Canisters are ideal for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products that are susceptible to either chemical or physical degradation due to moisture. Silica gel (silicone dioxide) and molecular sieve (zeolite) are offered depending on the moisture adsorption attributes required for any given application. Active carbon is used either independently or in combination with silica gel to provide odor adsorption properties.
Airnov’s laser-marked canister (see image above) is the newest innovation in the desiccant canister product line. This unique product removes inks, adhesives, labels, and varnishes to reduce contamination risks, creating a more sustainable canister. Laser-marking artwork is produced in-house, reducing time to market for custom-marked canisters. Sorbent materials include silica gel , activated carbon , and combinations to meet specific stability requirements.
Airnov offers desiccant canisters that are fully compliant with US FDA and EU regulations for use in pharmacuetical applications and that comply with US Pharmaceopia USP <670> standard for pharmaceutical desiccants.
