Abstract

One of the problems in a tritium separation installation is controlling the temperature of the isotopic exchange column. To maintain a constant column temperature, the signal from the monitoring system (sensors) is used to control a power supply for the electrical heat exchangers. Other parameters measured in the flow circuit are the pressure, water level in the column and boiler temperature. The computer to be used for the control is equipped with LabView software, a data acquisition board, and a signal conditioner. Also, we developed a new monitoring system for detritiation installation using National Instruments products, FieldPoint Modules, LabView 6.1 and serial board, configuring for RS-485, usefully for long distance. 1 Introd
