Desiccant canisters and desiccant capsules

The new generation of desiccant capsules – AdCap®

The innovative design of AdCap® desiccant canister combines the benefits of standard desiccant capsules and containers in a single product and ensures that moisture or odors are optimally adsorbed right after filling.
No matter where the desiccant canister is situated in the container – its cardboard disk and grid structure in the desiccant capsule wall makes it your 360 degree adsorption solution.

Best adsorption and handling properties for efficient humidity control within your pharmaceutical packaging

  • Cylindrical and smooth shape of sanner's desiccant canister allows insertion speeds between 300 and 600 pieces per minute 
  • Superior squeeze stability of ADCap® desiccant canister compared to conventional canisters
  • 30% more humidity adsorption after 24 hours compared to conventional desiccant capsules
  • Reduced risk of unintentional ingestion thanks to unique grid structure of AdCap® desiccant canister
  • Non-dusting due to spherical silica gel (SG) and molecular sieve (MS) within the desiccant capsule
  • Printing of desiccant type and weight on cardboard ensures easy identification

Activated carbon and silica gel for the right atmosphere inside the package: AdCap® AC/SG desiccant canisters

Our service for your desiccant packaging

Humidity permeating into the packaging can cause compressed and film-coated tablets to dissolve prematurely, become discolored, lose their potency or develop unwanted odors.

Desiccants or activated carbon prevent these problems and enhance product safety from the first to the last tablet. We have bundled our expertise and quality in a comprehensive service: The Sanner Atmo Guard System®

To recommend the ideal amount and type of desiccant, we  take all relevant moisture ingress factors into account. We work with real product data to develop your tailored desiccant solution, which ensures cost-effectiveness and maintains the required shelf-life. Reliability is based on experience.
