Seika Machinery Introduces McDry Low Humidity Storage for Solar Cells

Mar 06, 2009

TORRANCE, CA � Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, introduces McDry Electronic Drying Storage Cases for solar cells.

McDry Electronic Drying Storage Cases provide low-humidity storage without the use of nitrogen. Humidity is removed from the cabinets by use of a zeolite desiccant. The desiccant is automatically recycled by the unit and does not require replacement.

McDry units come in 1 and 3 percent RH models to comply with the strict standards required for proper storage of moisture-sensitive materials requiring ultra-low humidity levels.

The performance of solar cells is sensitive to moisture because water and oxygen molecules seep past the protective plastic layer over time and degrade the organic materials that form the core. McDry cabinets will prevent moisture absorption and keep solar cells optimally dry during storage. Unlike other similar style dry boxes, McDry has a natural air flow circulation system and does not utilize a fan, which can spread contaminants throughout the cabinet.
