Silica gel

Silica gel as an efficient desiccant: NECA|sil®

NECA|sil® is the generic term for a highly efficient range of adsorbents.

Silica gel is a hydrophilic desiccant used in many technical fields that effectively removes even the slightest traces of moisture from gases or gas spaces.

Among others, we offer BASF's Sorbead® Air range, a high-performance adsorbent for the dehydration of technical gases and air. These are aluminium silicate gels in the form of hard, spherical beads. Sorbead® Air adsorbents can reduce operating costs for most applications primarily because they have a longer lifetime than most other adsorbents.
