Cryogenic Liquid Handling GlovesIntroduction to Cryo Gloves:
Tempshield Cryo-Gloves are multi-layer insulated gloves designed to provide protection to the hands and arms from the hazards encountered when working with ultra cold. They are light weight, flexible, durable, clean, allow for excellent dexterity, comfortable to wear for extended periods and are extremely warm.
The Tempshield Cryo-Gloves line of gloves for cryogenic applications are manufactured in two versions: Water Resistant and Waterproof. These two versions are recommended for use with liquid nitrogen. The Water Resistant can be used where the protection is to be mainly against cold. The Waterproof can be used against quantities of splashing liquid.
The Water Resistant and Waterproof gloves were developed to offer protection in temperatures ranging from -160°C to +148°C. They are currently being used worldwide for use with cryogenic gases, low temperature freezers, dry ice, cold rooms, etc. You will find the Cryo-Gloves being used in biomedical, laboratory research, industry, aerospace, frozen food processing, and wherever protection from the hazards of ultra-cold is necessary. One should never attempt the transferal of liquid nitrogen from a liquid nitrogen dewar without the use of this kind of hand protection.
Under no circumstances, should the Tempshield Cryo-Gloves be used with liquid oxygen. None of these gloves are designed to offer protection against immersion in cryogenic liquids. All of these gloves are designed to provide protection against the hazards of extreme cold. These gloves should not be confused with work gloves designed for heavy wear.
