Desiccators store moisture-sensitive samples, reagents, and items to protect against humidity and dust. They remove and keep out moisture to provide a dry atmosphere for materials such as powders, crystals, and electronic components. A typical desiccator removes moisture using desiccants, or drying agents, such as a desiccant cartridge while a vacuum desiccator attaches to a vacuum pump for faster drying.
Maintain a dry environment for storing lab samples or sensitive electronics with these containers.
Connect a vacuum hose to the inlet on these desiccators to accelerate the drying process. A stopcock controls airflow in the desiccator.
These cabinets typically have more capacity than standard desiccants and can hold larger samples. Air circulates inside the cabinet to control moisture, and perforated shelves maximize storage space and airflow.
Place these cartridges on the bottom of desiccators to absorb moisture and maintain a dry atmosphere inside the desiccator. They change colors when saturated, and saturated cartridges can be heated overnight to dry them out for reuse. For a proper fit, choose a cartridge with an outside diameter that matches the size of your desiccator plate.
