Mechanical Assembly High Purity-Atmospheric Pressure Glove Box Dean
Contact at ANL Stan Wiedmeyer Stan has worked on a number of Glove Box projects here at ANL over a period of 26 years. The vast majority of the boxes would be termed “isolation” since their purpose is to separate the worker from the materials The ANL boxes have gas circulation and purifiers in them but that is not their main objective.
