Thread: Questions regarding electric dry-boxes.

  1. #1

    Question Questions regarding electric dry-boxes.

    How long does it take to "dry" the air to desired humidity from raw?
    Is it humidity-sealed when the electricity is switched off daily when I go out?
    Are there any ambient noise?

    Technically, relative humidity is a function of both temperature and moisture,
    how will the dry-cabinet deal with reading when it's cool?

    Thanks for advice!

    No offense meant... but after 1,180 posts here in the forum you should have found the "Search" functions. Dry cabinets are discussed permanently and your questions were already answered in several threads within the last 2 weeks.

    Hi dRebelXT,

    Usually, you need to 'on' the dry cabinet for 24-48 h (depending on different brand) w/o anything inside for the dry cabinet to dry out the insides. After that, you can put your stuff inside. Then it will take another 12-24h (for my case) to dry down to desired RH depending on the amount of stuff inside.

    It is recommended that the dry cabinet is on 24/7 as the power consumption is very low. My cabinet has been 'on' ever since I bought it months ago. My brother's separate dry-cabinet is on for 4 years plus w/o problem. I am sure other members here have dry-cabinet on for more than 5 years at a time.

    It is not humidity sealed 100%. After you off the power, the RH will creep back up, albeit slowly.

    I can assure you there is no noise at all. You cannot hear a thing.

    Well, thats as far as my knowledge carries me.

    Cheers,

    it only consume few watts per hour, won't cause too much $$ per month even you let it run 24/7.
