no need to do all that.
can buy ready made ECO made in Taiwan packs very cheap
these have silica gel inside a plastic case with built in electrical plugs
when the gel is red with moisture
just plug into any ac outlet for about 5 hours
it will dry out turn blue
you can return it to the container with photo stuff
disadvantage is you cannot control exact RH% as in a dry box
Hi all, I tried to dry my silica gel with a small frying pan on the stove on low fire...it did turn into a purplish hue from original pink but 80% of the gel turned milky white! Anybody come across this and is it still reusable? thanks!
I was pondering about that.. I normally get some silica gel in my camera bag when I travel.. Instead of heating in the oven or frying it, can I put it into the dry-cabi to recycle? Does it really work?
put inside the dry box to dry it again... time varies...
