The new generation of desiccant capsules -Sanner AdCap®

The innovative design of AdCap® combines the advantages of conventional desiccant capsules and desiccant canisters in a single product. Our desiccant capsules ensure that moisture or odors are optimally adsorbed immediately after filling. It doesn't matter where the capsule is inside the container - thanks to the cardboard disc and the lattice structure in the canister wall, AdCap® is your 360 degree moisture absorber.
