Has anyone seen, developed, or researched solutions for shielding laboratory-scale vacuum manifolds for pulling high vacuum on glass vessels? This would be a large (approx. 10-foot wide) glass manifold that would not be located inside of a fume hood. We want to reduce the hazard of flying glass in the event of a glassware failure and resulting implosion.
While this particular apparatus is part of a renovation for a new research group, we have some similar equipment on our academic campus that could benefit from the same kind of solution.
Sliding panels/doors? Enclosures? Hanging blast shields? Anything like this in use?
