Substrates need to be protected from contamination at all times,
and this contamination can include oxygen as well as moisture and
particulate. Integrating a vacuum coating system into a glove box
will provide an optimum environment within which to carry out manual
handling and processing of substrates.
Spin coaters requiring the same environmental conditions can similarly
be added to the same glove box or separated into another glove box,
joined with a front-loading antechamber for transfer operations.
A glove box creates a mini-environment that can be controlled to
varying degrees of purity. Gas systems can be open loop with total
loss, or circulated through gas purifiers in a closed loop. The
integration of particulate filters, either HEPA or ULPA standard
will reduce particle contamination and this can be further enhanced,
by adding laminar flow conditions. Solvents or other introduced
chemicals can be eliminated or reduced to trace levels by the inclusion
of an activated carbon trap, or cryogenic trap in the circulated
Glove Box Technology Ltd has worked with a number of specialist
Coating System manufacturers in the integration of their products
into our glove box design. We also have access to re-conditioned
systems, or customers can source and supply from their own stock
and free issue a coating system for integration.
We have a trade relationship with a spin coater company, which
produces an "industry standard" unit. However we will
readily accept a customers free issue preference in spin coater,
and integrate the model into the design.
With our range of design features and facility components, glove
boxes can be customised to suit individual site conditions, specified
process equipment and work flow patterns.
