Product Details

10" Vacuum Desiccator
by United Scientific

Fully autoclavable for 15 minutes at 121C, this non-vacuum desiccator features a popypropylene base with a polycarbnate dome lid. The clear molded lid allows for a crystal-clear view of the sample being dried, and features a knurled knob on the top of the dome for easy handling. Made of polypropylene, the rim of the base features an internal groove along the flange that holds a silicon rubber O-ring for a tight seal.

It is capable of holding a vacuum of up to 740mmHg for 24hrs, without any greasing. It features a 3-way polypropylene stopcock that is capable of accepting tubing of up to 1/4" inside diameter, and has a self-lubricating PTFE stopcock. The 3-way plug can be used to create or release a vacuum, or for shut-off.

Desiccators can be used, though not exclusively, for preserving moisture-sensitive items, protecting hygroscopic (water absorbing) or water-reacting chemicals, as well as removing traces of water from samples that need drying.

A desiccant (not included) such as silica, calcined quicklime or anhydrous calcium chloride can be put in the lower chamber to be used as the drying agent.
