Tape-and-Reel Desiccators™

Standard Features

  • A Stainless Steel-Framed Doors with One-Piece Gasket
    "e"-profile gasket mechanically attached to stainless steel reinforcement frame to prevent outgassing adhesives; one-piece design won’t slough or separate
  • B Grounding Terminals
    Standard on static-dissipative PVC chambers to prevent electro-static discharge (ESD)
  • C Plenum Chamber
    Located in rear of cabinet, plenum ensures uniform flow of nitrogen gas to all chambers; minimizes moisture migration
  • D Automatic RB® Valve
    Prevents overpressure; acts as a check valve (one included per chamber)
  • E Stainless Steel Wire Racks
    Supports carrier reels of specified quantity and diameter
  • F Grounded Door Latch
    Prevents ESD damage to stored parts (standard on static-dissipative PVC cabinets)
  • G Stainless Steel Hinges
    Non-contaminating hinges contribute to a long service life under heavy use

Optional Features

  • 1 Dual Purge™ System
    Provides a variable flow of nitrogen purge gas: high to recover set point, low to conserve nitrogen
  • 2 NitroWatch® RH Controller
    Monitors internal humidity; activates a high-flow purge when RH climbs above set point
  • 3 Door Sensor Switches
    Activate high-flow purge when a door opens to recover RH set point
  • 4 Stand with Casters
    Powder-coated or 304 stainless steel; 4” or 12” high; casters available

Not Shown: Flowmeter included for manual regulation of flow rate (choose Dual Purge/NitroWatch systems for automated control); Nitrogen generator provides an uninterrupted supply of nitrogen up to 99% pure to eliminate reliance on bulky canisters.

Features & Benefits

Features and Benefits

Accommodates Popular Semiconductor Component Reels

Reel storage desiccators are designed for reels holding component carrier tape used to feed semiconductor automatic placement equipment. Storage racks securely store reels of various sizes in a nitrogen-purged, low-humidity environment.

Versatile Configurations

Tape-and-Reel desiccator cabinets include air-tight, non-contaminating seals, a complete line of standardized accessories, and the most advanced humidity control system available anywhere, as well as self-balancing nozzles that safely neutralize static charges on nonconductive surfaces.

Slide-Out Drawers

Stainless steel trays mounted on non-contaminating slides allow full access to drawer contents. Each drawer accommodates two rows of reels (standard on select Tape-and-Reel Desiccators).

Adjustable Carrier Reel Racks

304 stainless steel adjustable rack securely holds reels up to 14" (356 mm) in diameter (standard on select Tape-and-Reel Storage Desiccatos). This storage method enhances reel organization, visibility, access and safety.

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.

Static-Dissipative PVC Plating

Terra's SDPVC features bonded dissipative layers that resist abrasion. SDPVC desiccators retain their surface resistivity of 106 - 108 ohms/square indefinitely (unlike spray-on coatings that can wear off after a few years), protecting your materials against ESD damage. Further, the control of static charges eliminates particle attractions, helping maintain clean surfaces.

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

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.

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.

  • 3-inch Diameter Caster Set
    Casters are easily retrofitted for mobility. Products can be rolled out of the way when cleaning or relocated as workflow changes.
  • Dual Purge and NitroWatch
    Terra’s Dual Purge and NitroWatch relative humidity controllers maintain a low-RH set-point inside a desiccator or glove box; they provide variable purge control that ensures continuous positive pressure and eliminates nitrogen waste.
  • Nitrogen Generator
    Terra’s Nitrogen Generators provide a continuous, reliable supply of clean, dry nitrogen up to 99% pure to eliminate dependence on bulky canisters to operate desiccators and glove boxes.
  • Desiccator Cabinet Ionizing Module
    Ionizing modules are available for desiccator cabinets, glove boxes and other enclosures to ensure static-safe storage and processing (shown: ionizing unit on 2-chamber desiccator)
  • Small Powder-Coated Steel Desiccator Stand, 4"H
    Small 4"H powder-coated steel desiccator stand adjusts to fit cabinet snugly; optional casters simplify positioning and cleaning. Also available in stainless steel and 12" height.
