Desiccant cartridges for precision, electronic and optical equipment
Desiccant cartridges are used in sensitive instrumentation controls and in other highly sensitive optical and electronic equipment – particularly military applications – to protect against moisture, corrosion and fungi. The cartridges comply with the German Armed Forces technical delivery specifications (“Technische Lieferbedingungen”) TL4440-0007 (VG 95239), and have a NATO Stock Number (NSN).
Residual moisture which exists even in environments of extreme impermeability, as well as moisture that enters as a result of a leak, can condense through cooling, causing rusting or fungi, which is in turn particularly harmful to glass, reducing its lifespan. This is where desiccant cartridges come in.
