Silica gel is spherical and granular foam containing 97-100% silicon dioxide. It is available in two types self-indicating, a radiant bead – blue & orange color after saturated change to light pink and dark green. Another silica gel type is non-indicating white, when saturated it converts transparent white.

Silica gel is interconnecting with alumina and silicate, the selection of silica gel type is not important except to perform in environments, it prefers organic silica, because it is organic and environmentally free with high adsorption capacity than white.
