Bag-In/Bag-Out Port

Bag-in/bag-out ports protect operators and the internal glovebox environment throughout the waste removal process

Bag-In/Bag-Out ports can be installed on any of Terra's stainless steel gloveboxes and allow operators to safely remove contaminated materials from the chamber without breaching the glovebox environment or exposing the external environment to potential hazards. Waste bags are attached to the flange of this 9” (229 mm)-diameter stainless steel port using durable elastic bands (not provided by Terra).

The Bag-In/Bag-Out port features two grooves on the flange that help to maintain a seal while replacing the waste bag. The old bag should be removed by tightly twisting the bag near the outlet, tying off the twisted section in two places, and then cutting between the two ties.  This technique leaves a portion of the bag covering the outlet while the used waste bag is disposed of.  

Technicians will then slide the elastic band of the old bag to the outermost groove on the flange and wrap a new waste bag over the old one, using another elastic band to secure the new waste bag in the innermost groove. The old elastic band can then be rolled off of the flange by manipulating it through the new waste bag.
