The Metal Panel Mounting Desiccators is used to protect electronics, electrical and computer equipment against corrosion, contamination, and dampness. Secondly, the metal panel mounting desiccators features a humidity indicator to monitor moisture saturation, and moisture adsorbing agent known as a desiccant can be filled in desiccators. The desiccators used can be either molecular sieves or blue-indicating silica gel. When the blue-indicating silica gel is saturated with moisture, the desiccant changes colour from blue to pink, indicating the need for replacement.
On the other hand, the molecular sieve is used to provide an ultra-low relative humidity for extremely sensitive applications where the equipment may fail to operate immediately due to water vapour condensation. Hence, the molecular sieve is ideally used for applications where equipment or enclosures are required to function in low temperature, and water vapour condensation must not occur.
