Silica Gel Desiccant Is Environmentally Friendly  

Sphinx Adsorbents'
friendly silica gel.

Sphinx Adsorbents has developed an environmentally friendly indicating desiccant that contains no cobalt chloride (a heavy metal) and has a high water adsorption capacity for industrial, medical and laboratory applications in which moisture control is critical.

Sphinx indicating silica gel desiccant is low abrasion and changes color from yellow to green as it adsorbs up to 35% of its own weight in moisture.

It can be regenerated and fully reactivated when heated to 270°-320° F and has high bulk density of 49 lbs./ft.3 It can replace electronic dew point indicators and humidity indicating cards.

Bead Mill Is Alternative To Puck and Dish Mills

Retsch's MM 301 bead mill is designed to prepare small batches of hard, brittle sample to the fineness of <50 microns required for reliable x-ray florescence and x-ray diffraction results.

Grinding sets are available from 1.5-50 ml in metal and nonmetal materials to avoid undesired contamination. Typical grinding times are three minutes and less.

Compared to puck and dish mills, the MM 301 offers significant advantages, such as simultaneous grinding of two samples of up to 20 ml, a benchtop unit requiring little space and all digital controls.
