Vacuum dry box

A Vacuum Dry Box is a piece of safety equipment which can provide an inert, or controlled atmosphere for handling sensitive materials.[1] These devices can commonly be found in the fume hoods of chemistry labs,[2] in facilities handling deadly pathogens, in NASA[3] Moon Rock Handling facilities and in Industrial applications. Inert atmosphere glove boxes are also used for painting and sandblasting.[4]
