At Banthrax, we deliver, simple, practical, fail safe workstations that keep technicians and processes in safe, separate environments. Safe, efficient work should be easy both for technicians and the processes they perform. Posi-DomeT I-Box workstations empower users to stay in a comfortable, healthy environment for people, while handling tools and materials in the best environment for the process they perform. This is the way work should be done, if we believe in effectiveness and quality.

Banthrax Introduces a New Glovebox Design Breakthrough for Inert Processing.
Compact Glovebox system combines the best of massive glove box & flexible glove bag technology for inert or anaerobic handling.
Banthrax Corporation has announced release of their new Posi-Dome I-Box family of compact glovebox cabinets for anaerobic, inert gas or special environment processing.
With a footprint under 0.48 square meters and a price from $881 to $2,280 USD, these efficient, rugged cabinets open new options for anaerobic and special environment isolation. This family of volume production clam-shell cabinets offers inert processing to projects lacking room or budget for traditional inert workstations.
Based on field-proven Posi-Dome Basic D cabinets, these inert isolation cabinets provide energy-efficient, gas-efficient purge, like glove bag enclosures, but with the stability and long service life of massive steel and glass isolators. Optimized for efficient, ergonomic operation, like a glove bag, Posi-Dome I-Box cabinets are purged by displacement without the cost, noise, energy and safety issues of hard-vacuum purging.
A few applications from field testing and Posi-Dome Basic D users:
ADVANTAGES of Posi-Dome I-Box cabinets:
Flexibility - Compact, Portable, 10 standard models & 14 options
Human Engineering - Excellent ergonomics far beyond old tech isolators
Ease of Cleaning - Minimum surface area, with NO SEAMS & NO CORNERS
Pressure Control - Simple, user friendly, reliable system with only 6 critical moving parts
Reliability - Fail-Safe design runs for years usually without need for repair or calibration
Efficiency - Small, handy work zone encourages healthy, efficient work process
Gas savings- Most users use just 130 to 320 liters per full (mult-cycle) purge
Economy- Typ. maintenance & operating expense < $90 USD/year
LIMITATIONS of Posi-Dome I-Box cabinets:
No Large Objects- Not for containing long items or big equipment
No Flame Inside- Must avoid heat buildup in the cabinet
No Strong Organic Solvents- Acetone, MEK, etc. will attack window
Must Recharge w gas, cabinets lack Dry-Train so gas flow needed
These compact isolators are not for everyone, but they are powerful, cost effective assets for the space efficient. With a simple, user-friendly design, fail-safe process protection and years of field testing in US and Asian applications, the risk is low. A closer look will make sense for many with anaerobic processing needs. It may be prudent to check them out quickly, as these low initial prices are temporary.
