"Compact" Glove Box
2 year warranty badge

The #830-Series of glove boxes has been developed to minimize drafts and maximize the effectiveness of your analytical balance. All units feature high visibility of the interior, cleanliness, safety, complete containment, portability, and a draft free atmosphere.

These compact glove boxes are available in four (4) user friendly sizes. They are excellent for use in hazardous situations where materials to be weighed must be contained. The chamber is ideal for determining the dry weight measure or moisture content of aqueous solutions, adhesives, cereals, toxic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, paper, plastics, and light radio active materials. All units minimize product degradation caused by moisture absorption.

They may also be used when working with toxic substances, asbestos fibers, sewage residue, and harmful liquid vapors.

NOTE: These units are not recommended for use with aromatic hydrocarbons.

When working with analytical balances, top loaders, bench scales, and/or moisture analyzers, we recommend placing those items upon a marble block for added stability. Special access doors are available if transfer chambers are not desired.  

Visit the 810-Series glove box for transfer chamber AND flat side access door for introducing large equipment into the glove box.

HEPA Filtration Options

We offer three (3) models of the #830-SERIES glove boxes featuring HEPA filtration packages. There are two (2) different versions available.  NOTE: All three models include the same basic #810-Series features and are available in four (4) sizes. 

“Closed Loop Style” CLC Style.
This system continually re-circulates and filters the
internal atmosphere of the glove box. It is a negative pressure containment unit. Magnehelic™ gauges indicate both inner chamber pressure and pressure drop levels across the filters. These gauges indicate when it is time to change the HEPA filters. Add 15.5” (395 mm) to the overall height of this style glove box.
What’s included with the “Closed Loop” CLC-Style glove box:
  •  Totally enclosed blower (fan) unit.
  •  Two (2) cylindrical 8” inch Ø (203 mm) HEPA filters.
  •  Two (2) Magnehelic gauges. Domestic models in Inches of H2O and Export in Pascals.
  •  All necessary hoses and connections.
  •  Non-Hydroscopic pre-filters.
  •  Standard 24 month warranty (Not gloves or consumables).
“Open Exhaust Style” (Two filter versions)
These glove boxes draw the ambient room atmosphere through a HEPA filter and then into the chamber. Both versions are set up for negative pressure operations. Exhaust atmosphere is filtered through a HEPA or 5μ (micron) glass media filter. The “open exhaust” outlet can be set up to connect to your house exhaust system. Please specify a #800-VENT outlet accessory.


Single HEPA Filtration. Provides HEPA filtered air into OR out of the glove box.


Double HEPA Filtration system continuously circulated the internal atmosphere through two (2) 8" round HEPA filters.


Closed-Loop, Double HEPA filtration system continuously circulates the internal atmosphere through two (2) 8" round HEPA filters.

Compact Glove Box additional variations

The #830-SERIES of glove boxes can be modified to create different variations.
Access doors can be substituted for transfer chambers. Sizes of the doors vary according to the size of the glove box. 
Exhaust (4” [102 mm] Ø) vents may also be added for connecting to your house exhaust system. 
Square (box type) transfer chambers can be substituted for cylindrical (round) ones. Square transfer chambers have pressure limitations however. NOTE: The maximum working pressure on the square transfer chambers is 6” of WC (150 mm). It is not engineered to support negative pressure.
We now offer a new automatic door locking system for these transfer chambers. Catalog #800-DOOR/ILOCK.
