Hi John,

one supplier is Seika, www.seikausa.com. Check their McDry products.

Also, I'm pretty sure that a web search for "Moisture free storage units" will give you a lot of hits.

Hi, John,

Aerofeed Inc. is listed in Smtnet's Industry Directory as a manufacturer of nitrogen storage (desiccator) cabinets. You might try contacting them. They've got literature available to email you directly if you're interested.

Hi John, Aerofeed,Inc. has the "Dry box" nitrogen cabinets. 215-257-1152 and they are in PA. I purchased one last year and it has been doing a wonderful job for our operations. I use it to store BGAs and micro BGAs after baking. To reduce the cost, I use regular compressed air, and it works just fine ( RH ~ 1-3 %).

John, I have read some of the follow-up's to your question and I am having several dry-cabinets made. Each, for under $500.00. Mcdry, a subsidiary of Seika Corp. is a vendor that has a solid background with moisture-free storage units. If cost is an issue, PLAS-LABS out of Lansing, MI maybe an alternative. www.plas-labs.com Ted Pella, Inc. may be worth a shot just to keep your quotes competitive. www.tedpella.com Good Luck!

Is using a refridgerator for storage an option?

Hi! Larry, absolutely "NO". When you move the component out from the refridgerator, the moisture will condensed to the surface. The Eureka Dry Box is different, it use special desicannt in the drying module to absorb the moisture inside the box and when it reach certain limit, the unit will start to burn the desicannt and at that time, the moisture will escape from the dry module to outside the box. This opertion is continuously.

Hope that it can help you.

We gutted and rigged a rig to seep N2. Dawson's correct about using a standard frig tho.

Tuan: Interesting. How do you have the compressed air rigged to your storage box? Regulator that's just open?
