Desiccant User's Guide

The desiccant is a critical part of the Dry & Store conditioning process, because it captures the moisture released during the 8-hour conditioning cycle. Without a desiccant, moisture would simply re-settle on and in the hearing aids at the end of the cycle. In fact, the desiccant is considered so important that the Professional model was designed with a desiccant detection system. Without a Dry-Brik in place, the Professional model simply will not start.

Dri Brik II, the next generation of Dry & Store desiccants.  
In development for over two years, the new desiccant product contains a more aggressive sorbent with much greater moisture-adsorbing capacity, packaged in an attractive, molded, disposable container. Dry-Brik II is compatible with all Dry & Store models.

Dry-Brik II features a novel timer called Timestrip®. Once activated by the user, a thin red line lengthens each day, and when the timer window is completely red (2 months), the depleted Dry-Brik should be replaced with a newly-activated one. The Timestrip has been custom-designed for the temperature range of the Dry & Store product line, making color-changing cards and crystals unnecessary.
Dry-Brik II

To use, first peel off the white foil label.
This uncovers tiny holes in the container through which the moisture will enter the container. The container is filled with a powerful desiccant called molecular sieve, which captures both moisture and odor.

Next, activate the Timer by pressing the bubble in the middle of the Timestrip.

A thin red line will start to progress across the Timestrip.

Note: The red line moves more quickly during the first few weeks.
Don't worry, it slows down, so that it reaches the end in two months. Be assured that you can use the new Dry-Brik II for two months, even in the most humid conditions. The molecular sieve has plenty of capacity.
At the end of two months, the red line will reach the end of the Timestrip, reminding you that it's time to replace your Dry-Brik II. Discard the used Dry-Brik in your household trash; no special handling required.
