Desiccator storage has become critical in more and more manufacturing operations. A look at the costly effects of moisture exposure explains why.
As critical components become smaller and more sophisticated, their susceptibility to moisture damage increases.
Once absorbed by sensitive components, water creates a number of potentially disastrous conditions. Even minute traces of oxidation, the most notorious result of moisture exposure, can degrade soldering and other manufacturing processes. Because water dissolves ionic contaminants, it also alters the conductivity of the material, which in turn can degrade electrical function. Water also combines with other materials, causing harmful chemical reactions that degrade pharmaceutical samples and chemical mixtures.
Desiccators - Nitrogen-Purged Low-Humidity Storage Systems
We offer a complete line of desiccators specially configured to the requirements of the semiconductor, electronics, biopharmaceutical, medical device, and aerospace industries. Nitrogen-purged desiccators maintain low relative humidity levels, down to 0%RH. Our advanced lines of relative humidity control systems automate dry storage to maintain selected set point values automatically and with minimal nitrogen consumption. NitroWatch desiccators provide independent chamber control of humidity, reducing recovery times when doors are opened and protecting the most moisture-sensitive materials.
These turnkey systems includes a automatic nitrogen-purge control module that quickly establishes a low RH set point eliminating the need for manual control. Available in acrylic, static-dissipative PVC and stainless steel, these desiccators take seconds to install and program. Available in a wide range of sizes to suit all budgets.
Adjustable shelf plastic desiccators come in acrylic and static-dissipative PVC, in many sizes and chamber configurations from single right upto 10 chambers. Other specialized chambers are available for wafer boxes, kitting trays, SMD carrier reels, and other applications.
304 stainless steel desiccators provide an effective moisture barrier that stands up to heavy use over an extended lifetime. Select among bench top or freestanding models in many sizes and configurations.
Ideal for transferring moisture-sensitive materials from one processing area to another.
Portable desiccators are ideal as transfer storage cabinets for small parts.
These DesiTrays™ create a convenient dry storage environment inside any of our desiccator.
