Device, Facility, and Operation / Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology Tsukuba, Japan November 12-16, 2001

A tritium stripping and recovery system that supports the operation of 800 m3 of glovebox space is discussed. The system has been in successful operation since 1994. It continues to maintain the glovebox atmosphere at less than 0.1 Ci/m3, and has recovered grams of tritium from accidental releases.
