Controlling the temperature inside the glove box below 40 degrees Celsius usually requires the following steps:

1, choose the right glove box model: ensure that the purchase of the glove box model with temperature control function, some high-end glove box equipped with refrigeration system, can effectively control the internal temperature.
2, the installation of refrigeration devices: If the glove box itself does not have refrigeration capabilities, you can consider installing external refrigeration devices, such as water chillers or refrigeration tablets, through the circulation of refrigerant to reduce the internal temperature of the glove box.
2,1 The frequency of maintenance of the refrigeration system depends on a number of factors, including the frequency of use of the equipment, the working environment, the model of the equipment and the manufacturer’s recommendations. In general, refrigeration systems should be thoroughly inspected and maintained at least once a year, but more frequent maintenance may be required under high loads or in harsh environments. Below are some general guidelines for maintaining your refrigeration system:

2.1.1 Periodic Inspection: Check the operational status of the refrigeration system at least once a month, including temperature readings, cooling efficiency, refrigerant level and pressure.
2.1.2 Cleaning: Clean the condenser and evaporator of the refrigeration system regularly. Dust and dirt on these components can reduce the efficiency of the system. Cleaning frequency is usually every six months to once a year, depending on environmental conditions.
2.1.3 Filter replacement: If the refrigeration system utilizes air or gas filters, the filters should be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. This is usually done at least once a year.
2.1.4 Checking the refrigerant: The level and pressure of the refrigerant needs to be checked regularly to ensure that the system is operating properly. If refrigerant leaks or abnormal levels are found, immediate steps should be taken to repair them.
2.1.5 Check electrical connections: Check all electrical connections of the refrigeration system to ensure that there are no signs of looseness or corrosion. This is essential to prevent unplanned downtime and keep the system safe.
2.1.6 Professional maintenance: In addition to routine inspection and cleaning, the refrigeration system should be regularly maintained by a professional technician. The frequency of professional maintenance is usually once a year, but may vary depending on the usage of the equipment.
2.1.7 Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines: It is of utmost importance to follow the maintenance guidelines provided by the equipment manufacturer, as they will provide the most accurate maintenance recommendations for the particular model and design.

  1. Use a temperature control system: Modern glove boxes are usually equipped with an automated control system that monitors and regulates the temperature inside the box in real time. By setting temperature parameters, the system automatically regulates the operation of the refrigeration unit to maintain a constant temperature.
  2. The use of adiabatic materials: in order to reduce the impact of the external environment on the internal temperature of the glove box, you can use adiabatic materials on the outer wall of the glove box, such as polyurethane foam or vacuum adiabatic panels, in order to reduce the heat exchange.
  3. Reasonable layout of the internal equipment: the layout of the internal equipment of the glove box will also affect the temperature distribution. Placement of heat-generating equipment directly in the work area should be avoided, or heat sinks and fans should be used to disperse heat.
  4. Regular maintenance and inspection: The refrigeration system requires regular inspection and maintenance to ensure its normal operation. Also, check the sealing performance of the glove box to prevent outside heat from entering the box.
  5. Ambient temperature control: Keeping the ambient temperature of the laboratory where the glove box is located also at a lower level can reduce the refrigeration burden of the glove box.
    Through the above measures, the temperature inside the glove box can be effectively controlled below 40 degrees Celsius, providing a stable environment for experimental operations.
