GloveBox Systems

What is Stainless Steel Glove Boxes?

Stainless Steel Glove box has been designed to provide a hermetically sealed environment, providing critical electrical components from being damaged. A continuous weld prevents humidity and oxygen from re-entering the chamber after backfilled with nitrogen or argon. Constructed from 304-grade stainless steel gives our glove box a strong and durable frame and its tilt-up front clear AR polycarbonate window allows large components to easily be placed inside the glovebox chamber.

Stainless steel was first produced in 1913, over 100 years ago and is one of the most common metal to be used in architecture, automotive, food, medical, and research and development industries. 304-grade stainless steel contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel providing high corrosion resistance and extremely durable.

Having no pores or cracks make it impossible to harbor bacteria, viruses or dirt; making stainless steel an ideal material for surgical, medical and laboratory environments.

And not to mention, it is also aesthetically pleasing.

Benefits of Stainless Steel

  • Easy to clean
  • Strong and durable
  • Hygienic properties
  • Chemical resistant
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Aesthetically pleasing

Seam Weld (Continuous Weld)

A seam weld is a continuous weld to join two surface areas. Unlike, a stitch weld there are no gaps between the weld producing a leak-tight seam and robust bond. This is critical in the construction of Cleatech’s Stainless Steel Glovebox.

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.
