Dritabs Desiccants

Thompson & Capper’s Dritabs are a range of highly effective molecular sieve tablets designed to reduce spoilage caused by atmospheric moisture.

Dritabs are carefully formulated to give optimum moisture control in even the most demanding applications.

Advantages of Dritabs include:
  • Rapid water uptake and can dry to zero humidity.
  • Ability to adsorb over 20% of tablet weight in moisture.
  • Three times more effective than silica gel (at 10% relative humidity).
  • Will absorb moisture over wider temperature range than other desiccants.
  • Non-hazardous.
  • Formulated with high quality molecular sieves and binders.
  • Available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
  • Can function as both desiccant and structural component.
  • High crush strength for fewer breakages and high integral strength.
  • Bespoke manufacturing facilities and high manufacturing precision.
  • Tabletted form provides controlled dosage and minimises handling/exposure.


Dritabs are used in all areas where protection from moisture spoilage effects is required. Such spoilage includes performance failure, corrosion, rot and biological attack.
