Desiccator Cabinets

Desiccator Cabinets

Desiccator cabinets, or desiccators, are sealable enclosures that contain desiccants or nitrogen gas. Desiccators are used to prevent reactions between moisture-sensitive materials and atmospheric humidity. Clean Air Products designs and manufactures a full line of desiccator storage cabinets to meet your needs. Or, we can provide customized desiccators that are tailored to your specifications.

Clean Air Products’ CAP19s Desiccator Cabinets

Clean Air Products’  CAP19S desiccator cabinets are designed to provide sealed compartments to contain parts in a dry or nitrogen storage environment. These desiccators give users a sealed storage area that can be purged, creating a controlled environment for long-term storage of parts or materials that would degrade if left in the ambient atmosphere.

Durable Stainless Steel Construction 

Constructed with heavy gauge stainless steel shells with a stainless steel divider between each compartment, our standard desiccator cabinets are far more durable and long-lasting than acrylic cabinets. This robust construction also makes our desiccator cabinets suitable for heavy storage loads.
Each compartment is completely sealed, with clear epoxy, to form a pressurized storage space. Compartments feature hinged, clear acrylic doors with stainless steel frames and cam-action, over-center latches. Continuous hinges and PVC closed-cell gaskets help maintain pressurization. Optional fixed or adjustable shelves can be installed in each compartment.

Back panels are also constructed of stainless steel, and are welded and sealed to the back of the cabinet. Back panels can be modified to allow attachment of other equipment or a second set of doors, if needed. Clear acrylic back panels are also available upon request.
All welds are ground and finished, and then sealed with clear epoxy sealant to create tightly sealed compartments for reliable pressurization.

Conductive Materials Reduce Contamination & Neutralize Static Charges

The stainless steel shells of our standard desiccator storage cabinets are conductive and will not hold a charge. This reduces or eliminates the buildup of dirt and other contaminants that is common with acrylic cabinets. The stainless steel exterior also shields the interior from static charges, creating a Faraday cage-like effect in which the conducting material neutralizes static charges inside the cabinet.
When grounded, our stainless steel desiccator cabinets can automatically neutralize a static charge on an operator as soon as they touch the door handle. With a conductive stainless steel exterior and shelves, stored parts and materials are in constant contact with an electrically-neutral surface. This protects sensitive parts against static charge and reduces contamination caused by static attraction.
