A new glove-box system that was designed around a high-pressure tritium pump is described. The system incorporates new containment ideas such as "burpler" passive pressure controls, valves that can be turned from outside the box, inflatable door seals, ferro-fluldic motor-shaft seals, and rapid box-to-hood conversion during cryastaging. Currently under construction, the system will contain nine separate sections with automatic pressure-balancing and venting systems.
