Vacuum Glove Box &#; Series

Cleatech&#;s Vacuum Glove Box has been designed to provide a low-pressure environment within the main chamber. With the help of a vacuum pump, air and other gases are removed from the enclosure by replacing them with nitrogen or argon gas. This creates an inert atmosphere that allows researchers to conduct experiments without the risk of contamination from reactive gases.

Vacuum atmospheres glove box are typically constructed out of acrylic, stainless steel, aluminum. Our series glove box is constructed from 1&#; thick clear acrylic sheet producing a water-tight and air-tight seal, capable of handling in. Hg negative pressure at an affordable price.

A vacuum glove box allows scientists and researchers to perform a test in a non-combustible environment with the ability to handle objects or non-harmful substances in a simulated environment. Commonly used in the manufacturing of semiconductors, spacecraft engineering, lithium battery development, material science, and chemistry settings. Any industry where a moisture-free and dust-free environment is desired.

Here is a list of other application

  • Atmospheric simulation
  • Leak testing
  • Permeability
  • Simulating deep space conditions
  • product testing/integrity
  • Vacuum distillation
  • Vacuum impregnation

We are a leading U.S. manufacturer of glove box and inert gas purification systems.

Main Uses of Laboratory Glove Boxes


Laboratory glove boxes take the form of hermetic stainless-steel enclosures with a transparent working face, handling gloves, control and regulation units, sophisticated transfer and purification systems. They allow the handling of materials and products which must not come into contact with the ambient air or propagate in the environment.


Components of a Glove Box and Their Roles


Components of a glove box play a specific role in ensuring its proper functioning:

Main Chamber

The main chamber of a laboratory glove box is the work area for the operators. All manipulations take place in this hermetically-sealed protective enclosure. It should have one to several transparent work surfaces for better visualization during handling.

Protective Gloves

The protective gloves are directly attached to the support rings located on the working face. In addition to his personal protection, the operator must use his protective gloves to handle the samples, products, materials, compounds&#; implemented.

One to Several Transfer Airlocks

A laboratory glove box should have at least one transfer airlock. High-end glove boxes have more than one. This sophisticated system is useful when products and instruments need to be introduced into the main chamber. It prevents any break in containment. On some glove boxes, it is preferable to have an inlet airlock and an outlet airlock.

Sensors and Regulators

Each project may involve different types of substances or materials. Depending on the conditions necessary for their handling, the chemical composition of the glove box can be adjusted. Pressure, temperature, etc. are adjusted by means of regulators. The humidity and oxygen levels are checked by means of sensors.

Automatic Safety Flow Rate

The presence of automatic safety flow is mandatory only on glove boxes used for personnel protection. The system automatically compensates for any pressure drop that could be due to a leak or an accidental break in containment (tearing of a glove for example), thus ensuring optimum safety. Thus the confined atmosphere cannot escape from the enclosure.

The enclosure of a laboratory glove box is completely protective and set to an air pressure lower or higher than the atmospheric pressure. Operators can carry out their tasks safely. Safety alerts are automatically triggered in case of anomalies.

You can, for example, use a laboratory glove box when you need to handle volatile, toxic or radioactive substances, pathogens, active ingredients, materials sensitive to ambient air, etc. Thanks to the transparency of the walls and the quantity of gloves or cuffs, an operator can work more comfortably.


Different Types of Laboratory Glove Boxes


The purpose of a laboratory glove box is to protect products, operators and the environment. There are two main types:

  • Containment of dangerous substances

There are laboratory glove boxes specially designed for the containment of dangerous substances, such as radioactive materials and pathogens. Its various protection components, filters, gloves, airlock and the specific operating mode offer appropriate protection to avoid the risks of external contamination.

In nuclear processes where it is necessary to protect operators from contamination or radiation, specific equipment is necessary such as filters, lead protections, lead-charged gloves. In biological or pharmaceutical processes, the enclosure allows the containment of pathogens. Adding HEPA H14 filters enhances safety.

  • Containment in an inert atmosphere

This type of laboratory glove box creates an inert atmosphere of great purity. To do this, all traces of oxygen, water and solvents are removed from the enclosure via specific integrated devices. It is also pressurized to prevent the spread of contaminants into the environment in the event of small leaks. It is used when handling under argon, nitrogen or other pure mixtures.

A minimum of training is necessary for operators who use a laboratory glove box. It is possible to add accessories to facilitate the handling of the equipment. In addition, wearing personal protection and immediate accessibility of emergency equipment should not be overlooked.

🌟 -- Glove Box - operation (Guide to Using the High Efficiency GloveBox)

A glove box consists of a sealed box with the inside accessible only by gloves. Though their uses are expanding, they are essentially utilized for two basic purposes: Protect what you work on from the environment, such as an analytic balance on a production floor, or protect you from what you work on, such as a virus. Despite the fact that most glove boxes provide a relatively simple process, different applications require different boxes.

How to change a glove on a glovebox

Office of Environmental Health and Safety

A glove box is a sealed container used to manipulate materials where a separate atmosphere is desired.  They are commonly used to protect workers from hazardous materials or to protect chemicals and materials that may be sensitive to air or water vapor. 

Glove boxes may be used under either positive or negative pressure.  Glove boxes operated under positive pressure usually contain materials sensitive to outside contaminates such as air or water vapor.  Exposure to outside contaminates can lead to degredation or a violent reaction with these compounds.  Negative pressure glove boxes are used to protect workers and are used for hazardous materials such as toxic gases or pathogens. 

Daily Inspections

When using glove boxes, perform daily inspections prior to use.   As part of your daily checklist, perform the following:

  • Check the condition of the gloves.  Look for holes, areas of discoloration representing a compromised integrity, and the connection to the exterior.
  • Inspect the condition of the window, paying special attention to the area where the window is connected to the rest of the box.
  • Perform a vacuum pump inspection and ensure that all lines are in good condition and that the oil (if applicable) has been changed recently.
  • Inspect vacuum pump exhaust oil-mist filter and ensure it is still within operating parameters.
  • If your box is equipped with a solvent scrubber and solvent delivery system, ensure that the scrubber cartridges are within operating parameters.
  • All pressure gauges and indicators are functioning and are within acceptable ranges.

Other Considerations:

  • If it is a shared glove box, assign 1 or 2 senior people in the lab to ensure that all maintenance on the box and components are up-to-date. 
  • Maintain service contracts with the manufacturer and have them perform routine maintenance on the system.
  • Avoid abruptly extending gloves into the box, this can severely stress the system and cause an overpressurization.
  • Use nitrile gloves on the glove box gloves.  This extends the life of the glove box gloves and helps to avoid cross contamination and makes cleanup easier
  • Train all individuals working in the box.  Document this training in a laboratory specific training file.
  • Ensure proper backup measures are in place for a loss of power or loss of facility nitrogen.
