Labconco Conrolled Atmosphere Glove Box



Precise Controlled Atmosphere Glove Box provides a leak-tight environment for work with contamination-sensitive materials. Procedures where low levels of oxygen or moisture are important, such as work with organometallics, alternative energy cells or hydrophilic chemicals, are typical applications for these glove boxes.


  • One-piece molded, medium-density polyethylene shell 1/4" thick laminated safety glass viewing window with powder-coated steel frame and neoprene gasket
  • Space-saving inner and outer transfer chamber doors that pivot upward, are counterbalanced and equipped with quick-latches
  • Black, chemical-resistant phenolic core work surface sealed to the glove box floor
  • manual valves with 3/8" compression fittings and 3/8" hose barbs
  • Main chamber pressure gauge with readings from -5 to +5 inches of water gauge
  • Transfer chamber pressure gauge with readings from 0 to -29 inches of mercury
  • Pressure relief valve that activates at pressure/vacuum above 6 inches or below -6 inches of water gauge
  • Interior ceiling-mounted electrical duplex
  • Switches for light and innermost interior electrical receptacle
  • No detectable leaks greater than 1 x 10(-4) ml/sec when tested with a mass spectrometer while glove box is pressurized with helium at 5 inches of water gauge
  • Meets Class 1 atmosphere containment conditions for oxygen leak rates per ISO 10648-2 test method
  • Transfer chamber high vacuum sleeve and interior interlocking shelf of dry powder epoxy-coated steel.
