Glove Box with H2O & O2 Purification System and Hinged Front Window - VGB-6-LD

Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options


VGB-6-LD is a stainless steel glove box with the hinged type of front door designed for much easy loading and unloading device into the glove-box. The purification cylinder is made of BASF R3-11 Copper Catalyst and Lindy Molecular Sieve in order to achieve a low water and oxygen concentration of lower than 1 ppm, such that experiments can be conducted in an ultra-clean and highly purified gas environment. It is integrated with a vapor pressure control system, purity control system, automatic gas purity regeneration control system, and system data log recording. EQ-VGB-6 is widely used in preparing nanomaterials, Li-ion battery materials, catalysts, and metallorganics. 
NEW!! The VGB-6 glovebox system has been upgraded with the hinged type of front window with the main chamber since Dec. 2015. Such a feature enables easy transportation for larger size equipment into the glove box.

Application Notes & Warnings

  • The interconnections between the glovebox chamber and the gas purification system must be unimpeded during the purification cycles. 
  • The O2 removing rate is largely dependent on the type of purging gas used. For faster chamber purging process, Nitrogen is preferred over Argon due to its lighter mass
  • Regularly perform regeneration to maintain optimum purification efficiency. 
  • O2 sensor is consumable and its expected life-span is around one year. We supply replacement O2 sensor, please click the underline and just order the sensor.
  • The use of corrosive gases is prohibited as they will damage the water and oxygen sensors!
  • Corrosive liquid (such as LiPF6 electrolyte) must be remain sealed in a container inside the glove box. Otherwise, liquid-vapor may condense and corrode the steel chamber and purification pipeline.
  • We can connect various tube furnace with the glove box for processing air sensitive materials as pictures below
  • You may order vacuum transportation jar to deliver the air-sensitive sample in or out glove-box
