Nicolet FRIT Glovebox Workstation designed to provide personnel protection from powdered substances down to a respiratory exposure concentration of less than 1 microgram per cubic meter air (< 1 ug/m3) and product protection during Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR) operations involving a Nicolet iS10 FTIR spectrometer*. Enclosure features polypropylene superstructure and acrylic viewing panels on the front door and on each side.

Enclosure features (2x) 10” oval glove ports and butyl gloves for safe manipulation of equipment / product inside the enclosure. Also features control box with integrated airflow alarm and stack light which alerts the operator when containment is established (green light indicator), when the left side access door is open (amber light indicator), and when containment is not established (red light indicator); control box also features audible alarm to alert the user when face velocity measurement is below the setpoint calibrated by the certifier.

Right-side inlet filter and top-mounted Dual-HEPA fan / filter housing facilitate lateral flow of air across the workspace. Lateral flow protects product from cross-contamination from other products inside enclosure and entrained, ambient particulate from the surrounding environment.

*Nicolet iS10 (W x D x H) dimensions = 550mm x 570mm x 250mm (21.7” x 22.4”” x 9.8”)

Additional features include:

  • 8” Continuous Liner flange on right side for consistent reusability of waste removal system
  • Top mount fan / filter housing features Bag-In-Bag-Out (BIBO) system for safe replacement of primary HEPA filter
  • (2x) LED Lighting provides optimal viewing across the workspace
  • 2 gang modular outlet on back wall of enclosure allows electrical connection inside the unit
  • Gas shocks on front door facilitates ease when loading / unloading equipment and product

SAFETY.  The Glovebox Workstation series provides containment for highly toxic applications using APIs that need more safety than an opened face enclosure. FSI engineering controls are built in to prevent loss of containment. Third Party testing has proven containment on these units to below 50 ng/m³ based on process and quantity.

DESIGN.  Designed as the next step in containment above the FSI Hybrid Isolator, this unit is able to effectively contain using HEPA clean air inlet and HEPA air out. This creates laminar airflow across the interior. The Glovebox Workstation is equipped with dual 4” thick HEPA filters that can be recirculated into the lab or sent directly to house exhaust.

ISO 5 INTERIOR CLEANLINESS. The HEPA inlet provides the interior with a laminar airflow. This HEPA clean environment meets or exceeds ISO 5 for clean processing of work while protecting operators from exposure.

FRONT LIFT DOOR.  The glove ports sit in a front lift door that opens vertically to effectively load and unload equipment. This door is hinged for ease of use.

PHENOLIC BASE.  The chemically resistant phenolic base is dished to maintain spills and protects the work surface from harmful chemicals.

INTERNAL LED LIGHT.  This enclosure features an internal LED light for improved visibility inside of the enclosure and can be adjusted directly on to the application. This light comes standard with every Glovebox Workstation Enclosure.

STANDARD SIZES.  The Glovebox Workstation series is available in 4, 5, and 6 foot standard width options. Customs are available.

The HEPA inlet provides the interior with a laminar airflow. This HEPA clean environment meets or exceeds ISO 5 for clean processing of work while protecting operators from exposure.

The Bag-in/Bag-out Dual HEPA exhaust ensures safe recirculation of air into the room or connection to house exhaust.
