Glove Boxes, Basic, Mail Processing
Definition : Basic glove boxes designed to provide a confined atmosphere in which mail may be opened and processed (e.g., sorting, opening of packages). These boxes typically include big, easy-open doors to pass large packages in and out of the box; some include flexible diaphragms that permit the use of the gloves without changing the internal pressure in the box. Mail processing glove boxes are used to facilitate the manipulation of contaminated or potentially contaminated (e.g., with anthrax) mail; they may prevent the spread of contamination during the sorting and opening process by keeping the manipulation of mail sealed inside the glove box. These glove boxes are intended for use where mail is processed, including in healthcare facilities.
