Desiccators are sealable enclosures containing desiccants used for preserving moisture-sensitive items such as cobalt chloride paper for another use. A common use for desiccators is to protect chemicals which are hygroscopic or which react with water from humidity.
The contents of desiccators are exposed to atmospheric moisture whenever the desiccators are opened. It also requires some time to achieve a low humidity. Hence, they are not appropriate for storing chemicals that react quickly or violently with atmospheric moisture such as the alkali metals; a glovebox or Schlenk-type apparatus may be more suitable for these purposes.
Desiccators are sometimes used to remove traces of water from an almost-dry sample. The lower compartment of the desiccator contains lumps of silica, freshly calcined quicklime or (not as effective) anhydrous calcium chloride to absorb water. The substance is put in the upper compartment. The ground-glass rim of the desiccator lid must be greased with a thin layer of petroleum jelly or other lubricant to ensure an airtight seal.
