From: bmowery**At_Symbol_Here**ycp.edu Subject: Glove box exhaust; heat sources in Organic labs Date: December 11, 2008 10:52:04 AM EST (CA) I have two questions: 1. We are attempting to resurrect a glove box that has not been used in more than five years, and I have no recent experience with glove boxes. Where can I find information about exhaust requirements, especially after the regeneration of the catalyst? What other safety considerations I should be aware of? 2. We will be equipping a renovated Organic teaching lab sometime in 2009 Any thoughts on the use of Thermowells versus the Glass-col type heating mantles? I'm not thrilled with the idea of sand in the Thermowells to make one size fit several sizes of rbf. We use semimicro scale, 100 mL rbf max. Thank you.
