NitroPlex Explained

NitroPlex: Faster Recovery Time, Increased Yields!

The NitroPlex™ Desiccator Control System provides state-of-the-art automated humidity control to guarantee the integrity of stored components.

Each microprocessor-based multiplexed sensor/display module, one installed in each desiccator chamber, enhances desiccator performance and economizes on nitrogen expenses. It contains a miniaturized moisture sensor that reads the internal humidity level within ± 2% of full scale. The LED readout displays this value or the programmable set point for that chamber. The set point is adjustable from ambient to 0% RH (the unit does not add moisture).

When the humidity climbs above the set point in any chamber, the NitroPlex automatically directs a high-flow purge of clean, dry nitrogen only to the chamber where it is needed, and only for as long as necessary to bring the humidity back below the set point value. An adjustable time delay maintains the high-flow purge for a short period of time--long enough to purge any moisture or contaminants that may have entered—and then shuts off, economizing on nitrogen use.

The Automatic RB® (Relief/Bleed) Valve, installed on each chamber, ensures that moisture and contaminants quickly exit the chamber into which they enter and do not migrate to others. It also protects the cabinet against overpressures.

Status alarms are included in each NitroPlex module to warn the user if any door is left open or if the system has been in high purge mode too long, a condition that could indicate an interruption in the gas supply.

This ultra-efficient purging system ensures that your desiccator system maintains the conditions you specify, even during periods of frequent access or very high ambient humidity. Each time a part is accessed and a door closed the system recovers the desired humidity level in a fraction of the time required by conventional systems (see related sidebar). This reduced recovery time eliminates the risk of moisture-related damage to even the most sensitive parts.

What's Your Application?

The standard NitroPlex™ system provides unsurpassed moisture control in dozens of storage applications. Temperature, gas or biological sensors expand the range of critical operations.

  • Microelectronics components, SMDs, hybrid packages
  • Storage of PCBs for rework
  • Pharmaceutical R&D studies
  • Kitting of high-precision watch components
  • Pass-through transfer of night-vision electronics
  • Lithium battery development
  • Humidity testing of cosmetics
  • Accelerated life testing of ICs
  • Animal inhalation and toxicology research
Which critical control application can you find in your facility?

Built-in Plenum Distributes Dry Gas to Each Chamber

Manual flowmeter or automated system controls nitrogen flow rates to maintain RH across entire cabinet. Built-in plenum distributes dry gas to each chamber.

Stainless Steel Door Frame

Stainless steel-reinforced door frame with non-adhesive, "e-profile" gaskets ensures a long service life; shown on Series 400 Stainless Steel NitroPlex desiccator.

High Caliber Hardware

Seemingly small details like latches, ports, glides and hinges are often overlooked or ignored by other manufacturers, and later become the point of costly recurring maintenance or equipment failure. Terra’s products are made of long lasting, cleanroom compatible, top tier hardware. Individual components are carefully designed and rigorously tested to guarantee the highest quality, durability, and craftsmanship.

Automatic RB Valve

During normal operation, it allows a continuous low-level release of gas to maintain a positive pressure. It also functions as a check valve to ensure that air and contaminants cannot enter the enclosure in the event of a momentary negative pressure.

NitroPlex™-Ready for Critical RH Control

UL-listed NitroPlex™ module automatically monitors and maintains low-RH set point to protect delicate samples while conserving nitrogen purge gas.

Stainless Steel Desiccator Cabinet with Racks and Shelving

All-stainless steel Series 400 Desiccator cabinets include stainless steel wire racks and a perforated pull-out shelf; order additional perforated or non-perforated shelves to suit storage requirements.

Desiccator Access

Single-side access features a door opposite a non-opening rear wall, often with a plenum chamber for uniform gas distribution. Vacuum desiccator access is typically via a removable top. Dual-side access lets operators on both sides access stored contents.

Remocable Stainless Steel Racks for Adjustable Shelving

Perforated shelves slide on removable racks mounted to chamber interior, allowing easy parts loading/unloading.

Doors - The First Failure Point of a Desiccator Cabinet

Terra’s stainless steel door frames eliminate the need for internal reinforcements, which create particle surfaces and compromise cleaning. Unlike other doors with glue-on anti-bow pieces, Terra’s doors use no adhesives. This eliminates particle traps, sources of outgassing—and extends the strength and service life of the desiccator.

Desiccator Plenum Chamber For Uniform Gas Distribution

Multi-chamber desiccator cabinets include a perforated plenum to minimize back fill, ensure uniform gas distribution to all chambers and increase cabinet strength

Highest Standards For Desiccators and Electronic Components

Terra’s desiccator cabinets and RH control systems are designed and built to the highest standards required by defense and semiconductor industries for long-term reliability and protection against damage, injuries, and electrical hazards.
