High Tech Manufacturing and R&D Labs
Trace moisture causes defects and failures. From wafer to IC packaging, PCB or PWB manufacturing materials, or surface mount assembly process, trace moisture will cause serious manufacturing defects and failures. These defects are results from improper storage and handling methods which could have occurred at the supplier, warehouse, shipping or the assembly process. These are especially important concerns for industries where product reliability must be tightly controlled such as automotive, defense, medical devices, aeronautic & aviation industries.
Trace moisture affects High Tech manufacturing from wafer & die banking, IC packaging, PCB, to final assembly. The following describes how moisture affects these areas and how Eureka Dry Tech’s Ultra-Low Humidity Fast Super Dryer solves these problems.
Educational Institutions and Laboratories
Electronic Desiccator with automatic and renewable desiccant by Eureka Dry Tech.
Certain chemicals in laboratories are hygroscopic and will react with moisture from humidity in the ambient environment. Laboratory samples & specimen may also need to be protected from contamination by ambient environment moisture.
Common and traditional methods for moisture control in laboratories are desiccators made with heavy glass. These types of desiccators contain silica desiccant to absorb moisture.The downside to these traditional desiccants is the lack of control of relative humidity levels. Additionally, silica desiccant must be replaced regularly in order to remain effective.
Other desiccator cabinets utilizes desiccants, nitrogen gas purge, or a combination of both desiccant and nitrogen to maintain a controlled environment. These cabinets are costly to purchase and maintain.
Eureka's electronic desiccators utilizes multi-porous molecular sieves, providing renewable and controllable desiccating capabilities. Nitrogen ( N2 ) purging is not necessary for desiccating functions. Eureka's desiccator cabinets are quiet, and consumes minimal electricity. Our electronic desiccator cabinets also comes in various sizes and shapes, allowing storage of large amounts of samples, specimen, chemicals and other moisture sensitive items in the lab.
Moisture Controlled Storage for Hygroscopic/Deliquescent Agents, Standards and Chemical
There are various types of hygroscopic materials in the lab. Any unintended exposure to moisture will affect the purity of the chemical or agent. Accuracy of the measurement will be affected since any moisture absorbed wil add to the weight. Hygroscopic material will tend to become damp and cakey when exposed to moist air. Excessive moistures in polymers will also result in unexpected affect during material processing.
Many different salts are extremely hygroscopic, such as: calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, zinc chloride, potassium carbonate, potassium phosphate, carnallite, ferric ammonium citrate, potassium hydroxide, ferric chloride, and sodium hydroxide.
Polymers used in engineering are also hygroscopic including : nylon, ABS, polycarbonate, cellulose, and Poly ( methyl methacrylate ).
Eureka Dry Tech provides stable storage in ambient temperature environment for all types of chemical materials, agents, and samples in the laboratory. With wide range of sizes & capacity and controllable relative humidity levels to <5 % RH, Eureka Dry Tech has the perfect solution to meet your storage needs. Cabinets with custom features such as nitrogen purge, HEPA filter and windowless for photosensitive materials are also available.
Precision instruments are sensitive to moisture.
Humidity and moisture are present everywhere and can affect research lab instruments such as microscopes and other analytical equipment.
Recent advances such as the fluorescence microscope in microscope technology has provided some of the most precise optical instruments ever seen in the lab. But with all optical instruments, harmful fungus lurks around to cause damage to the lenses.
In regions where humidity is high, fungus build up is common with microscopes lenses. Typically, fungi require relatively high temperature and humidity for optimal growth. However, two strands of the Aspergillus fungus that are adaptable to lower humidity levels are most common causes of lens deterioration.
Modern variety of professional lenses utilized to improve analytical performance, are coated with multi-layer film composed of a polymer material.
This layer of synthetic material provides a wealth of nutrients for fungal growth and reproduction. Optical lens instruments maintained in high humidity areas may unknowingly allow fungus & mold to cultivate.
Once on set, fungi will consume the optical lens surface film and spread on the surface of the lens, interrupting light transmission and image deterioration, until mycelium covers the entire lens.
When ambient temperature is above 10 ℃, humidity above 60 % of the environment, mold begins to cause harmful damage.
When ambient temperature is at 20-35 ℃, humidity at 75-95%, mold growth will become explosive.
Although fungi growth on glass surfaces are not attached by roots and can be wiped off, but residual corrosion marks remain and the original lens performance cannot be recovered and the lens must be replaced. Prevention is the key to effectively avoid fungal damage to optical. Fungal contamination can be minimized by reducing the humidity of the room with costly air conditioning running constantly. Or for the most economical and effective method is to store microscopes in Eureka’s dry cabinet products.
Eureka Dry Tech offer's cabinet in various sizes, shapes and with different desiccating capabilities. If our standard product isn't what you are looking for, we will custom design a cabinet to suit your humidity controlled storage needs.
