The Omni-Lab

The OMNI-LAB provides a complete glovebox system with integrated purifier, controls, display and stand. It provides Universities and commercial firms a cost-effective solution with full inert atmosphere performance and a user friendly control system.

VAC designed the OMNI-LAB with simplicity in mind for decades of trouble free performance and low cost of ownership. The manual isolation, antechamber, and purge valves provide easy one hand reliable operation. The PLC tests the system so that incorrect valve positions do not damage the system.

Available in one or two workstation single sided models (see VAC 102282 for two workstations).

Nexus II

The NEXUS II Integrated Glovebox System provides universities, industrial firms and the national laboratories with a full feature system and a new standard in glovebox performance and features. The NEXUS II Integrated glovebox system comes complete with vacuum pump, gloves, shelving, and purge valves - just plug in the utilities and you are ready to start.

The VAC integrated inert gas purifier has a very thin 16" depth and compactly fits entirely under the glovebox at the rear to allow more leg room (14") for more space for under glovebox storage or equipment.
This allows the NEXUS II Integrated to be the ideal platform for custom integrations of cold wells, spin coaters, special heating wells and other equipment for your special projects.
The depth of the NEXUS II Integrated glovebox is 30" and VAC designed the system so it may be flush mounted against a laboratory wall. Choosing the NEXUS II Integrated means your precious laboratory space is preserved.

The purifier is available in both single and dual column model; both with automatic circulation valves and manual glovebox isolation valves. Choose a dual column model to allow simultaneous purification and regeneration. As with all VAC inert gas purifiers, the NEXUS IIIntegrated will achieve less than 1-ppm oxygen and moisture equilibrium.

A new 5.7" color touch screen control and display panel is standard and a 10.4" is optional. Both choices mean fast and easy access to your glovebox settings. The system will also control antechamber evacuation/refill, glovebox pressure and glovebox purge.

The glovebox comes in single, extra (3 port) and double (4 port) lengths, single sided or dual sided. The glovebox is stainless steel with removable end panels. The large 15" diameter and small 6" diameter antechambers and doors are stainless steel.
