  Where I work we receive new power supplies from
overseas that have 2" X 2 1/2" plastic bags of "Humi
Dri" silica gel in the boxes. I have been saving these
for use with my meteorites when the boxes are thrown
away but do not really know how "dry" the silica gel
bags are when I get them.
   The plastic bags are clear with pinholes and have
clear and pink colored beads in them.
   Would any of you know a temperature/time these
could be safely dried at to insure they are good? I am
concerned of the heat affecting the plastic bag the
beads are in.
   Thanks for helping me.
