Multisorb Technologies, Inc: Multiform™ Desiccant Tablets
Multisorb has introduced a greatly expanded line of its popular Multiform™ Tablets for use in a wide variety of applications including medical diagnostic, pharmaceutical and electronics packaging.
Multisorb's Multiform Tablets are now available in a wide range of shapes with molecular sieve silica gel indicating silica gel or activated carbon desiccant media to meet specific application needs.
Multiform Tablets are the ideal desiccant solution when no other sorbent will fit. Multiform Tablets can take the shape of rings cups ferrules bushings sleeves and more to act as a mechanical component for the product or packaging being protected.
Multiform Tablets have several distinct advantages for your packaging:
* Variety of shapes or sizes - as small as 0.050" O.D. or 0.050" I.D.
* Can act as mechanical components
* Ideal for applications where space is restricted
* Superior strength and durability
Typical applications include:
* Electronic equipment
* Medical diagnostic kits
* Optical instruments
Multiform Tablets are manufactured with pure sorbent materials and high quality bonding agents to eliminate contaminants.
High strength eliminates breakage
Breakage and loss during shipment are minimized because of the exceptional crush strength of Multiform Tablets.
Close tolerance for remarkable precision
Manufactured to a tolerance of less than .003 inches Multiform Tablets can be mass produced in a wide variety of sizes and shapes therefore the most effective moisture control at the lowest possible cost is achieved.
Mini Multiform Tablets
Mini Multiform Tablets provide a superior alternative to molecular sieve beads for medical diagnostic and other packaging applications. Unlike molecular sieve beads Skavenger Mini Multiforms are more uniform in size and shape resulting in a more consistent adsorption rate and capacity and better operation in automated feed systems. The mini Multiforms can be surface treated to control adsorption rates and potentially reduce dusting.
Silica Gel Multiform Tablets
Silica Gel Multiform Tablets provide the versatility of a Multiform Tablet with FDA acceptable silica gel for use in a wide variety of applications including medical diagnostic and pharmaceutical packaging. Silica Gel Multiform Tablets can adsorb up to 30% of their weight for efficient long-lasting moisture control and extended product shelf life.
Blended Multiform Tablets
Blended Multiform Tablets for pharmaceutical medical diagnostic and electronics packaging combine silica gel and activated carbon in a variety of shapes.
Molecular Sieve Multiform Tablets
Molecular Sieve Multiform Tablets provide superior moisture control at low relative humidities. Ideal for medical diagnostics and electronic product packaging.
Multisorb Technologies practices a policy of continuous improvement therefore we reserve the right to discontinue or change specifications designs or materials without notice consistent with sound engineering principles and modern practices.
