Nuclear instrumentation – Constructional requirements and classification of radiometric gauges
|Publication Date:||1 March 2011|
|ICS Code (Nuclear energy engineering):||27.120|
This International Standard applies to the manufacture and installation of electrical measuring systems and instruments utilizing radioactive sources (radiometric gauges, hereinafter called gauges). It also applies to source housings intended for use in the aforementioned measuring systems. This standard applies to equipment, which is not related to power production or to the fuel cycle.
It does not apply to portable gauges which, because of their construction and purposes for use, are intended to be operated as mobile equipment and it does not apply to gauges operated with X-ray tubes, but it can be analogously applicable to these gauges.
The object of this standard is to specify constructional requirements for the design of instruments utilizing radioactive sources in regard of radiation protection. This standard does not take into account mechanical or electrical hazards.
