Vacuum ovens are used primarily for the removal of moisture from
transfer items prior to entry into the glove box environment. But
the may also be used for curing during or after the process operation.
Glove Box Technology Ltd design and manufacture High Performance
Pass-through Antechamber Vacuum/Nitrogen Ovens for glove boxes.
Based upon our standard antechamber design, two models are available.
A general-purpose oven operating between the temperature ranges
of ambient to 200ºC, and a high temperature model designed
to operate up to 600ºC.
The double door antechamber allows for the transfer material to
be heated, evacuated and gas purged prior to entry into the glove
box for processing, or similarly heat- treated during or after processing
in the glove box prior to removal.
The vacuum ovens are equipped with programmable temperature controllers,
which can sequentially initiate rate of temperature rise, hold temperature,
evacuation levels, gas purge, and cooling to a timed programme.
Designed for rugged use, the radiant heaters are internally mounted
with stainless steel reflectors, and all electrical connections
are external of the antechamber. Thermal control is maintained by
use of insulating blanket and water-cooled double walled chamber.
Various pumping designs are available for applications that require
specific vacuum treatment. Internal trays and slides are available
for purpose-designed systems.
Where there is a production requirement, which identifies a hold
up in the oven due to temperature, evacuation or cooling times,
we offer a solution by design of our docking facility using multiple
mobile oven units.
Vacuum ovens are made to order providing opportunity to vary the
design to your specific requirements.
