    Dri-Can® Reusable Desiccating Containers protect all types of articles from deterioration, rust, corrosion, mold, mildew, and other damage caused by moisture or high humidity. Simply place a Dri-Can Desiccating Container together with the article to be protected in a tightly closed or sealed moisture resistant container. Dri-Can Desiccating Container will rapidly and actively remove moisture and maintain dryness of the surrounding air to protect against moisture damage. Perfect for use inside Display cases, safes, gun safes, document boxes, archival storage, and more. 

    When the desiccant turns pink, it indicates that the saturation point has been reached. Regeneration can be achieved by microwave or conventional oven.

    • Conventional Oven - Heat Dri-Can Desiccating Container in vented oven at 149°C (300°F) for three hours.
    • Microwave Oven - stand Dri-Can Desiccating Container on its side - Heat it the in microwave on high (using a 900 watt microwave) in 3 minute intervals until beads turn blue. Time may vary depending on wattage of the microwave used to regenerate.

    Dri-can can be renewed almost indefinitely, typically lasting 10 years or more with care. 

    *CAUTION: Allow sufficient cooling before removing Dri-Can Desiccating Container from an oven or microwave to reduce risk of personal injury. Damage to desiccant may occur in microwave ovens over 900 watts or from temperatures above 163°C (325°F). Under extreme humid conditions, desiccant may achieve rapid saturation, which reduces absorption capacity. 

    Allow sufficient space between the Dri-Can Desiccating Container's openings in the microwave to let steam vent away from the Dri-Can Desiccating Container.
