Industrial or process automation within a glove box environment
where gas is maintained to low oxygen and moisture levels, requires
special consideration of a range of design issues. Where that environment
is Argon, additional design difficulties may be present due to the
higher electrical conductivity and density of this gas.
Automation is normally achieved using electrical and pneumatic
power, and most proprietary components available are designed, tested
and rated for use in normal atmospheric ambient conditions. Often
these proprietary components will not measure up to their rated
life performance in the dry environment which strips out the moisture.
Argon gas alters dielectric criteria, and has considerable impact
on cooling characteristics of electric motors.
Glove Box Technology Ltd has considerable experience in the design,
manufacture and procurement of in-box equipment, and the design
and manufacture of glove box containment with gas management systems.
Gas and fluid handling systems to high and ultra high purity (semiconductor)
standards are also built into glove boxes with oxygen and moisture
Integrated designs are more dedicated, more efficient and more
