Dozens of customers for
Terra Glove Boxes

The Series 500 Full-View Glove box Isolator combines advantages of several other Terra lines of glove chambers.

The Best of Both Worlds
Like our plastic glove boxes, it allows full visibility of operations in process, reducing the claustrophobic sensation that operators often experience when working with a stainless steel chamber. Transparent front and rear panels also allow easy modifications to suit particular requirements, such as custom sealed cut-outs for microscope optics, cameras, or other process equipment. Inlet/outlet ports can also be specified for connection of gas purge and humidity controls. Select either Static-Dissipative PVC, which resists many chemicals, eliminates static charges, and aids in particle controls, or polycarbonate, which resists heat.

Like our other stainless steel chambers, the Series 500 ensures a strong, static-safe design that is ideal for a broad range of controlled temperature and humidity tests in many gas environments. Its spacious size accommodates bulky equipment, and its side flanges allow the addition of air locks and also permit several units to be connected in series.

The front and rear panels are tightly installed using double-gasketed, compression seals. A fluorescent light fixture, cord and switch are mounted to the exterior of the chamber to ensure proper illumination without contaminating the internal environment or posing a combustion hazard in the presence of flammable gases. UV lighting is also available.

Convenient Access, Optimal Versatility
These chambers come standard with dual opposing arm ports (two in front and two in the rear) that can be used with any gloves designed for 10" (254 mm) round flanges (including Terra bonded or accordion-type gloves; order separately). Other glove port configurations, including iris glove ports, are also available on a custom basis.

Optional air locks help maintain the integrity of the controlled environment without sacrificing convenience. All air locks are pre-mounted to a side flange that is easy to install on the chamber; select air locks for right- or left-side installation. They minimize nitrogen loss and contamination inflow while parts are introduced or removed, particularly when equipped with their own gas controls. On a custom basis, air locks, can be ordered with dual mounting flanges to “cascade” several atmospheric chambers in series. All air locks include a .125" NPT pipe-tapped opening for connection of purge gas and a .25" NPT outlet to accommodate an Automatic RB® (Relief/Bleed) Valve.


Stands for Series 500 Glove Boxes Stands for Series 500 Glove Boxes
Constructed of all-welded 1.5" (38 mm) square tubing, these stands are specially designed to support Series 500 glove boxes. Select powder-coated (white) steel or 304 stainless steel stands, with or without rubber casters. All stands raise chambers 30" (762 mm) off of floor, add 3" (76 mm) for casters.

Air Locks
Air locks minimize nitrogen loss and contamination inflow while parts are introduced or removed, particularly when equipped with their own gas controls. They feature safety glass viewing windows on doors, sealed with one-piece, nonadhesive compression gaskets. Knife-edge door frame seals against noncontaminating polyurethane gasket in a recessed channel. On a custom basis, air locks can be ordered with dual mounting flanges to “cascade” several atmospheric chambers in series. All air locks include .125" NPT pipe-tapped opening for connection of purge gas and a .25" NPT outlet to accommodate an Automatic RB® (Relief/Bleed) Valve.
