The Desiccant Dehumidifiers are designed for the static absorption of moisture in closed containers of up to 6 cubic feet in volume. Made with our high-quality Drierite desiccant, it meets the demand for a convenient, safe and efficient drying unit for the analytical balance or other small closed compartments, such as reagent storage cabinets, desiccators, and safes.
The Desiccant Dehumidifier works well due to its ability to be easily handled. Instead of spreading desiccant at the bottom of your desiccator or drying chamber, simply place the Desiccant Dehumidifier inside of an air-tight container and place your harvest anywhere in the chamber. Once they are fully dried, it’s easy to regenerate or take out quickly. No need for messy dust or clean up.
The Desiccant Dehumidifier also comes with a relative humidity card. The relative humidity card changes color when the moisture content rises to 10-60% RH. The card has 6 spots corresponding to 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60% RH that change color individually when the moisture content reaches the indicated level. The card returns to blue when placed in a dry environment.
The Desiccant Dehumidifier may be regenerated by placing the entire unit in an oven at 220C or 425F for one hour. Do not place the relative humidity card in the oven, only inside of your drying chamber. The use of a relative humidity card in conjunction with the Desiccant Dehumidifier will signal the need for regeneration.
