Desiccation

Desiccation is the process of removing moisture from a solid and maintaining a dry environment for materials that are sensitive to humidity. There are various types of desiccation device, each with different characteristics. 

A vacuum desiccator connects to a laboratory vacuum pump which removes moisture and air from the chamber. It is especially suited for materials that require dust-free, totally dry storage. The desiccator features a connection port for the pump and is designed to provide a tight seal while withstanding the depth of vacuum generated by the pump. 

 

 

Considerations for selecting the optimal pump include: 

 

  • Oil-free operation with excellent chemical compatibility 
  • Ability to process wet vapours 
  • Ultimate depth of vacuum
  • Flow rate in proportion to the system volume
