APPLICATIONS
Gelman LabGuard Controlled Atmosphere Glove Boxes are designed to provide a high degree of protection for contamination-sensitive materials and experiments. Applications include work involving organometallic, energy cells or hydrophilic chemicals, catalyses, hemaglobin research or other procedures using oxygen-sensitive, moisture-sensitive and non-hazardous biochemical materials.

DESCRIPTION
Gelman LabGuard Controlled Atmosphere Glove Box is a totally sealed enclosure of gas-tight construction.
The Controlled Atmosphere Glove Box commonly known as “dry box” maintains a draft-free and leak-free environment so that experiments involving contamination-sensitive materials may be carried out under controlled conditions, such as in low levels of oxygen and moisture, with positive or negative pressure, or using an inert gas.

OPERATION
An effective physical barrier between the operator and the main chamber is maintained by an air-tight, neoprene gasketed viewing window.
Operations in the glove box are carried out through rubber gloves attached to large diameter glove ports, ergonomically located for greater operator arms movement.
The viewing window with the glove ports attached, is hinged along the top and may be fully opened for cleaning, loading and unloading of laboratory equipment.
The transfer chamber is equipped with an external door to the outside and an inter-chamber door to the main chamber. The inter-chamber door allows operators to introduce or remove product from the main chamber.
Manual valves with compression fittings are located on the main chamber and transfer chamber for purging and refilling of the chambers via an optional vacuum pump and inert gas.
Pressure gauges on the main chamber and transfer chamber provide instant monitoring of the pressure differential between the chambers and atmosphere.
A pressure relief valve prevents damage to the main chamber viewing window should internal pressure exceed operational limits.
The inert atmospheres within the main chamber and transfer chamber are obtained and maintained by purging and refilling of the chambers via an optional vacuum pump and inert gas.

 

OPTIONAL CONTROL
Microprocessor-controlled diagnostic system with digital display & audible alarm
