products need to be protected from humidity and moisture. There are much application needs to use adsorbents like breather transformers process, leather products packaging, paper, and cardboard packaging, computer and electronic parts packaging, pharmaceuticals diagnostic kits packaging and many more.
