Industrial Glove Box - Applications and Specification

An industrial glove box is an essential piece of technical equipment for processes that require containment. It is used when products or processes need to be protected from contamination or when they pose risks to operators or the environment. Inside the glove box, the atmosphere is perfectly airtight, pure and sometimes under vacuum, which ensures processes are secure.


What are the Industrial Applications of Glove Boxes?


The industrial applications of glove boxes includes the entire mechanical or chemical process allowing the production or manufacture of products or chemical synthesis. Industrial glove boxes are used to carry out transformations. The confined enclosure means that highly sensitive products, and hazardous materials and processes do not come into contact with operators and the environment. The internal pressure is usually kept a little above or below atmospheric pressure.

There are many industrial applications for a glove box. It can, for example, be used in additive manufacturing, aeronautics, 3D printing, laser and titanium welding, petrochemicals, microelectronics, food, nuclear, etc.


Glove Box Models for the Industry


Like isolators, an industrial glove box is made using a stainless steel structure, with one or more transparent sides and transfer, regulation, control systems and handling gloves. The operators can work with maximum visibility and comfortably carry out the tasks.

There are standard industrial glove boxes on the market, but there are also manufacturers that offer custom designs. The standard models are suitable for conventional industrial processes. They can be with positive or negative pressure and meet regulatory containment requirements. For advanced industrial sectors, where processes have specific needs, tailor-made industrial glove boxes are more suitable. It is possible, with glove box experts, to review the whole project, the type of operation, the safety criteria required and all the constraints relating to the process in order to develop the appropriate solution.
