Nuclear Technology Series. Course 3: Principles of Process Instrumentation.
Technical Education Research Center, Waco, TX.
This technical specialty course is one of thirty-five courses designed for use by two-year postsecondary institutions in five nuclear technician curriculum areas: (1) radiation protection technician, (2) nuclear instrumentation and control technician, (3) nuclear materials processing technician, (4) nuclear quality-assurance/quality-control technician, and (5) nuclear reactor (plant) operator trainee. This course, Principles of Process Instrumentation, contains eight modules: Temperature-Sensing Devices: Glass-Bulb Thermometers; Temperature-Sensing Devices: Thermocouples; Temperature-Sensing Devices: Resistance Thermometers; Temperature-Sensing Devices: Pyrometers; Basic Principles of Flow Measurement; Pressure-Sensing Devices; Flow-Sensing Devices: Differential-Pressure Flowmeters; and Flow-Sensing Devices: Linear Flowmeters. Each module follows a typical format including the following sections: introduction, module prerequisites, objectives, subject matter, exercises, materials, procedures, data tables, reference materials, and tests. (A master index and suggested program planning guides are also available--see CE 026 856 and CE 026 639-642.) (LRA)
