A glove box can become in need of a clean up, and this may not
be easily achieved particularly where small items are scattered
over the working and storage area.
Process spillage and run-off of materials may need to be recovered
for a variety of reasons not least for Health & Safety requirements,
for example semi-precious metals.
Glove Box Technology Ltd have developed a vacuum cleaning system
for inert gas glove box use that works in much the same manner as
a domestic cleaner. That is, it has a flexible vacuum hose with
a nozzle leading to a collection bag and filter.
This system of clean up allows for the materials to be retrieved
under inert gas for recycling, examination and/or disposal under
Collected waste or recyclable materials can be placed in containers
for transfer through the antechamber. This process is particularly
useful where the materials collected are reactive or toxic.
