Smart Glovebox

Product Announcement from Terra Universal, Inc.

  • Automates low-humidity processing to prevent degradation of moisture-sensitive parts
  • Gas control system auto-adjusts nitrogen purge to maintain humidity set point
  • Ideal for work with semiconductor components, medical devices and pharmaceutical powders
  • Fully integrated turnkey system takes seconds to install and program

Terra's Smart Glovebox™ automatically maintains a low-humidity environment to protect moisture-sensitive parts.

Its quick-response feedback system continuously monitors the chamber's relative humidity level and indicates the measured value on a bright LED display.

The minute the %RH climbs above a set point value, the Smart Glovebox™ activates a flow of dry nitrogen for as long as needed to restore the desired humidity level.

This fast-acting control system economizes on nitrogen use. Comparison testing reveals that the Smart Glovebox maintaining a 10% RH level uses only 22% of the nitrogen required by a flowmeter-based system of identical size. More importantly, this automated operation maintains the integrity of sensitive parts, such as semiconductor chips, medical devices or pharmaceutical powders, without operator monitoring.

For optimal performance, select a pass-through air lock, which functions as a transfer buffer zone.

The Smart Glovebox includes a control system, Automatic RB valve, and inlet/outlet fittings for 0.25" (6 mm)-diameter gas line. A removable back wall allows introduction of large process equipment. Select air lock, work surface and gloves separately.
