Help doubt silica gel
« on: April 14, 2023, 02:25:46 PM »
1) How does the way to store moisture in the blue silica gel happen? If you store it in a saturated pink color for years at room temperature and humidity, will it crack, break down and release all the liquid water it has absorbed?

I still have a doubt: if I heat the blue silica gel spheres in the microwave oven at maximum power for 3 to 5 minutes, will the silica gel lose its original adsorption property? I don't know what maximum temperature to assume silica gel spheres and the maximum temperature of a microwave oven

As already told microwave is the wrong tool. Normally a oven is used by support of vacuum. I think in a microwave the silica gel will not touched, because the waves react on the water and get it boiled

Silica gel in spheres supports up to what temperature without damaging or losing its total chemical structure of Adsorption? What maximum temperature of microwave oven at maximum power that causes this type of damage to the spheres in 3 to 5 minutes?

As in the other Forums explained, microwave is the wrong Tool.

Does the microwave at full power for 3 to 5 minutes damage the chemical structure of the silica gel adsorption sphere and does the silica lose adsorption?this silica put in the trash

You are ignoring what you are being told, repeating the same and again and again won't help.
