Regenerable Purifying Column: Single purifier column containing oxygen and moisture removing materials. When the purifier material becomes saturated it must be regenerated. During regeneration the enclosure is isolated form the purifier so no oxygen and moisture removal occurs.
Dual Regenerable Purifying Column: Dual purifier design. One purifier column is removing oxygen and moisture from the atmosphere whilst the second purifier column is being regenerated.
Quad Regenerable Purifying Column: 2 pairs of purifier columns. Each pair of columns is removing oxygen and moisture whilst the other pair is being regenerated.
Large Capacity Solvent Removal: Contains activated carbon. Carbon must be replaced when saturated.
Regenerable Large Capacity Solvent Removal: Contains Molecular Sieve. Solvent trapped in the sieve can be removed by the regeneration process.


Inert's Argon-1 single column gas management system is equipped with high-capacity purification columns, 0-60 CFM variable speed blower and 1.5-inch diameter gas loop for standard glovebox flow rate of inert gas. This system is perfect for medium throughput or small to mid-size enclosures that require an < 1ppm O2 and H2O inert atmosphere. The free-standing design allows for easy retro-fit of existing glove boxes, simplifying replacement of obsolete control systems with the latest in gas purification technology.


Our Gas Management Systems provide a < 1ppm O2 and H2O inert atmosphere required for a multitude of air-sensitive applications.
