Summary

Prolonging the life of Lachat wavelength filters

Answer
To help prolong the life of filters they can be stored with desiccant when not in use. A desiccator containing dry rite, such as is used to store moisture sensitive chemicals, might be an option that would have more capacity than small desiccant packs or plastic bags.   Storage in an area away from the lab, when not in use, might also assist in extending lifetime (by reducing exposure to fumes/humidity).
