Static & Self-Regenerating Desiccators

DACO desiccators are small, efficient air-drying and breathing devices designed for attachment to airborne instruments. During flight, changes in temperature and air pressure can cause moisture condensation that fogs optical instruments and degrades electrical systems. DACO desiccators alleviate these problems and ensure high-performing airborne equipment.

Self-regenerating desiccators are permanently installed to meet the stringent military and commercial avionics requirements.

Static desiccators are non-regenerating with a replaceable absorbent canister. They are a cost-effective alternative for removing harmful moisture from your equipment and instruments.
