Dry Storage Desiccator

Many modern companies need areas for safe, dust-free and dry storage. Waycon dry storage cabinets can supply an easy solution for the safe dry storage of moisture sensitive products including:

Standard Applications For provision of a static dissipative, clean, dry storage, desiccating ‘mini environment’ where a cleanroom is not available
Cleanrooms For dry storage and desiccation of MSD’s within a cleanroom using facility nitrogen
Pharmaceutical & Medical Products Non cleanroom and cleanroom applications within the pharmaceutical industry that require humidity control
Electronics, including… Semiconductor
WafersIntegrated Circuits (IC’s)
Hybrid Circuits
Waffle Packs
Fibre Optics
Surface Mount Components & Assemblies
PCB manufacture
Component manufacture/ storage
Solar Cell (photovoltaic)


Drying / Warming Cabinets are suitable for drying a range of items such as glassware and instruments, mechanical components and any general purpose warming/drying applications.

These industrial grade units feature:

  • Easy clean powder coated or stainless steel body
  • Thermostat control for set temperature
  • Insulated for increased accuracy
  • Toughened glass doors
  • Fan circulation
  • C.E. compliant
  • Heated by Incoloy sheathed elements positioned in the base of the unit.


Constructed in either clear Perspex, Stainless Steel and Tempered Glass or PVC Static Dissipating Plastic Plate. Waycon dry storage Cabinets combine excellent all-round visibility, strength and a high quality finish with safe storage in dust free conditions.

Control is via a direct reading thermostat with calibrated scale and tamper proof lock. The units also have a mains switch with indicator and heat indicator.

The Cabinets feature single and multiple compartments with doors retained by quarter-turn chrome latches. Closed cell PVC gaskets ensure an airtight seal. Shelves, in acrylic or stainless steel, are equally spaced but can be supplied in alternate positions.

Dry storage Cabinets may be freestanding or an optional metal stand in a white epoxy finish can be supplied.

Non-slip rubber feet are a standard feature to prevent sideways movement. They also enable smaller Cabinets to be stacked to form storage banks.


Moisture Sensitive Devices (MSD’s) have become more widely used within industries that demand a higher level of sophistication. If these MSD’s are not stored to industry standards such as with standard IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033 then they are susceptible to damage during manufacturing. Improper storage of the MSD’s can lead to a costly reduction in yield and desiccators can offer a method of moisture removal/ control other than with baking. Alternatives for dry storage of MSD’s include;

  • Moisture Barrier Bags (MBB’s)
  • Dry Storage Boxes
  • Nitrogen Cabinets

Static Sensitive Devices can be safely stored in Stainless Steel or Static Dissipating PVC Cabinets. In these cases, or when Stainless Steel shelves are used, either conductive metal strips and/or a ground cord for connection to earth are provided.

Quarantine or security requirements are met by the availability of chrome door locks as options, fitted at the factory, to specific doors.


Our dry storage Cabinets are available in four standard sizes but the majority of our customers need Cabinets to suit their exact requirements and so special sizes and designs can be supplied to meet your needs.

Where a dry atmosphere is required, Flowmeters for N2 or Dry Air are fitted and connected by tubing to each compartment. Exhaust ports are supplied as standard or, if required, non-return valves are available.
