Laboratory Glove Box for Inert Atmosphere Processing and Chemistry

Create low-cost nitrogen or argon environments for the processing of air sensitive chemicals


Ossila Laboratory Glove Box on a lab bench

The low-price Ossila Laboratory Glove Box can quickly achieve, and easily maintain, a low oxygen and moisture environment. It is suitable for almost any lab and will make the handling, processing, and storage of air sensitive samples simple and convenient.

Using nitrogen or argon gas, you can consistently achieve oxygen levels below 0.5% and water levels below 0.75% relative humidity. With a leak rate of less than 0.25% volume per hour, the system maintains a steady environment for extended periods of time.

Our lab glove box is constructed from high quality, low ingress materials such as steel and glass. The universal feedthroughs enable you to integrate power, vacuums, and more. Plus, the portable benchtop design is suitable for all laboratories.

Built for Every Laboratory


Glove box interface display

Monitor Internal Conditions

We have equipped our lab glove box with precision sensor boards. Each sensor board supplies high accuracy readings and constant feedback to allow you to closely control the internal environment. These allow you to track real-time oxygen, moisture, pressure, and temperature levels.

Glove box antechamber

Secure Access through Antechamber

Using the antechamber, you can easily transfer materials and accessories in and out of the main chamber without compromising the internal conditions. Antechamber data is always displayed to minimize the chance of accidents, and ensure a secure environment is maintained.

Glove box accessories

High Quality Materials

Built to last, the solid construction and premium materials will withstand frequent long-term use in a busy lab. Grade 304 stainless steel, 6 mm hardened glass, and butyl rubber gloves ensure ultra-low moisture and oxygen ingress rates. The system is compatible with a range of materials and is suitable for many applications.

System configuration display

Automated Purging

The system maintains an internal environment in line with custom set points for oxygen, moisture, and overpressure. Even when you are away from the lab, your chemicals, materials, and samples are safe. If the sensors measure levels above the maximum set point, an automatic purge keeps a steady, inert atmosphere.

Inert gas canisters

Cheap to Run

With a low price tag and operational costs, you can conduct inert atmosphere processing without the huge start-up investment or maintenance costs. Low ingress rates and a compact volume significantly reduce the amount of gas needed in the system. Compared to larger systems, our lab glove boxes use significantly less inert gas.

Glove box feedthrough

Universal Feedthroughs

Expand the range of experiments that are possible with universal feedthroughs. With two universal KF 40 flange feedthroughs, you can incorporate pass-throughs for power, communication lines, and vacuums. Use the universal feedthroughs to power your spin coater, syringe pump, or other equipment.

Glove box control panel menu

Easy-To-Use Software

Integrated software guarantees a reliable atmosphere over extended periods of time. The simple interface helps you customize and monitor the internal environment. The screen displays if the atmosphere is inert, if the antechamber is safe to open, and if the system is still running at the desired overpressure.

Ossila Glove Box Using the Ossila Glove Box Glove Box

 

Cost-Effective Automatic Purging


The Ossila Laboratory Glove Box includes specially designed purge cycles and leak tests to give you extensive control of the glove box environment with minimum effort.

Automated purging symbol

Automated Purging

When the purging system is active, the glove box will purge as needed. Effectively maintaining low levels of oxygen and water, without excessive use of inert gas, optimizes running costs.

Leak test symbol

Leak Test

Quickly identify and address issues or leaks using the pre-programmed leak test. By monitoring the internal pressure, this feature accurately determines the leak rate of the main chamber.

Quick purge symbol

Quick Purge

Circulate fresh gas for a short period of time with the quick purge option. This function effectively maintains a clean and pristine environment even when monitored levels remain unchanged. This is especially crucial when working with potent solvents.

Inital purge symbol

Initial Purge

Achieve your desired moisture, oxygen, and pressure levels promptly with the initial purge function. Upon installation or significant exposure to the external environment, this will quickly stabilize internal conditions within 24 hours.

Circulation purge symbol

Circulation Purge

Your glove box will conduct a short circulation purge once a day, in order to keep the system fresh. The time of this purge is easily customized using the built-in software.

Antechamber cycle symbol

Antechamber Cycle

The built-in antechamber cycle means you can start an antechamber purge with the touch of a button. Bringing materials into or out of the glove box is made safe and simple.

Glove Box Leaks Glove Box Leaks

Inert atmosphere glove boxes run at an overpressure, so if the leak is small, the glove box may still be able to maintain the integrity of the internal atmosphere. However, during this time, the glove box will use a much larger amount of inert gas than normal as the overpressure in the glove box will result in a flow of gas from the inside of the system to the outside.

Why is the glove box made from grade 304 stainless steel?

One of the main causes of atmospheric contamination after leaks and outgassing (from the contents of the glove box) is the ingression of water and oxygen through the physical structure of the glove box itself. Lightweight materials like plastic are highly permeable, but steel behaves as a near "perfect barrier" for both oxygen and moisture.

We tested a range of different materials while designing the Ossila Glove Box. The materials we selected were chosen for their low ingress rates, excellent chemical resistance, and robustness. A steel construction with a hardened glass window dramatically reduces the amount of inert gas that you will need to use to maintain the internal atmosphere over extended periods of time.

What ISO leak rate class is the Ossila Glove Box?

The Ossila Glove Box is a class II glove box.

Glove box leaks are inevitable, but the design of the glove box can reduce the extent to which this occurs. Every glove box is built to a specified leak rate, usually below 1% of the total volume per hour. For an inert atmosphere laboratory glove box, a leak rate of between 0.05 to 0.5% of box volume per hour is sufficiently low.

Class I glove boxes have a leak rate of less than 0.05% per hour, class II glove boxes like the Ossila Glove Box have a leak rate of between 0.05% and 0.25%, and class III glove boxes have a leak rate of between 0.25% and 1%.

If you suspect that your system has a leak, the first thing to do is a leak test.

Glove Box Sensors
Oxygen Sensor Range 0.5% to 25%
Oxygen Sensor Resolution 0.01%
Moisture Sensor Range 0% Relative Humidity to 100% Relative Humidity
Moisture Sensor Resolution 0.1% Relative Humidity (15 PPM)
Working Overpressure Range 0 to 5 mbar
Purge Overpressure Range 10 to 15 mbar
Maximum Input Pressure 2 bar

The exhaust of the glove box does not have filtration and so should be exhausted into a fumehood or exhaust stack of the building.
