Requirement for Solvent Purification in Glove Box
It is necessary to carry out the purification of the solvents before their introduction in the glove box. Indeed, some organic solvents must be dried in order not to impact the purity of the atmosphere in the glove box. The risk of traces of moisture in organic solvents can be an obstacle to experiments or manipulations in the laboratory.
The purification of solvents allows the elimination of cross diffusion of solvent vapors and the recovery of anhydrous, pure, degassed and deoxygenated solvents. In addition, the solvent purifiers are mounted in standardized fireproof cabinets, which allows the safe removal of small quantities of solvents from the laboratory.
In order to be purified, flammable and harmful solvents enter a solvent purification column to remove water and oxygen. In the majority of cases, solvent purification systems are completely under inert atmosphere. The solvent must then be passed through drying materials and stored before use. This process meets the highest levels of safety.
