Optional Glove Port Components

Port Covers

glove ports
Port Cover #1694-53
Port covers feature a threaded closure and an O-ring that seals tightly against the glove ports from the inside of the chamber. Using this internal-mount system, the chamber can be sealed when work is not in process and gloves/sleeves can be replaced without breaching the enclosure. Handles allow for easy manipulation of these caps. Use on 10-inch glove ports, No. 1694-52 (standard on most Terra gloveboxes).
