Glovebox

Vigor gloveboxes are made of stainless steel and are entirely welded except for the front window and gloveports, which is where you’ll find our patented double seals. Tucked in between two traditional seals, Vigor has incorporated a vacuum train that eliminates diffusion from either side

SciLab Glovebox

Glove boxThe Sci-Lab with its industry leading gas purifier capacity together with integrated energy saving features is perfect more the most demanding of inert environment applications.

The Sci-Lab is available in just about any size you need.  We do have several standard sizes which are:

  • 1200/750 – Two glove workstation
  • 1500/750 – Three glove workstation
  • 1800/750 – Four glove workstation
  • 2400/750 – Four glove workstation

All workstations are also available in double sided configurations.

Custom Glovebox

In situVigor has plenty of experience in designing and producing custom glove boxes of all shapes and sizes with extensive  knowledge of integrating a whole host of machines and equipment within a glove box.

Whatever your requirement Vigor will work closely with you, the customer, to offer a cost-effective and quality solution.
