There are different types of silica gels which is applicable in various industries. For example, Fine porous Silica Gel is specially utilized for the impurities adsorption or separation in petrochemical industry, refining process, synthetic chemical industry, electric power plants.
Another type of the silica gel is Indicating Silica gel which has a strong moisture adsorption capacity and is widely utilized for drying and dehumidification in pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, food, clothing, leather industries. During the adsorption process, due to the hydroscopic capacity the color appearance changes obviously. The degree of saturation is visualized by a change in color.
