Slice Engineering: Filament Drying DesiccantSKU: 3D5014
- Activated alumina desiccant is 10x more powerful than comparable silica gel, and is non-toxic!
- Creates enough of a relative humidity (Rh) gradient to absorb both surface moisture and water particles captured inside the filament
- Stainless steel canister is perfectly sized to fit in the center of your filament spool
- Desiccant is infinitely rechargeable in the stainless steel container
- Made in USA!
To use simply remove the outer shrink wrap and pop off the cap, then insert the canister into the center of your filament spool. Store the spool in an airtight container and watch the humidity drop! More information can be found here.
NOTE: Desiccants work by absorbing moisture in their surroundings. The Filament Drying Desiccant is super good at this job, but even it will get saturated with water molecules eventually. To recharge it, simply toss the whole canister into an oven at 200 °C or more for 2 hours to remove the water. DO NOT MICROWAVE.
