Drying Performance

Test procedure:

A relative humidity of 100 % is simulated in a glove box. A SICCO Gas Dosing Controller is connected during the lead in of nitrogen in order to control the gas supply. A SICCO Gas-saving Valve is connected to the outlet for aeration. In the Gas Dosing Controller, the attainable required humidity is adjusted to 10 %, the flow rate to 8 Liters / minute and the pressure reducer on the nitrogen bottle to 0,5 bar. The glove box and transfer chamber remain closed tightly until the end of the test. The curve shows the relative humidity versus time.


After approximately one hour, a relative humidity of 15 % is reached inside the glove box because of the supply of nitrogen. It is assumed that using a Gas Dosing Controller during the lead in of gas, the relative humidity decreases by 1% per minute at a flow rate of 8 Liters / minute.
