Regulating and Security valves for Glove Boxes
Jacomex regulating and safety valves were originally developed for specifically nuclear applications. They have been certified in their first version by SGN (Orano Projects) for use on the reprocessing site of Cogema La Hague (Areva – Orano), Cea Cadarache and the Institute of Transuraniens (European Commission JRC Karlsruhe).
Their function as a valve: to ensure the constant automatic maintenance in vacuum in glove boxes and to guarantee safety air flow in case of sealing rupture (usually: tearing / tearing of a glove) to avoid any external contamination of the box.
Each valve is mounted and tested individually in our site in Lyon – France. A leak test certificate according to ISO 10648-2 is issued individually.
Different Types of Valves
Recognized for their qualities … responsiveness, reliability over time, safe mechanical operation in reference to the pressure of the glove boxes, they are now in operation in French and international nuclear centers: CEA Marcoule, Atalante, Valduc, IRSN, IAEA, IRMM, CEN-SCK, Framatome, MHI-JNFL Japan, CNNC China, BARC India …
Thanks to the safety they bring, the regulation and safety valves have found more and more clients in non-nuclear sectors for handling dangerous materials, where the safety of the operators and the environment can be threatened.
Thus, Jacomex regulating and safety valves will effectively guarantee the safety of installations in various fields:
process powders, weighing and repackaging of powdered powders, nanotechnologies, use of carbon nanotubes, maintenance of aeronautical parts with risk of contact with asbestos, fibers and CMR substances, cytotoxic, experiments on microorganisms and pathogenic samples…
