Our Optimum design places emphasis on achieving a rugged
utility glove box with a maintained inert gas environment ideal
for occasional use or general duties.
Slightly smaller in cross section at 75cm x 75cm and lighter in
weight than the R&D and Academic range, the Optimum
is designed for bench top mounting but is available optionally with
a support stand.
Modular in design and manufactured in stainless steel, the glove
box is available in its standard length of 100cm with options to
increase the length by added modules, or increase the module length
by increments of 45cm to a maximum of 280cm.
Standard features include bolted window construction, external
fluorescent light for interior lighting, and 8" glove ports.
Gas management facilities include options for closed loop recirculated
systems (either integrated end wall type or free standing), or open
loop gas purge.
Closed loop gas recirculated glove box systems will maintain better
than 1 parts per million oxygen and moisture contained environment.
Closed loop recirculated glove boxes require a double door antechamber.
Open loop gas purged systems will maintain better than 5 parts
per million oxygen and 50 parts per million moisture (average after
two weeks) consuming 10 litres of gas per minute, rising to 20 parts
per million oxygen at a gas flow rate of 3 litres per minute. (Assumes
use of high purity bottled gas direct into system). Open loop gas
purged glove boxes can be supplied with a double door antechamber
for maintaining containment, or single door only with loss of contained
environment when opened.
Glove box operational control varies, with closed
loop recirculated systems presented on a colour
touch screen, and open
loop system control consists of manual push button operation
and gas flow, with glove box pressure displayed on a compound gauge
or for higher specification systems we offer a LCD
display with push button functionality.
The Optimum glove box can be customised to suit individual
requirements and a range of applications, for laboratory, process
and industrial use.