High ambient humidity content can cause issues can cause severe disruption when research, analysis and development requires the purest test results. Studies have shown that water vapor in the atmosphere can cause attenuation to electromagnetic waves from low frequencies up to 2 terahertz. Atmospheric humidity changes daily with weather, seasons, fog, rain and temperature. Since it is impossible to control mother nature the only solution would be to control the humidity levels where the terahertz signal transmission occurs.
With over 20 year experience in humidity control, Eureka Dry Tech has the capability of custom designing humidity control systems specific to your needs to pair with any terahertz spectrometer systems. Allowing test results to be as pure as possible with minimal atmospheric vapor caused signal attenuation as possible. Contact us today for further details.

Firearms, ammunition, and explosives requires storage in optimal environments. When stored in a less than ideal location, humidity will be the biggest natural enemy causing serious safety consequences.
Excess moisture will cause firearms to become rusty, stock warp, mold/fungus growth and/or condensation inside rifle scopes, cause parts to stick together or cause a potential misfire. Moisture control in your gun safe or armory should be one of your top priorities as a gun owner.
Unlike heating rods that force hot, moist air into the top of the safe, our Eureka units will absorb and remove moisture while maintain corrosion and rust free environment during storage. Whether you want to display your firearms, secure it in a lockable safe, or if you have a large armory, Eureka will provide you with moisture free solutions in any shape and sizes suitable for your storage needs.
The concern with long term storage of ammunition storage is the corrosion on the shell casings. Corrosion comes from excessive moisture reacting with the brass casing or the primer making the round dangerous to fire. The key to successful storage is to avoid moisture damage.
The United States Department of Defense stores ammunition in environmentally controlled warehouses for decades. Maintain your own ammunition by ensuring the humidity surrounding the ammo is at a minimum with Eureka's moisture control products.
Dehumidifier may be useful, however, it is unlikely to fit inside a gun safe to protect your weapons. Desiccant packets are considerable options, however, when the packets are left unattended with the ammo to soak up moisture, it could end up causing more harm than good.
Eureka will provide you with fully automatic, moisture controlled storage for all of your weapons, firearms, and accessories. Eliminating constant maintenance and provide worry free storage for your armory.
Any moisture presence in explosives is highly undesirable since it reduces the sensitivity, strength, and velocity of detonation of the explosive.
Moisture affects explosives adversely by acting as an inert material that absorbs heat when vaporized. By acting as a solvent medium, it can, and will cause undesired chemical reactions. Sensitivity, strength, and velocity of detonation are effected by inert materials that reduce the continuity of the explosive mass.
Explosives are reacts considerably different from one another as to the presence of water.
Explosives based on ammonium nitrate have little or no water resistance due to the reaction between ammonium nitrate and water, which liberates ammonia, nitrogen dioxide and hydrogen peroxide. In addition, ammonium nitrate is hygroscopic, susceptible to moisture absorption, causing the above concerns.
Powder explosives are also extremely sensitive to humidity. Depending on its chemical nature, relative humidity in storage environment will affect the moisture content of powders and will inhibit or promote the explosives ignitability and explosion strength. These undesirable influences are sometimes very strong and lead to explosion risks higher than for the dry powder.
Eureka's humidity control cabinets will provide optimal environments to maintain integrity and desired effects of explosive material.
Military agencies all over the world owns the most complicated and sensitive technology. These technology requires strict control environment in development, manufacturing and storage to maintain its reliability and performance. Without proper moisture control, field reliability will become an issue causing serious catastrophe. Military grade weaponry and devices costs large sums of tax dollars for the government to develop, purchase, or maintain each year. All for the protection its citizens. But what is protecting these technology from the invisible enemy floating in the air? Eureka's products has provided millions of users moisture protection and proven its capability in providing moisture damage protection for these sensitive equipment and devices.
Home and Living
Mold is a fungus that thrives in environments of 60% RH or higher.
Mold is a fungus that thrives in environments of 60% RH or higher. Fungus organisms can attach to clothes and is stubbornly difficult to remove. Even if the surface is clean, mold spores will be waiting in the wings for the right conditions to develop.
The fungus visible to the naked eye will not necessary erode your precious clothing. It is the mold floating in the air that people should be concerned of. These spores not only will release allergens, trigger allergies, asthma, and some highly toxic mold, but it will cause serious lung disease, and even death.
Recently, the Taiwan Association of Asthma Health Education published a research indicating that 31% of patients with allergic asthma are allergic to mold. Another report made by Taichung Zhongshan School of Medicine also found that, up to 67.8% of patients with allergic rhinitis at least one type of mold is responsible for allergic reaction. Hot and humid climates are ideal for fungal blooms.
What are your options to prevent mold and fungus in your living environment?
Household items :
Things such as cameras, consumer electronics, food, medication, and many other valuables, shall be maintained in a protective environment against humidity.
