Desiccator Durability

Depending on how often access to the desiccator for stored parts is required, Terra may recommend a solution to withstand the appropriate level of access frequency. There are three levels of desiccator durability:


Premium Premium (for high access frequency) – Premium desiccators typically entails that the desiccator will be constructed of stainless steel and that gas purging be at a chamber-specific level rather than at the desiccator level.

Premium: stainless steel SmartDesiccator
with integrated humidity controls


enhanced Enhanced (for medium access frequency) &ndash Enhanced desiccators are constructed of plastic but have stainless steel door frames. Gas purging can be either at a chamber-level or at the desiccator level.

Enhanced: plastic Adjust-A-Shelf Desiccator
with stainless steel door frames


standard Standard (for low access frequency) &ndash Standard desiccators are constructed only of plastic and have no gas purging. Personnel usually use desiccants to keep relative humidity low in these cases.

Standard: ValuLine plastic desiccator
one (1) RB valve and one (1) flowmeter
