Reactive materials that need to be weighed can often present a
wide range of problems. These problems can mostly be anticipated
and resolved when compiling the specification for a glove box enclosure.
Accurate weighing requires particular design attention where small
quantities of reactive powder need to be balanced. The application
of a marble slab with anti-vibration seals to the glove box, and
floor, allows for four to five figure weighing accuracy
During accurate weighing, static electricity can have a detrimental
effect on the operation with disruptive forces due to the interaction
of electrical charges between the material being weighed and the
bulk of the balance equipment and glove box shell. Our understanding
of the problems and experience of resolving static related difficulties
will circumvent this difficulty.
For large items, handling may form the greatest challenge and for
this we have a range of ready made solutions. Drum handling through
double door load lock, mechanised lifting and tipping, and overhead
travelling gantry, are a few of our system designs.
