The glove box is dual-sided and single-length with three glove ports on each side of the box. It measures 1500 mm wide, 1118 mm deep and 914 mm high (59" x 44" x 36"). The full-view windows are made of LEXAN and the gloves are made from Tekaform. One 6-outlet power strip is provided inside the glove box and front-mounted fluorescent lamps are on each side.
The stainless steel cylindrical antechamber for transferring into and out of the glove box measures 390 mm in diameter and 600 m long (15" D, 24" L). Evacuation and refill are software controlled to prevent backfill into the glove box.
Under optimal conditions, less than 1 ppm of water and oxygen are present in the glove box. This is achieved through a single purifier column and a single speed blower controlled through an automatic regeneration program.
Please refer to the owner's manual for further information.
