Oil-Dri Premium Absorbent
Weight vs. Volume: Clay absorbents have traditionally been packaged by weight, most commonly 40 lb. & 50 lb. bags. Now packaged by volume, Oil-Dri offers an equally sized bag as the competition at a lighter weight. Introducing Oil-Dri’s new 32 quart and 40 quart bags.
Bulk Density Matters: Given Oil-Dri’s low bulk density, one cubic ft. of Oil-Dri absorbent weighs far less than one cubic ft. of the competitor’s comparable clay. Here’s why
- Type of Minerals: Oil-Dri processes three unique absorbent minerals from multiple locations across the country. These minerals naturally have low bulk density due to high surface area and extensive porosity.
- Moisture Content: Extreme thermal processing drives 100% moisture from the clay, making it lighter weight with a low bulk density.
- Porosity: Hundreds of tiny air pockets within each granule carry no weight and allow for fluid retention within the clay.
More Absorbent: Even at a reduced weight, Oil-Dri Premium is more absorbent than the comparable clay competitor!
Apples to Apples: New volume packaging allows for more accurate market comparisons of like products. Oil-Dri bags are now closer in size and product fill as our competition.
