You cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or touch radiation. You can only detect radiation with special equipment.
Detecting Non-Ionizing Radiation (NIR)
Since non-ionizing radiation is simply low-energy waves of the electromagnetic spectrum (radio waves or microwaves), detection is hard. The easiest way is to look for any nearby antennas, satellite dishes, or radio towers. Or, if you can listen to your radio, watch TV, have cell service or use wireless internet, Bluetooth, wireless mouse or keyboard you are definitely being exposed to NIR.
To measure the quantity of radio/microwaves you will need an EMF (electromagnetic field) meter. A very simple way to determine the wavelength of NIR is the length of the antenna. As a general rule, the shorter the antenna, the more energized the waves. To pick up radio waves, an antenna must be the length of the longest wavelength. You can compare the antenna length to the electromagnetic spectrum chart to find the energy intensity.
Detecting Ionizing Radiation
Ionizing radiation can be measured very precisely — much more precisely than other potentially hazardous materials. One of the basic measuring instruments is the Geiger-Muller counter. The instrument consists of a detector set at the end of a probe with counting electronics. This instrument counts the number of radioactive particles entering a sensitive detection chamber, and translates that signal into a needle movement on an analog dial or a value displayed on a screen.
The Geiger counter emits a click for every particle, so with only background radiation, the instrument clicks every few seconds. In a high radiation environment, it clicks rapidly in proportion to the radiation level. This way, the user gets a visible as well as audible measurement of radioactivity.
Some people receive exposure to radiation as part of their employment (radiologists and nuclear plant workers). Worker radiation exposures are carefully
To increase public awareness of innovations within the nuclear energy industry and their importance, the Nuclear Energy Institute has produced a series of videos about projects that have been recognized with a Top Industry Practice award. This is the second in a series of four videos that will be posted on the Nuclear Energy Institute’s website on a weekly basis. This video, “Global Ties Boost Nuclear Plant Performance,” highlights an international exchange of best practices by Exelon Nuclear. In its international technical exchange program, Exelon Nuclear has partnered in technical exchange with three of the largest international electric utilities: Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co., Tokyo Electric Power Co. and Electricity de France. Together, the four companies operate nearly one-quarter of the nuclear energy plants worldwide. All four have benefited from sharing plant operating experience, best practices, lessons learned, equipment reliability, risk management, and predictive and preventative maintenance practices. Released on July 7, the first video, “High Tech Stress Relief,” looked at the challenge of microscopic stress corrosion cracking in plant systems.

Model no : 18A The display unit, which is used to display the results of corresponding temperature of a nuclear plant and to generate a warning signal in the event of rising temperature beyond limits as set. Here the controller continuously polls the temperature with certain regular time intervals and displays over the 7_segment display unit for the Microcontroller to enable the whole operation by executing the program. The temperature readings observed by the microcontroller through temperature sensor are compared with the programmed temperature value to in turn operate the relay that switches on a warning device.
The power supply consists of a step down transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage to 12V AC. This is converted to DC using a Bridge rectifier. The ripples are removed using a capacitive filter and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage regulator 7805 which is required for the operation of the microcontroller and other components.

http://www.bestpaydayloanlenders.co.nr/ - CRAZY! A berm holding the flooded Missouri River back from a Nebraska nuclear power station collapsed early Sunday, but federal regulators said they were monitoring the situation and there was no danger. The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station shut down in early April for refueling, and there is no water inside the plant, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said. Also, the river is not expected to rise higher than the level the plant was designed to handle. NRC spokesman Victor Dricks said the plant remains safe.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2008 - The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition (CASEnergy Coalition) today released a new white paper titled, Job Creation in the Nuclear Renaissance that catalogues the potential for tens of thousands of American jobs in the nuclear energy industry in the next decade.
The white paper examines the job growth potential for existing and future nuclear power plants and finds that nuclear plants are a boon to local economies. Altogether, 12,000 to 21,000 new jobs will be added to the U.S. market if some 30 reactors currently planned for construction are built. These are long-term jobs that would exist throughout the operation of the reactor, promising decades of employment.

In “The Secret is Plastic,” the Nuclear Energy Institute highlights award-winning new applications of plastic piping at two nuclear plants that enhance their operation and decrease the cost of maintaining plant water systems. Duke Energy employees at the Catawba nuclear station in South Carolina and AmerenUE employees at the Callaway nuclear plant in Missouri shared the award.
