   a unit measuring the amount of a drying agent. One desiccant unit is the amount of the drying agent that can absorb 3 grams of water at a relative humidity of 20% and 6 grams at a relative humidity of 40%, when the temperature is between 21 °C (69.8 °F) and 25 °C (77 °F). (Different industrial standards differ slightly in the temperature specification.)
