Oxygen Analysis in Glove Boxes


Hazardous or sensitive materials are commonly handled within glove boxes; transparent sealed boxes with gloves built into the side. Users are able to create the appropriate atmosphere within this space, allowing them to prevent any unwanted reactions from occurring. This is often achieved by introducing inert gases such as argon, nitrogen or helium.

Uses for glove boxes include:

  • Electrochemical experiments
  • Chemical and sample storage
  • Welding
  • Semiconductor manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical handling
  • Photovoltaic research

Oxygen analysis within glove boxes is essential in order to ensure that the atmosphere is maintained within the chamber and to identify any leakages present. The Rapidox 1100 oxygen gas analyser has proven to be an attractive and cost-effective option for various glove box applications.

Zirconia or electrochemical oxygen sensors offer the ability to analyse the oxygen content at low ppm or high percentage levels. Users are able to select between two electrochemical sensors, one for measurements of 0.1ppm to 10,000ppm (1%) and another for 0-100% oxygen range. Analysers fitted with a zirconia oxygen sensor provide fast and accurate analysis over the range 1ppm to 100%.

Available in a number of configurations, the Rapidox 1100 gas analyser features fully programmable alarm circuits, programmable analogue outputs and complete data-logging software. In addition, Cambridge Sensotec offers full servicing options and a wide range of gas analysis accessories.
