Revolutionary Innovation in Gas Purification Technology

The GENESIS has been designed to be the most cost effective stainless steel inert atmosphere glovebox system on the market.

The GENESIS was born from VAC’s ongoing research and development and our pursuit to simplify the user experience by advancements in inert atmosphere technologies.

Each system is supplied with integrated independent inert gas purifiers. The Genesis Purifier Cartridges are supplied pre-activated and ready for immediate use. Our revolutionary patented design is able to achieve and maintain glovebox oxygen and moisture purity levels of < 1 ppm.

This design eliminates the need for high maintenance external gas purification columns, circulation blowers, regeneration valves, regeneration control systems or requirements for regeneration gas.

VAC’s Cartridge Technology has changed the way the world thinks about inert atmosphere purification methods.

No Regeneration Required.

Genesis Cartridge Purification Technology

Every Genesis Glovebox System comes with oxygen and moisture purification as standard.

Oxygen Purification

Includes an atmosphere circulation assembly, power supply, and oxygen removal cartridge. These low cost cartridges are designed to be replaced by fully activated replacements purchased exclusively from Vacuum Atmospheres Company.

Moisture Purification

Includes an atmosphere circulation assembly, power supply, and moisture removal cartridge. These low cost cartridges are designed to be replaced by fully activated replacements purchased from exclusively Vacuum Atmospheres Company.

Technical Data
