Moisture-related problems in electronic assemblies and components cause post-reflow "popcorning", laminate melting and other defects. Desiccant cabinets, also known as dry boxes, have proved to be an effective solution to these issues. They not only protect but some models can also restore impaired moisture-sensitive devices (MSDs) with a combination of ultra-low humidity and mild heating temperatures. These factors also prevent damage to the heat-susceptible component enclosures -- tapes, trays and reels -- as well as plastics and films used in assemblies. The desiccant inside the cabinets absorbs trapped moisture inside and is self-replenishing.
Manncorp's advanced series of Ultra-Dry Desiccant Cabinets brings an oxidation-free drying and storage environment that meets or exceeds IPC J-STD-0338.1 and JEDEC standards for handling and storing MSDs. Their dryer-than-Sahara RH atmosphere of 5% or less is quickly achieved with Turbo Forced Convection that is standard with all Ultra-Dry Cabinets. Available sizes meet most storage requirements. To make selection easy, the cabinets are arranged to allow side-by-side comparison with pricing also included.
