  • Montmorillonite Clay Desiccant

    1. 1. Montmorillonite Clay Desiccant Montmorillonite Clay Desiccant • • • Montmorillonite Clay is the least expensive of all desiccants and is a naturally occurring nonhazardous mineral Montmorillonite Clay is used in most industrial applications requiring humidity control because it recharges easily and does not swell as it adsorbs water vapor. This desiccant works well at low and room temperatures, but has a low ceiling temperature. – • • • At 120º F montmorillonite clay will begin to desorb or shed the moisture it has absorbed, an important consideration for storage in hot areas. Desiccants on their own can be extremely effective, although they work better when used in combination with moisture barrier bags. Different moisture barrier bag materials come with different MVTR ratings. The most effective moisture barrier bag material has an MVTR rating of 0.02, meaning that only 0.02 grams of moisture can penetrate the material over a 24-hour period in 95 percent humidity.
