Manufacturer: Plas Labs
Designed for manually controlling your atmosphere when working with oxygen sensitive materials. It is perfect for working in situations requiring low levels of oxygen during critical isolation of the operator of your research materials. Any insert gas may be used. Its main advantage is minimizing the risk of oxygen entry into the main working chamber. It trace amounts of O2 happen to enter the main chamber, the catalyst heater reduces it to water vapor. The installed drying train system can then be activated to remove any excess water vapor.
Function and Capabilities
- Some typical applications include: Microbiology, Biochemistry, Plasma environment work, animal science studies, and electronic sub-assembly work.
- The Basic Chemical Reaction: The internal atmosphere is drawn off the floor of the glove box and is pushed up through the heating elements and the warm Palladium (Pd) pellets. The Hydrogen in the special gas mixture then reacts with trace amounts of Oxygen to create water vapor. The excess water vapor is then absorbed by the Molecular SieveTM in the three drying train canisters. The canisters are rechargeable.
- The Catalyst Heater Function: The catalyst heater has two main functions. It reduces trace amounts of Oxygen and it maintains the correct incubation temperature level of cultivating anaerobes (35oC to 39oC).
