The Vacu-Storr™ high vacuum storage containers (desiccators) were developed to store materials which are sensitive to dust, moisture, oxygen and other gases found in the environment. The Vacu-Storr™ is capable of pumping down to vacuum levels of 10-4 mbar. With a higher conductance valve and capable pump even 10-6 mbar is achievable. The clean design of these high-tech desiccators with soda-lime glass containers, nickel-plated aluminum cap, viton vacuum seal and metal valve with PTFE shaft seal is capable of holding a vacuum for 5 years to 0.1 bar (atmosphere). Vacuum connection for pump-down is 1/4" (6.35mm) barb fitting. Shielded with protective plastic mesh for implosion protection. Lid and mesh color may vary. Available in four sizes:

desiccant cartridge

Cartridge Desiccant

Eliminate the messy, time-consuming job of changing loose desiccant. Convenient, easy-to-handle Desiccant in a Cartridge fits into the bottom section of standard glass or plastic desiccators. The cartridge consists of a durable polyester-felt bag with a perforated Mylar® cover sealed in place. It is filled with indicating silica gel beads which change color from blue when dry to pink when moist. Saturated gel can be regenerated in a 300°F (150°C) vented oven for 3 hours or more (depending on size) until blue color returns. May be reactivated repeatedly without degradation. Individually sealed in a moisture-proof pouch.
