A glove box is used for many applications including handling of hazardous materials by biologists, chemists, sample prep and other research, testing and lab work. The glove box provides a barrier between the user and potential contaminants.
BESPOKE GLOVE BOX
The customer had a need for a bespoke glovebox with oversized access requirements and tailored I/O's, there was not a commercial solution available to provide the size at budget or lead time that was acceptable.
Following consultations, a full requirement specification was developed to account for future work envisaged. Large access port and small/large anti-chambers were designed to allow passage of equipment and experimental equipment to be transferred into and out of the glove box. Due to the large size of the anti-chamber calculations were performed to ensure there was no significant deformation/collapse during evacuation cycles. These were validated with FEA studies.
Isolated feed-throughs were installed with redundancy to allow for further development.
Specialist 3rd party manufacturers were identified for the manufacture of the main enclosure and the machined components were optimised (DFM) for in-house manufacture.
