Labconco Conrolled Atmosphere Glove Box

 

Overview:

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.

Features:

  • 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.
  • Pressure relief valve vent
  • 4" nominal diameter dry powder epoxy-coated steel superstructure
  • 22 watt fluorescent lamp
  • Main chamber interior dimensions of 33.5" w x 27.5" d
  • Transfer chamber dimensions of 11" nominal ID x 12" long.
