Flow Sciences Introduces Nitrogen Purge Glove Boxes
Nitrogen Purge Glove Boxes from Flow Sciences, Inc. allow the user to purge relative humidity or oxygen levels down to ~2%, according to the company. The enclosures are capable of protecting the process by nearly eliminating moisture or oxygen with the flow of inert gas.
Safety of operator and process is accomplished with HEPA filtration, a one way check valve and the ability to connect to a house exhaust system. The Flow Sciences design uses AGS guidelines. The glove box is designed with a 28” depth and 10” oval glove ports that allow for minimized technician arm, wrist and shoulder fatigue while maintaining a controlled environment
The Nitrogen Metering System (FS1500) is designed to conserve nitrogen. It features trending graphs that display RH%, O2 and temperature. Two adjustable flow rates are offered for high flow purge and low flow. The nitrogen saving auto shutoff activates when the set point of RH% or O2 is reached. Audio and visual alarms trigger when outside the set point range. Nitrogen Purge Glove Boxes are available in 3' and 4' widths and two exhaust options.
