SICCO Desiccators are designed for storing or drying humidity sensitive products using silica gelGlossarysilica gelSilica gel is a colourless amorphous silicic acid with a gel-like consistency. It has a large inner surface area. It is very hygroscopic and can be used as gelling agent, filtering or absorption material and desiccant. Normally coupled with an indicator, silica gel changes colour as soon as it absorbs water; the gel remains pourable and dimensionally stable even in saturated condition. It can be regenerated on a metallic sieve or on a baking tray at approx. 90–110 °C (a microwave oven is not suitable for regeneration!)., gas filling or vacuumGlossaryvacuum The pressure of a gas in a vessel is lower than atmospheric pressure or lower than 300 mbar (the lowest possible atmospheric pressure on earth’s surface). In colloquial language, vacuum describes a free space. . The tight fitting door protects the contents from contamination from the atmosphere. The controlled environment inside the desiccators is ideal for storing reference materials, retained samples, metallographic specimen, tobacco, components of electronic products, papers, valuable cultural assets, foto equipment and DNA samples.
