Blue Indicating Silica Gel Can Prevent Mechanical Failures

Water in any form can arguably be considered one of the most destructive forces we face, and in case you didn’t realize it, 70% our planet’s surface is covered by water. This is a good thing if you like to fish, boat or garden but if you work within a power station or navigate a container ship, moisture is the root of all evil.

A power station, also referred to as a power plant and sometimes a generating station or generating plant, is an industrial facility for the generation of electric power generally connected to an electrical grid. A plant tour will reveal countless electrical panels, electrical boxes, transformer breathers, computers and controls that are critical for its proper operation.

Just because one can't see potential harm doesn't mean one won't see the consequences, and forces such as humidity or moisture can destroy or deteriorate electronics relatively quickly.

For the folks that manage large scale power grids or depend on electronic consoles, moisture management is an everyday concern. This is where bulk desiccants for industrial and commercial applications can help.

Placed inside panels, rooms or compartments to control airborne moisture, a high-capacity desiccant or selective adsorbent such as bulk indicating silica gel are often incorporated. Bulk indicating silica gel has a strong moisture absorption capacity and both chemical and physical stability. It is also non-corrosive, non-toxic, and harmless. It can be used to protect valuables against moisture related damage by substantially lowering humidity within sealed spaces, and preventing the formation of mold, mildew and rust.


  • Beads contain blue to pink moisture indicator
  • Lowers relative humidity to approximately 35-40%
  • Prevents mold, condensation & rust
  • Remains dry when saturated with moisture
  • Reusable (can be reactivated multiple times)
  • Inert and non-toxic
  • Non-corrosive

Its affinity for water makes indicating silica gel an ideal desiccant (drying agent) in a wide range of applications from humidity control in product packaging and confined spaces (e.g. safes, closets), to tank breathers for hydraulic oil in power transformer applications, to compressed air and gas drying where visual control of moisture is required. The silica gel will turn from blue to pink as it adsorbs moisture, easily indicating the important need for reactivation or replacement.

Manufactured from sodium silicate and sulfuric acid, bulk indicating silica gel comes in the form of hard, translucent granules sometimes referred to as a gel. This bulk desiccant has a porous molecular structure that closely resembles a sponge, and has the highest capacity of any commercial desiccant for moisture adsorption capable of adsorbing 40% of its weight in water vapor at 100% humidity into its internal pores without any by-products or chemical reaction.
