  FEATURES & BENEFITS | Series 400 Desiccators
Alt Text
NitroPlex-Ready
Available NitroPlex Module automatically monitors and maintains low-RH set point to protect delicate samples while conserving N2 gas.
Stainless Steel Door Frame
Stainless steel-reinforced door frame with non-adhesive, "e-profile" gaskets ensures a long service life.
LiftLatches
Eliminates
hinge and door damage caused by the twisiting and turning and applies uniform pressure to the entire door gasket.

Electropolished SS Racks and Shevles
Perforated shelves slide on removable racks mounted to chamber interior, allowing easy parts loading/unloading.

Automatic Relief/Bleed Valve
Terra's Automated RB Valve, installed in each chamber, provides safe pressure release and prevents influx of room air

control systems. CE Declaration
  • The ideal enclosure for your most moisture-sensitive applications
  • NitroPlex-ready chamber design features all-304 stainless steel construction with static-dissipative PVC viewing windows
  • Optional NitroPlex humidity control system enhances desiccator efficiency and saves up to 78% of nitrogen costs
  • Available in pass-through designs for convenient dual-side access
  • UltraClean™ electropolished surfaces meet the most stringent particle requirements
  • Each chamber has an Automatic RB® (Relief/Bleed) Valve installed for safe release of nitrogen to prevent over-pressurization
  • Electropolished stainless steel wire racks (installed) support shelving

The Series 400 Stainless Steel Desiccator provides the optimal clean, low-humidity environment for sensitive parts.

Available in many chamber configurations, it includes front and rear static-dissipative PVC viewing windows for full visibility of stored contents. Static-dissipative PVC helps control static charges and the particles they attract (specifications). Select pass-through models for convenient dual-side access.

All models feature a plenum chamber that ensures uniform distribution of nitrogen purge gas. Stainless steel reinforced door frames extend the service life of doors and include Terra's "e"-profile, one-piece gaskets. These gaskets are applied without adhesives and will not outgas or migrate over time. Non-locking LiftLatches™ further extend cabinet service life by operating without lateral torque that strains door hinges.

NitroPlex Control System for Optimal Parts Protection
Terra fabricates these desiccators for use with the NitroPlex humidity control system, the most advanced nitrogen purge controller available. Equipped with the NitroPlex, these systems automatically regulate a nitrogen purge in order to maintain any relative humidity set point you require—down to 0% RH.

You can even establish a separate humidity set point in each desiccator chamber. The NitroPlex monitors the humidity level in each chamber independently and delivers nitrogen only where it's needed, and only for as long as needed. This high-efficiency control generally results in nitrogen savings of up to 78% compared to conventional flowmeter systems. More importantly, it ensures reliable, documented, operator-independent low moisture levels. Complete information.

For applications that don't require this multiplexed nitrogen control, select Terra's Dual Purge™ and NitroWatch® systems, which include a single humidity sensor per cabinet.

NitroPlex Humidity Control System
Desiccators equipped with the NitroPlex feature a display/sensor module and relief/bleed valve in each chamber. To order, select the part number of the desired cabinet. Then, order one NitroPlex module for each chamber.
