Drying silica gel

From: Thomas Dixon <ngvcons>
Date: Thursday, December 14, 1995
We are increasingly called upon to dry out silica gel for
showcases--typically we need to do 5 kg batches. We have found home
gas ovens not suitable and are currently using a small electric
"toaster oven". Has anyone found a suitable oven for lab use for
this purpose?
