Storage from XDry Prevents Assembly Disasters
Las Vegas, NV — XDry Inc. has introduced a complete line of dry cabinet storage systems. The company offers dry cabinets in various standard styles and sizes that provide 5 to 50-ft3 of storage space, with an effective operating range from 0.5 percent to 50 percent RH, designed to satisfy virtually every moisture control requirement.

Preserving dimensional stability in PC boards and preventing component micro-cracking during reflow helps improve quality by adding a cost-effective level of environmental control to the raw materials used in building electronic assemblies.

Effective moisture and humidity control prevents damage from degradation, decay and decomposition of historical and everyday items for the electronics, machine vision, laboratories, digital media, optics and a wide variety of industrial applications. According to the company, engineers tend to forget about the most obvious ways of reducing storage-incurred defects — controlling the climate in which parts and boards are stored. Dry cabinets provide a consistent environment within a specific relative humidity removing moisture from components and boards. Removing moisture prevents stretch and shrink of board dimensions allowing for more accurate placement, and prevents explosive water out-gassing during the reflow process.
