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

Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

Pneumatic Door Opener:

VGB-6-LD is a stainless steel glove box with a hinged type of front door designed for easier loading and unloading devices 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.

Application Notes & Warnings

  • The interconnections between the glovebox chamber and the gas purification system must be unimpeded during the purification cycles. 
  • The O2 removal rate is largely dependent on the type of purging gas used. For a faster chamber purging process, Nitrogen is preferred over Argon due to its lighter mass
  • Regularly perform regeneration to maintain optimum purification efficiency. 
  • The O2 sensor is consumable and its expected lifespan is around one year. We supply a replacement O2 sensor, please click the underline and order the sensor.
  • Corrosive gases are 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 furnaces with the glove box for processing air-sensitive materials 
  • You may order a vacuum transportation jar to deliver the air-sensitive sample in or out of the glove box
