One such kind of material is a desiccant. Desiccants serve as a hygroscopic material or substance that can be used for inducing and sustaining a dry state. Based on the types of components, the desiccant can be of different kinds. One such kind of desiccant is clay desiccant. These desiccants are generally available in the market in packaged and ready-made forms.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 11px;" /><span style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: small;">These desiccants absorb moisture. It is generally made by the drying process of calcium bentonite. The reaction is such that it occurs naturally without the risk of any kind of hazardous reactions. These desiccants are highly efficient and effective for usage for different kinds of industrial purposes.</span><br style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 11px;" /><br style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 11px;" /><strong><span style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: small;">Features and Applications of clay type desiccant</span></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 11px;" /><span style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica; font-size: small;">Based on the purpose of usage of these useful materials, the clay type desiccants have various features and applications.
