Protecting valuable humidity-sensitive items, such as reagents or electronics, is easy and fully automatic with Secador® Auto-Desiccator Cabinets. The patented, electronic desiccant regeneration module recharges the desiccant every 20 minutes. Compared to other auto-desiccators that regenerate once every 4 to 6 hours, the Secador® Auto-Desiccator quickly attains a low %rH level on start-up and consistently maintains low %rH, especially with frequent entry to the desiccator interior.
Durastar® co-polyester construction blocks 99% of UV light and resists staining, crazing and chemical attack. Amber color models reduce visible light penetration by over 50% which is perfect for storing light sensitive materials like reagents, analytical standards and investigational compounds. The automatic dehumidification and desiccant regeneration cycle operates continuously every 20 minutes while color-indicating silica gel inside the desiccant regeneration module allows quick visual confirmation of desiccant status. A large, pull down, oven style door with easy-to-view digital hygrometer maximizes access to interior space and includes a patented seal design, tab latches and security loops for a padlock or tamper-evident seals (opens right to left). Two removable, perforated shelves facilitate circulation of dry air.
