Desiccator

A desiccator (also: exsiccator, from Latin exsiccare: to dry out) is a chemical laboratory device used mainly for drying solid chemical substances in preparative chemistry. A desiccator is a thick-walled vessel, usually made of glass (or more rarely plastic), which is hermetically sealed by a flat-ground lid. To ensure this closure, the ground joint is usually coated with ground joint grease. The lower part of the desiccator is filled with a drying agent and the substance to be dried is placed on a plastic or ceramic insert above the drying agent.
