Desiccator units were designed primarily for use in small containers. They incorporate two separate
Humidity Indicator elements. The outer element monitors the
relative humidity (RH) of the container atmosphere; the center
element monitors the condition of the desiccant itself. Desiccators
are refillable by removing the end caps.
The type of desiccant, as well as the type of indicator element desired, is specified
by designating part number suffixes as shown in the chart below.
The TA364 contains about .25 units (6 grams) of desiccant. The TA365 contains
.6 units (14 grams) of desiccant. These desiccators mount into a 3/4 - 14 straight pipe thread boss or into a mounting flange, 658800.
