Gloveless Anaerobic Chamber

Gloveless Anaerobic Chambers offer the operator a convenient glove-free ability to handle and inspect samples under low oxygen (0-5 ppm) conditions. A special cuff and sleeve-vacuum system allows the operator to work barehanded (or with surgical gloves) inside the glove box. After the operator inserts their arms into the gloveless sleeves, a foot operated sleeve-vacuum system creates an inert atmosphere in the sleeves prior to removing the Arm Port Plugs. This permits the operator’s arms to enter the glove box without compromising the anaerobic chamber atmosphere. Tactile efficiency is improved. The Arm Port Plugs are used to seal the glove box while it is idle.

Units operate similar to other Coy anaerobic chambers using a palladium catalyst to remove O2 through a H2 Gas Mix (5%). Equipped with an airlock to establish low O2 conditions prior to transferring samples and instrumentation in/out of the work area.

All Coy Polymer Gloveless Anaerobic Chamber include a built in heating system and dehumidifier to maintain ideal temperature and moisture levels through the touch screen display.

Two standard size units available plus custom sizing to meet your needs.

  • Patented diagram top: Prevents glove fight back and conserves gas consumption making it more economical to operate than competitive units
  • Large side door: For cleaning and large equipment entry
  • Barehanded entry ports: With port plugs to seal chamber when not in use
  • Automatic gas injection system: To maintain proper anaerobic gas mix
  • Maintains 0-5 parts per million (ppm) oxygen level
  • Entire chamber is heated
  • Automatic airlock

All these reason and more have made Coy the most used and cited anaerobic chamber in the world!
