You may be asking yourself “What exactly is a desiccator cabinet, and why would I need one?”

The answer to the first question is easily definable;

Desiccators are sealable enclosures containing desiccants used for preserving moisture-sensitive items. A common use for desiccators is to protect chemicals or materials which are hygroscopic or which react with water from humidity.

hp_graphicThe answer to the second question is more in-depth, the use of desiccator cabinets depends solely on your needs and products. Much of today’s high-tech manufacturing requires extensive use of integrated circuits and other sensitive devices and sub assemblies. These packages are very durable but when stored in a typical manufacturing environment they become exposed to contaminates and moisture in the atmosphere causing corrosion and oxidation on the leads. The ultimate results can be poor solder contact and possible board failure.

There is your outline for needing a desiccator cabinet in your facility. Do you have sensitive products that can be easily damaged by humidity? Have you experienced your products failing inspections due to environmental damage? A desiccator cabinet would help maintain the integrity and quality of your sensitive components.

Production Automation carries only the highest quality of Dessicator Cabinets from the D.M. Semiconductor Company (DMS). DMS was established in 1963 and has a long history of servicing the electronics, defense and medical industries. Starting in 1979 DMS started producing small 1, 2 and 3 door acrylic desiccator cabinets and now manufactures, in the USA, a full line of quality desiccator cabinets.

DMS desiccator cabinets provides clear, clean moisture free storage. A mini-cleanroom isolated from the typical warehouse and manufacturing atmosphere. A cleanroom environment at a fraction of the cost. The input of nitrogen or compressed dry air into the cabinet displaces the contaminated air and provides a truly ideal clean, dry space for your components and devices. Due to reduced moisture within the cabinets, electrostatic charge becomes an issue for which DMS offers a permanent, transparent ESD coating which is applied in the manufacturing process. Grounded stainless steel bottom plates and shelving systems complete the ESD protection process.
