Features and Benefits

Smart Desiccator Essentials


Smart Performance—and Big Savings!

Testing demonstrates the cost benefit of the SmartDesiccator's automated nitrogen control system. Our total nitrogen consumption test was first conducted on a desiccator equipped with a flowmeter, and then with a SmartDesiccator™ control system, under the conditions specified in the chart.

Result: SmartDesiccator™ uses 22% of nitrogen consumed by standard cabinet—a 78% saving!

  • Ambient Humidity: 60% RH
  • Temperature: 70°F (21° C)
  • RH Setpoint: 10% RH
  • Test Period: Achieve setpoint and then maintain it for 24 hours
  • Chamber Access: Door opened once every 30 minutes; remains open for one minute
SmartDesiccator™ (blue line on chart)
  • To achieve setpoint: 85 cubic feet (2.4 cubic meters). Required 30 minutes @ 170 CFH (4.81 m3/hr) on high flow.
  • Maintain for 24 hrs: 40 cubic feet (1.1 cubic meters)
  • Total N2 Consumed: 125 cubic feet (3.5 cubic meters)
  • Desiccator with 0 - 20 SCFH flowmeter (red line on chart)
  • To achieve setpoint: 85 cubic feet (2.4 cubic meters). Required over 4 hours @ 20 CFH (0.57 m3/hr).
    Note: Setpoint measured with a hygrometer, since this set up does not monitor humidity level.
  • Maintain for 24 hrs: 480 cubic feet (13.6 cubic meters)
  • Total N2 Consumed: 565 cubic feet (16 cubic meters)

Steel Storage Chamber Rack

Electropolished 304 stainless steel rack holds solid and/or perforated shelves to store samples inside desiccator

Automatic Relief/Bleed Valve

Terra's Automatic Relief/Bleed (RB) Valve opens up at 0.01 PSI, relieving overpressure that could damage desiccators; also works as a check valve to prevent influx of room air.

Ergonomic LiftLatches

Lifting latch mechanism minimizes stress on wrists and desiccator hinges; non-rotary motion generates no particles inside the storage area (optional locking model shown)

Reinforced Doors with Non-adhesive Gaskets

Stainless steel door frames extend desiccator life; one-piece fused gaskets are non-outgassing, will not creep or sag

Smart Module with LED Display

Smart Module with LED Display monitors current relative humidity, allows easy set-point programming for automatic low-moisture control
