Stainless Steel Desiccators Provide Cleanliness, Convenience, Economy
They feature transparent front and back windows for great visibility of stored materials; select either safety glass or Static-Dissipative PVC to suit your application. The front door features a full-height hinge.
Each desiccator is also equipped with inlet and outlet ports that allow gas to be purged through the storage area; select Terra's Dual Purge™ System and Automatic RB® Valve to ensure an economical nitrogen flow that maintains a continuous positive internal pressure and locks out moisture and particles. Note: for automated gas purging and humidity control in multiple chambers, select the Series 200 Desiccator
304 Stainless Steel Stands for Desiccators
Each supports up to three 22" (559 mm)-wide Series 100 Stainless Steel Desiccators. Overall dimensions: 28"W x 67"H x 21"D (711 mm x 1702 mm x 533 mm). Height from floor: 12" (305 mm). Non-caster models include leveling feet. Each hard-rubber caster is rated for a 210-lb (95 kg). load; casters raise the stand an additional 3.5" (89 mm) off the floor.
Nitrogen Generators give you a reliable point-of-use supply of up to 99%-pure nitrogen. Eliminate the drawbacks of canisters and 3rd-party suppliers! You control volume, purity and rate; all you need is a clean compressed-air feed. Terra's three sizes of maintenance-free membrane generators meet several capacity requirements are are ideal for back-filling or continuous flow into desiccators, glove boxes, vacuum chambers and incubators.
Why is Electropolishing Critical?
Removes iron and other surface impurities that cause corrosion
Draws chromium and nickel to form a hard, protective finish
Removes irregularities (pits and burs) for an ultra-smooth surface that's easy to clean
Provides a convenient record of storage conditions! Placed in a desiccator or glovebox, this compact device accumulates humidity and temperature data at specified intervals for hours, days, weeks, even months. USB connection lets you import and display data in several formats.
Stainless Steel Desiccators Terra Universal's stainless steel desiccators are ideal for the most critical low-humidity requirements. Ideal for a host of moisture-sensitive parts, these systems maintain dry conditions down to 1%RH. A variety of control systems allow selection of a humidity set point for automated moisture control.

On-Site Nitrogen Generation: Cheaper, Easier, More Reliable Learn how on-site nitrogen generation saves money by not having to order canisters of inert gas for desiccators, glove boxes and analytical instruments. You can make your own purified nitrogen from compressed air using a sophisticated membrane module (find out how it works!).
