Many materials and chemicals are sensitive to air and require tightly controlled environments containing low levels of oxygen and humidity during manufacture or research. For labs that continually work with air sensitive chemicals, gloveboxes that maintain low oxygen and humidity levels for long periods of time are essential.
The most recent application note from Analytical Industries – “Glovebox and environmental chamber solutions” – discusses the required oxygen analysis equipment needed for this application, as well as presenting examples of their sensors and instruments which are suitable for this stringent environment.
Analytical Industries offers a range of analyzers suitable for gloveboxes which can monitor % and trace PPM oxygen. They also provide a range of glovebox accessories which enable various methods of sampling to suit users’ needs, such as the GPR-1500GB and GPR-200GB which offer up to three methods of sampling.
