Why a Stainless-steel Glove Box?
Stainless steel glove boxes are essential for pharmaceutical manufacturing, the nuclear sector, research, and also production sectors, requiring the handling or use of sensitive or dangerous products. When processes require a clean, controlled atmosphere environment, glove boxes must be filled with argon or nitrogen. These must be kept inside the enclosure to ensure the containment of substances and materials and the maintenance of their properties.
It is good to know that stainless steel is one of the metals most commonly used in the food, medical, R&D, automotive and architectural industries. It has hygienic properties and resistance to corrosion, heat and humidity. This material also has good resistance to a wide variety of chemicals and thus allows the glove box to be easily cleaned and decontaminated.
When manufacturing stainless steel glove boxes, assembly is carried out by continuous welding. This allows a strong connection and a tight seam that are crucial features in the design of the glove box.
