MBRAUN Nuclear and nanotechnology

Personal Protection

When substances or processes pose hazards to operator health, containment is the priority. MBRAUN can help you ensure the absolute safety of employees by offering specially designed isolator containment solutions and inert gas glovebox systems.

We have clean-environment solutions whether you're protecting operators from highly active or toxic substances or simple dust hazards. The disparity in operator protection requirements across the industries we serve has led to MBRAUN's development of systems that emphasize defined containment levels, filtration quality, safe change filters, European explosive-atmosphere (ATEX) zones and even defined atmospheres.

Nuclear enclosures

MBRAUN has provided solutions to most of the Nuclear Sites in operation in the United States. 

MBRAUN is an IS0 9001:2015 certified company and has been approved as a qualified NQA-1 supplier from multiple government laboratory facilities such as, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, Canadian Nuclear Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory and others.  MBRAUN provides multiple containment solutions and barrier systems which also include shielded hot cells. 



  • Operator protection while working with nanoparticles
  • Glovebox operating in under pressure mode
  • Gas inlet and outlet with HEPA-Filters
  • Automatic generation of airflow in case of leak to guaranty the under pressure


The ISO-Pro-Nano glovebox with integrated blower is designed for operator protection while working with nanoparticles. It is operated in relative negative pressure to the environment (-200 Pa). The operator safety is guaranteed by the high leak tightness of < 1 vol%/h and the automatic (under)pressure control. In case of a leak (e.g., the breakdown of a glove) the blower generates a permanent inward gas flow with a velocity > 0.5 m/s to prevent the diffusion of box atmosphere into the surroundings. Many options are available to enrich the basic version such as with HEPA H 14 filters, front hinged window, inert gas purge operation, round/rectangular transfer chamber, push-push filter, round antechamber and its filtration, overpressure valve.

Tritium Retention Systems (TRS)

Tritium Retention Systems (TRS) convert tritiated chemical species (principally elemental, oxide and hydrocarbon) in the process stream to the oxide form (HTO) and remove the tritiated water by adsorption on molecular sieve beds.
