Glove Box Technology Ltd design stand-alone gas purification systems
for closed loop integration into a glove box. Their unique design
provides for the total management of glove box gas purification,
glove box pressure control and antechamber conditioning.
The stand-alone gas purifier is supplied with a remote control
unit connected by a length of cable. This arrangement allows for
the gas purifier and control unit to be sited anywhere in the proximity
of the glove box. This might be under the glove box between the
support frame, under the bench for bench mounted glove boxes, or
sited remotely in another part of the laboratory, even in another
room making it ideal for clean rooms.
The recirculating gas lines are flexible stainless steel vacuum
hoses simply connected to the unit by a seal ring and clamp and
similarly connected to the glove box with our supplied adaptors,
which only requires a hole in the glove box. System gas and regeneration
gas are equally simple, with supplied reinforced hoses needing only
to be connected to their respective pressure regulators. Even your
glove box antechamber can be hooked up to the unit with the provided
The purifier remote control unit is attached to the glove box (or
any other convenient position,), and the supplied cable with end
plug is attached to the gas purifier unit.
The remote control unit is fitted with a touch screen, which provides
display of essential glove box information in graphical colour.
Four touch button keys, FUNCTION, UP, DOWN
and ESCAPE, guide the user logically through a main (full
screen) menu and submenu of options and routine, providing complete
control over the automatic system functions. User confidence is
Removal of oxygen and/or moisture from inert gas is achieved by
a unique high efficiency bypass fan system that produces high flow
at relatively low pressure so avoiding the thermal effect of compressed
gas, and consequently avoiding the need for a gas cooling system.
The gas purifiers on all three models are fitted with electro-pneumatic
isolation ball valves and dedicated end of travel limit switches
to both open and closed positions ensuring safe operation of the
fully automatic control system.
The antechamber is coupled similarly to the remote control in that
a junction box is supplied with cable and end plug, which is attached
to the gas purifier. The junction box forms the distribution point
for supplied solenoid valves and digital pressure transducer, comprising
a kit of parts with which to upgrade the antechamber. (Customers
should ascertain from GBTL the suitability of their antechamber
