The TA352 Indicating Desiccator combines our TA348 Humidity Indicator with a porous plastic desiccant cartridge. The increased surface area provided by the porous plastic cartridge increases moisture adsorption rates when compared to a desiccator with an aluminum cartridge
Various cartridge tube lengths from 1" up to 9" (or in some cases more) can be provided to meet specific adsorption or space requirements. Each inch of cartridge contains approximately 5 grams of desiccant. The condition of the desiccant is monitored by the humidity indicator card. Assemblies can be supplied with either silica gel or molecular sieve desiccant, and with a variety of different humidity indicator cards.
Maximum Internal Pressure: 10 psi
RFI/EMI Shielding is optional. Also available with our TA356 Humidity Indicator as a TA366.
This desiccator is intended to mount in a threaded boss (3/4-14 straight pipe thread). If your container wall is too thin to support a threaded boss, this desiccator may be mounted in a mounting flange, 658800.
Specify the type of desiccant, cartridge length (shown as nominal length "A" in the drawing below), and humidity indicator card in the part number. For example, TA352-MS4-123P is a TA352 desiccator with a 4"-long cartridge filled with molecular sieve and fitted with a 10%-20%-30% pie sector humidity indicator card; TA352-SG2.5-40 is a TA352 desiccator with a 2.5”-long cartridge filled with silica gel and fitted with a 40% humidity indicator card.
NOTE: Replacement cartridges can be ordered by designating “RC”, desiccant type, and cartridge length or may be refilled. For instance, the replacement cartridges for the desiccators listed in the previous paragraph are TA366-RC-MS4 and TA366-RC-SG2.5.
The TA352 Indicating Desiccator is appropriate for use on NEMA 1, 2, 3, 3R, 3S, 4, 5, 6, 12, 12K, and 13 enclosures, as well as I66/IP67 enclosures. This item may also be appropriate for use on other NEMA or IP enclosures, depending upon the application. Customized versions available upon request.
