Buy Rayon/Cotton/Polyester Types of Pharmaceutical Coils

Understanding Pharmaceutical Coils

Pharmaceutical coils are fine-quality fiber coils, which find use in the pharmaceutical industry safeguarding pharma products from the effects of moisture, air, dew and dust particles. The pharmaceutical coils available in the market are light weigh and approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (popularly known as USFDA). Pharmaceutical coils are very important for the pharmaceutical sector as pharma products need to be safe from moisture, oxygen and air as these can harm the products. Water vapour molecules can bring about many physical and chemical changes in pharmaceutical products. When the physical and chemical composition of the pharma items like tablets and medicines change, these changes are irreversible. This will lead to the pharmaceutical company suffering heavy losses.

Pharmaceutical coils are usually sold in three categories, namely cotton coils, rayon coils and polyester coils. These three forms of pharmaceutical coils are very popular and have a high demand from pharmaceutical companies to protect their goods from the ill-effects of air and moisture. In the market, the light weight cotton coils, rayon coils and polyester coils can be found in the range of 13 grains per yard and 25 grains per yard.

Different Types of Pharmaceutical Coils

As mentioned earlier, there are three different types of pharmaceutical coils available for sale. More details about the individual coils are given below:

1) Rayon coils: The rayon coils are designed in such a manner that they will absorb all the moisture present in the surroundings. If you have packed your pharma products along with rayon coils, you can 100% be guaranteed that the latter will take in all the vapour molecules in the atmosphere. This will keep the pharma products safe and secure till their packaging is finally opened. Rayon coils are generally available in uniform fiber lengths and are very easy to tear off. These features makes rayon coils the ideal choice for the pharmaceutical sector.

Other positive features of rayon coils, which make it suitable for the pharmaceutical industry are that it comprises of man-made fiber like cellulose. It is also biodegradable and has a moisture content of NMT 11%. This is ideal for absorbing moisture from the surroundings. The main use of rayon coils is in the bottling of tablets so that they are not affected by atmospheric humidity.

2) Cotton Coils: Cotton coils are also another widely used type of pharmaceutical desiccants. These coils are natural cotton puritan FDA approved cotton fibers. Cotton coils make use of the highest quality carolina cotton and are able to attract moisture molecules on a large scale. Just like their rayon counterparts, cotton coils are also biodegradable and thus spell good news for the environment. When the cotton coils are kept along side medicines or tablets, they ensure that a dry environment prevails inside.

3) Polyester Coils: The last type of pharmaceutical coils in use is the polyester coils. These polyester coils are usually white in color and odorless. These soft, low moisture fibers are known to contain 100% polyester fibers. Polyester coils are usually used to safeguard tablets and capsules packed in bottles from the side-effects of excess moisture. There are also USFDA approved coils like rayon and cotton.

Desiccant Canisters Keep Pharma Products Freshness Intact

What are Desiccant Canisters?

Desiccant Canisters are one of the many objects used by companies, mainly pharmaceuticals to keep their products moisture-free and fresh. Let us now take a closer look at their structure and functioning. Desiccant Canisters are designed as small cylindrical containers having active desiccating agents. These agents can be injected into the pharmaceutical bottles at high speed so that they can absorb all the humidity present in the surroundings. Desiccant Canisters are available in different shapes and sizes and also according to requirements. Their size starts from half a gram and goes up to 3 grams to adhere to different packaging conditions.

Functioning Of Desiccant Canisters Explained

Desiccant Canisters are the first preference of pharmaceutical companies around the world, which in addition to bringing all the benefits of desiccant packets, have many other superior production and maintenance advantages. 

Desiccant Canisters score high over their packet counterparts as they are hopper fed and thus can be easily replenished. Desiccant packets, on the other hand, need to be replaced and spliced to the end of the earlier roll on a regular basis. This is why the use of desiccant canisters is widely recommended. 
Another reason why pharma companies opt for desiccant canisters is that they are discrete, stout and dimensionally identical. As soon as they are placed in the feed tube, the desiccant canisters are immediately placed into each pharma package. 

Desiccant maintain the freshness of the packed pharmaceutical products by automatic, high-speed insertion into the pharma and nutraceutical bottles packaging. When they are inserted into the pharmaceutical lines, they successfully remove all the moisture from the environment, thus ensuring the freshness and long life of the pharma bottles. 

The use of  Canisters Desiccants not only keep the freshness of the products intact, it also brings down the overhead costs incurred by the pharma companies. This is because Desiccant Canisters are easily available and do not need much time and effort for preparation.  

Blue, Orange Silica Gel Packets Important for Gas Drying

Silica Gel in Drying of Gases

While Silica Gel is mostly known for removing humidity from packed spaces, it has various other uses as well. One of the important uses of Silica Gel is in the successful removal of moisture molecules from gases and liquids. Both of these are very vulnerable to moisture and are greatly affected by it. Companies working in the gas and liquid field make wide use of Silica Gel sachets to keep humidity at bay. Utmost care should be taken that there are no traces of moisture in gases/liquids as it adversely affects their use and movement from one place to another. 

All over the world, Silica Gel is the first choice to remove moisture from gas and liquid streams. This is due to two factors- 1) large surface area of the Silica Gel molecules and 2) high rate of absorption. These characteristics help Silica Gel desiccant absorb more humidity in lesser time from natural gas and various other industrial gases. Silica Gel desiccant is also widely used in the hydrocarbon recovery process and the mass dehydration of compressed air.

Blue & Orange Indicating Silica Gel in Gas Drying

Based on its ability to absorb moisture, Silica Gel is divided into different categories/grades. It can be classified into Indicating (changes colour) and Non-Indicating (no colour change). The Indicating Silica Gel, in turn, can be found in Blue, Orange, Pink colours. These change colour when they become completely saturated with moisture. Blue and Orange grades of Indicating Silica Gel are mainly used to remove moisture molecules present in air/gases. This is applicable for both the static as well as dynamic situations. The colour change in both Indicating Silica Gel types will let one know when the Silica Gel adsorbent becomes fully saturated and when it needs to be replaced.

Silica Gel Orange

Orange Indicating Silica Gel packets change into dark green and becomes colorless as well. In the first case, the Silica Gel packets change color from a very bright orange (a dry state) to a dark green ( nearing saturation). When the Orange Indicating Silica Gel packets turn completely green, then it is understood that it can no longer absorb any more moisture. 
Silica Gel Orange is known to contain iron salts and changes colour from a deep orange (dry state) to a colorless state, when all the moisture has been already absorbed. Orange Indicating Silica Gel packets are available as granules and beads.

Silica Gel Blue

Blue Indicating Silica Gel Packets contain cobalt and is sometimes considered poisonous. The Blue Indicating Silica Gel desiccant changes color from blue to pink, going from a dry state to a fully saturated state. It is available in 2 or 3-6 mm granular forms.
