The intent of this guide is to provide general guidelines for the applicability (selection), design, modification, installation, operation, calibration, and maintenance of measurement and test equipment in remotely operated facilities such as hot cells. Measurement and test equipment include but are not limited to analytical instruments, temperature and pressure gauges and sensors, dimensional measurement systems, balances, radiation monitors, sampling systems, and process monitoring systems. Design features and modifications necessary to calibrate, maintain, and eventually dispose of this equipment are also suggested in this guide.
Test Equipment,:Remotely Operated Facilities
This guide will be helpful to monitor, measure, or control physical, radiological, chemical, and radiochemical parameters of processes, materials, or conditions in remote environments.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
