Vacuum and Non-Vacuum Desiccators
Bel-Art® store critical components using desiccant and vacuum. Moisture control helps to shield materials from deterioration, and isolation is the most efficient way of preventing humidity damage. Desiccator enclosures from Silica gel desiccant adsorbs moisture from the air and can be regenerated by heat when saturated. When the airtight desiccators are in vacuum mode, moisture-laden air is completely removed from the containers, creating an oxygen- (and moisture-) free environment.
Bel-Art's vacuum desiccators are build in two pieces, secured by clamps. Air-tight storage is ensured by the sturdy materials used and the gasket that fits between the top and bottom halves. Models available in space-saving and extra-capacity sizes. Terra Universal's acrylic vacuum desiccator chambers come in convenient shapes and sizes to dry, de-gas and store liquids and small parts. Complete your experiments using this sustained 29.9" Hg vacuum.
