Equipment for Continuous Monitoring of Radioactivity in Gaseous Effluents - Part 1: General Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 January 2002|
|ICS Code (Radiation protection):||13.280|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 60761 defines acceptable forms of such monitoring, provides some general guidance as to the possible range of measurement and capability of such equipment as may be envisaged, and indicates when and where its uses may be practicable.
This standard is applicable to equipment for continuous monitoring of radioactivity in gaseous effluents during normal operations and during anticipated operational occurrences. This standard does not apply to equipment specifically for use in accident conditions. Such equipment may require additional capabilities.
This standard is restricted to equipment for continuously monitoring radioactivity in gaseous effluent. It does not deal with sample extraction and laboratory analysis.
The object of this standard is to lay down mandatory general requirements and give examples of acceptable methods for equipment for continuous monitoring of radioactivity in gaseous effluents.
It specifies, for the equipment described above, the general characteristics, general test procedures, radiation, electrical, safety and environmental characteristics and the identification and certification of the equipment. If this equipment is part of a centralized system for continuous radiation monitoring in a nuclear facility, there may be additional requirements from other standards related to those systems
