No is the short answer, arbitrarily storing your MSD’s in any desiccant cabinet, dry box, N2 (Nitrogen) cabinet, hot air box, or any other dehumidification device will not on its own satisfy IPC J-STD-033. It will not automatically ‘Stop the clock’ However, the implementation and correct use (calculated storage duration based upon floor exposure, etc.) of a desiccant dry cabinet capable of maintaining less than 5% RH (such as an X Dry Cabinet), is a crucial part of a strong MSD control program.
