These glove boxes feature a liner of one-piece molded, medium density polyethylene and a dry powder epoxy-coated steel exterior. The chamber features a 1/4" thick laminated safety glass viewing window with powder-coated steel frame and neoprene gasket. The cutout is 26 2/5"W x 12 1/2"H, and is easily removable for loading equipment. Space-saving inner and outer transfer chamber (11" nominal ID x 12"L) doors pivot upward, and are counterbalanced and equipped with quick-latches, allowing for the use of a vacuum. Units also feature an interior ceiling mounted electrical duplex receptacle with a 5 amp maximum load, and a flourescent lamp that is easily replaceable from the top of the unit.
This 13 cubic foot interior unit has been factory tested for leakswhile pressurized, with virtually no detectable leaks. The unit meets Class I atmosphere containment conditions for oxygen leak rates. Unit contains six manual valves with 3/8" compression fittings and 3/8" hose barbs. Two valves on the main chamber and two on the transfer chamber are for purging and filling gas, and the remaining two on teh main glove box are for drying train connections. Pressure gauges on the main chamber and transfer chamber allow you to monitor and maintain your desired pressure. Controlled atmosphere glove boxes are ideal for use where low levels of oxygen or moisture are important, making these units perfect for use with organometallics, alternative energy cells or hydrophilic chemicals.
Controlled atmosphere glove boxes require a supporting base, vacuum source for purging, and inert gas for filling.
