Latest Generation of Ultra-low Humidity Desiccant Cabinets Debut at APEX Stand 2625


Las Vegas NV, March 4 2009 — Totech America introduces the XD Series ultra-low humidity desiccant dry cabinets from XDry at APEX 2009. Every model in the XD Series brings with it a set of standard features normally available only as options on other drying cabinets. And they are backed by the experience of Totech America, supplier of dry cabinets in the Americas for over 7 years, a distribution partner with MSD handling specialists and drying cabinet developer XDry.

All XDry XD Series cabinets sold by Totech America use synthetic Zeolite as the desiccant which is, known as a molecular sieve, used to trap moisture in the contained dry cabinet environment. The regenerative properties of the Zeolite allow the XD Series cabinets to deliver a consistent relative humidity below 0.5% without any maintenance.

Temperature and humidity levels are prominently displayed on each of Totech America's XDry cabinets as part of the flat membrane operator panel located on the front of the cabinet. Positive action, tactile buttons allow operators to set the appropriate alarm point for monitoring relative humidity from a distance. Each cabinet comes complete with stainless steel shelves, conductive glass doors, locking doors along with all surfaces coated with ESD safe paint. Larger systems include polyurethane casters for mobility on the manufacturing floor or in the stock room.

Totech America's XDry cabinets are available with N2 purge system, integrated heating units, multiple drying units to reduce recovery time and SMD component tape reel racks are a few of the options for the XD cabinets. Systems can be configured with the required options at time of order, or retrofitted in the field without modifications to the existing cabinets.
