    Four space-efficient sizes support two or four standard 16-, 30- or 55-gallon bulk storage drums; low-profile loading pallets available
  • B Grounding terminals
    Safely removal of static charges to prevent electro-static discharge (ESD)
  • C Stainless Steel LiftLatches
    Ergonomic stainless steel lifting latches ensure tight seal. External operation prevents internal contamination, and multiple pressure-points enhances seal; non-outgassing elastomer gasket included
  • D Mini-Hygrothermometer
    Convenient display of internal relative humidity and temperature
  • E Stainless Steel Hinges
    Heavy-duty, non-contaminating hinges contribute to long service life
  • F Stand with Nylon Leveling Feet
    3"H built-in stainless steel stand includes non-contaminating nylon leveling feet
Optional Features
  • 1 Flowmeter
    Capped port allows addition of optional flowmeter to allow purge of clean, dry nitrogen
  • 2 Automated Nitrogen Controls: Dual Purge and NitroWatch Systems
    Removable blanking plate simplies addition of Dual Purge and NitroWatch control systems, which automatically regulate nitrogen purge to maintain low-humidity set point
  • 3 Relief/Bleed Valve
    Protects against overpressures when the cart is connected to nitrogen (closes to prevent air influx when disconnected from gas source)

Reinforced construction supports heavy bulk material drums.

Features and Benefits

Pallet; Dry Bulk Storage Drums

Place heavy canisters onto solid 304 stainless steel pallets for easier loading and unloading into/out of Terra's Humidity-Controlled Storage cabinets.

Clean and Durable Powder Coat Finish

Terra’s signature white powder coat finish provides a high quality, durable barrier to protect against corrosion, plus a clean and attractive aesthetic. The advanced heat-fused formulation exceeds ASTM and ISO paint standards to resist chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing.

Clean, Dry, and Spacious Storage for Bulky Materials

Dry bulk storage cabinet in powder-coated steel protects over-sized materials such as 55 gallon drums from moisture degradation. Cabinet includes thermohygrometer, inlet port for nitrogen feed and heavy duty hardware to create a dry, secure environment to for bulk pharmaceutical powder storage.

Non-Marking and Chemical Resistant Adjustable Nylon Feet

Cleanroom compatible non-marking feet prevent damage to cleanroom flooring. The chemical resistant Nylon plastic base provides a smooth non-abrasive surface to protect floors. Wide diameter pads provide solid leveling and support. The stainless steel threaded shaft allows for quick adjustment without tools to fix tilting or wobbling. Tightening nuts above each Nylon base help clamp and secure each foot to prevent “unwinding”.

Continuous Product Improvement

At Terra, we strive to develop and produce the highest quality products for our customers to improve health, safety, performance, and yields. Our product quality is enabled by high-grade manufacturing equipment and processes, 45 years of engineering and application expertise, and our commitment to continuously improve.

Automatic Gas-Purge Maintains Below 10% RH with 78% Less Nitrogen

Optional Smart® automatic gas-purge control toggles nitrogen inflow (binary on/off) for fast setpoint response. The system maintains below 10% RH with 78% less nitrogen than a manual flow meter, and helps minimize moisture and oxygen related degradation to optimize yields.

Stainless Steel Design Enhances Corrosion Resistance

Large gas-purge stainless steel dry cabinets provide heavy-duty cleanroom-compatible storage for bulky moisture-sensitive materials such as drums of pharmaceutical powders. The stainless steel construction enhances corrosion resistance for sterile environments that require frequent wipe-downs.

  • Universal Adjustable Equipment Base Stands

    Stainless steel or powder-coated steel, cleanroom-compliant stands easily adjust to fit industry-standard cabinets, desiccators, vacuum chambers, refrigerators, incubators and ovens. Raises equipment to ergonomic height to support disinfection and sample monitoring.
  • Relative Humidity Temperature Data Logger

    Battery-powered RH/Temperature Data Logger measures and records internal desiccator environment at specified intervals; download to a PC to meet QA/QC or regulatory requirements.
  • 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.
  • Dual Purge™ and NitroWatch™ Work Together to Fully Automate RH Control

    Terra's Dual Purge™ and NitroWatch™ operate in tandem to precisely and automatically control the flow of nitrogen and maintain a preset humidity level (from ambient to 0% ± 1.5% RH), no matter how operating conditions may change.
  • Data Logging with 113,000 Readings at User Defined Intervals

    Terra's Smart® IsoDry® Nitro-Watch™ logs RH, temp, door open/close, purge on/off, and sensor removal/attachment. The max data file size is roughly 4 MB or 113,000 readings. This is approximately 32 hours of data when logging at 1 second intervals, 2 weeks at 10 second intervals, 6 weeks at 30 second intervals, or 12 weeks at 1 minute intervals. When the system reaches the 4MB limit, data begins to wrap, overwriting oldest data with new.
  • Plug & Play Data Logging

    Plug in a USB flash drive to your Smart® IsoDry® Nitro-Watch™ to transfer data in .CSV format. No software required.
