Product Details

• Desiccator cabinet with gas dilution fans for fast, uniform moisture removal, down to 0%RH

• Dilution fans quickly and efficiently mix nitrogen through cabinet to reduce N2 consumption

• Eliminates moisture "blind spots" that cause large RH deviations between different chambers

• Automatic humidity control system continuously monitors user-specified RH set-point inside cabinet

• Ideal for applications that permit chambers to share the same air throughout cabinet

• IsoDry® desiccator cabinets incorporate a unique, patented nitrogen purge system to achieve faster and more uniform low-humidity conditions throughout the cabinet.

• The desiccator cabinet also includes a moisture sensor that connects to a separate automatic RH control system to maintain sub-ambient, user-specified humidity threshold down to 0% RH.

How IsoDry® System Works:

• High-purity nitrogen gas feeds into the desiccator cabinet and is mixed by built-in fans with existing air inside the cabinet.

• The gas dilution fans continuously circulate and mix dry nitrogen throughout the cabinet to eliminate moisture “blind spots” and further dilute moisture present inside the cabinet.

• The influx of nitrogen gas pressurizes the cabinet, causing moisture-laden air to be displaced and released through the automatic relief/bleed (RB) valves. This steady bleed causes the concentration of dry nitrogen gas inside the desiccator to increase until the desired RH level is reached.

• When the RH set-point is reached, the system reverts from high-flow to low-flow nitrogen gas supply to maintain the set-point and conserve nitrogen.

• When a door is opened, or when the relative humidity (RH) climbs above set-point level, the system re-activates high-flow to accelerate moisture removal.

• All chambers within the cabinet share the same air and thus share the same humidity level of the cabinet (+/- 10% RH from set point).

• Grounding is not standard on all designs, choose static-control options/designs to protect sensitive materials against ESD.

• Static-dissipative PVC (SD-PVC) design features bonded dissipative layers that resist abrasion and retain surface resistivity of 106 - 108 ohms/square indefinitely (unlike spray-on coatings that can wear off after a few years). SD-PVC also eliminates static-cling to help maintain clean surfaces.

• Conforms to DOD Handbook 263, MIL-SPEC 1686 and 1772 with selection of proper accessories.

Cabinet:

• Innovative wall fusing technology creates a rigid, durable structure for improved weight capacity and resistance to high-frequency vibrations.

• Automatic RB® (Relief/Bleed) valves on each chamber relieve excess pressure inside the cabinet without allowing outside air or contaminants inside.

• Stainless steel wire racks allow shelves to be positioned at 1” increments to accommodate different part sizes; shelves can also be removed and used as carrying trays.

Doors:

• Access doors with 304 stainless steel reinforced frames extend desiccator cabinet's service life and provide a tight seal.

• Doors include one-piece non-adhesive Santoprene® “e”-shape rubber gasket for tight seal to prevent outside air from leaking in; gaskets is non-outgassing and will not take a set or keep an impression.

• Heavy-duty lift latches prevent metal-on-metal scraping common with rotary latches; chrome-plated included standard; upgrade to all-stainless steel (304 or 316) to minimize scratching, corrosion and contamination resulting over time that can occur with chrome-plated latches.

• Optional locking lift latches also available - specify one per chamber.

• Durable 304 stainless steel hinges eliminate corrosion, flaking, and contamination that commonly occur with ordinary chrome-plated hinges.

• Order replacement door(s) to ensure uninterrupted service should a door ever be damaged and require replacement.

Requires:

• Gas dilution module requires connection to IsoDry® humidity controller for operation: either IsoDry® Dual Purge System and IsoDry® NitroWatch®, or IsoDry® Smart® Controller (order either system separately).

Includes:

• (1) RH sensor and (1) gas dilution module. Gas dilution module (24V) and sensor are pre-installed and pre-wired for quick connection with Terra’s automatic humidity control systems: DualPurge and NitroWatch®.

• (2) Stainless steel racks and (1) automatic R/B valve per chamber.

• (1) Perforated stainless steel shelf; order additional shelves separately

• Use online System Builder to select other desired shelves, gas controllers, stand and accessories.

IsoDry Explained

IsoDry Dual Purge/NitroWatch Systems

The complete IsoDry control system includes a relative humidity sensor mounted inside the chamber and a Terra's IsoDry Dual Purge and NitroWatch systems, which work in tandem to ensure fast set point recovery times (see graph above).

The Dual Purge system provides a high-volume burst of nitrogen to attain the RH set point upon system set-up. Once this set point is attained, it uses an economical low-flow purge to maintain the set point, and then activates the high-flow purge the minute a door opens to recover set point with minimal nitrogen waste. The NitroWatch provides continuous monitor/display of both measured RH and set point levels.

Status alerts built into the IsoDry Dual Purge System warn if incoming nitrogen line pressure falls below operational rates (signaling an interruption in the gas supply) or if the system remains in high-flow purge for an excessive period (signaling a door left ajar). This integrated system also provides the low-voltage power required by the IsoDry and a variable speed control for the dilution fans.

For smaller cabinets, a flowmeter kit provides an economical alternative to the automated Dual Purge/NitroWatch controller. The flowmeter kit includes a plug-in power supply for the gas mixing fans, but does not include set-point capability or RH monitoring.

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.

IsoDry Gas Dilution Module

IsoDry Gas Dilution Module enhances the relative humidity uniformity throughout the desiccator cabinet.

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.

High Caliber Hardware

Don’t be concerned about the quality, durability, and craftsmanship of your latches, ports, glides and hinges. Terra’s products are made of long lasting, cleanroom compatible, top tier hardware.

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

Gas Dilution System Ensures Uniform Humidity

IsoDry Gas Dilution Module enhances relative humidity uniformity throughout the desiccator cabinet and speeds up moisture removal after doors are closed.

Three-Chamber IsoDry Desiccator Cabinet

Available in three chamber sizes, these desiccators provide uniform gas distribution and reach humidity set-point quickly, ideal for moisture-sensitive samples; include racks for adjustable shelving.

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.

Stainless Steel Storage Racks

Stainless steel racks resist chipping and scratching from sliding or removable shelves, won't produce contaminants
