Summary

  • Available ISO Ratings: ISO 8
  • Low cost desiccator cabinet designed for long-term, low-throughput dry storage
  • Extended Storage™ design is ideal for long-term storage that doesn't require frequent parts access
  • Optional Smart® module automatically monitors RH in cabinet for faster RH recovery and less N2 waste
  • Perfect for cleanroom, lab, or stockroom use where recovering low-humidity set-point is not critical
  • Also suitable for use with silica bead desiccant or simply for clean particle-free storage
  • Terra’s ValuLine™ ES™ Extended Storage desiccator cabinets combine low cost and strength for long-term dry storage that doesn't require rapid recovery or critical low-humidity set-points.
  • NOTE: Cabinet design not recommended for applications with frequent parts access, or those requiring fast RH recovery rates.
  • Built-in digital thermohygrometer displays internal temperature and RH to help monitor conditions.
  • Grounding is not standard on all designs, choose ESD-safe designs and static-control options to protect sensitive materials against ESD. Conforms to DOD Handbook 263, MIL-SPEC 1686 and 1772 with selection of proper accessories.
  • Choose from 2 transparent material types:
  •        Low cost acrylic
  •        ESD-safe and chemical resistant static-dissipative PVC (SD-PVC)
  • Optional Accessories:
  • Smart® humidity control module automatically monitors and displays relative humidity in the cabinet for faster set-points and improved efficiency with reduced consumption of nitrogen gas. Requires Automatic RB™ (relief/bleed) valve, sold separately.
  • Alternatively, a flowmeter and Automatic RB™ (relief/bleed) valve allow for manual control of nitrogen gas.
  • Other optional accessories sold separately: data logger, silica desiccant, removable shelves, stand, casters.
  • Cabinet Design:
  • Innovative wall fusing technology creates a rigid, durable structure for improved weight capacity and resistance to high-frequency vibrations.
  • Slotted chambers help circulate and mix dry nitrogen throughout the cabinet to minimize moisture “blind spots” and further dilute moisture present inside the cabinet.
  • Built-in shelf rack systems allow for high-capacity, organized storage (removable shelves sold separately).
  • Includes port for installing Terra flowmeter (order separately).
  • Transparent walls help quickly find items anywhere inside the cabinet.
  • Door Design:
  • Reinforced doors include exterior stainless steel plating plus stiffening bars on the inside of the doors to increase rigidity for a longer service life.
  • Cleanroom compliant design includes corrosion resistant, non-particle shedding hardware:
  •        Self-closing 316L stainless steel hinges with superior corrosion resistance help both hold open and tightly close doors.
  •        Swell latches open/close with the flick of a finger to save wrist strain. An expanding rubber bushing firmly seals doors to prevent dust and moisture from leaking in.
  • Closed-cell foam gasket around each reinforced door provides a superior protective seal to prevent air, vapor, moisture, water, and dust infiltration; resists weathering, UV oxidation, mildew and fungus.

Features and Benefits

Critical Environment Solutions

Terra's mission is to help customers in highly regulated industries transform the world with critical environment solutions that improve health, safety, performance, and yields. These environments may comply with stringent UL, ISO, IEST, ASTM and OSHA standards and local requirements.

Stainless Steel-Reinforced Doors

Stainless steel reinforcing bar provides added rigidity and durability to plastic doors.

Thermohygrometer

Displays internal temperature and relative humidity (one included on each cabinet).

Closed-Cell Door Gasket on Reinforced Door

Closed-cell door gasket maintains internal positive pressure when purged with dry gas, and stainless steel reinforcements extend door life

Durable Embedded Static-Dissipative Layers

Terra's SDPVC features bonded dissipative layers that resist abrasion. SDPVC desiccators retain their surface resistivity of 106 - 108 ohms/square indefinitely (unlike spray-on coatings that can wear off after a few years), protecting your materials against ESD damage. Further, the control of static charges eliminates particle attractions, helping maintain clean surfaces.

Smart Module with LED Display

In minutes, upgrade your ValuLine desiccator to an automatic nitrogen control system with Terra's economical Smart module.

ValuLine™ Plastic Desiccator Cabinet

Terra's nitrogen desiccator cabinets clearly surpass any manufacturer's design quality, contamination control, and availability. Easily upgrade to an automatic nitrogen control system with Terra's Smart module.

Self-Closing 316L Stainless Steel Hinges

Self-closing 316L stainless steel hinges use springs to both hold open and help tightly close doors. Stainless steel drastically extends service life and minimizes corrosion, flaking, and contamination that commonly occur with ordinary chrome-plated hinges.

Cleanroom Compliant Swell Latches

Swell latches open/close with the flick of a finger to save wrist strain. An expanding rubber bushing firmly seals doors to prevent dust and moisture from leaking in, plus eliminates corrosion, flaking, and particle contamination from chrome-plated latches.

Highest Standards For Desiccators and Electronic Components

Terra’s desiccator cabinets and RH control systems are designed and built to the highest standards required by defense and semiconductor industries for long-term reliability and protection against damage, injuries, and electrical hazards.

  • Flow Meter Helps Monitor and Control Nitrogen Gas Flow

    A flow meter is a low-cost option suitable for non-critical applications or small desiccators that do not require much inert gas. However, manual control is more prone to human error and not as efficient with the consumption of inert gas, which can lead to damaged products and high operating costs.
  • Smart Module with LED Display

    Upgrade your desiccator to an automatic nitrogen control system with Terra's economical, programmable Smart Module.
  • Laboratory Nitrogen Generator

    Terra’s Nitrogen Generators provide a continuous, reliable supply of clean, dry nitrogen up to 99% pure to eliminate dependence on bulky canisters to operate desiccators and glove boxes.
