Thank you guys for this topic! I find it very helpful as I am still getting familiar with the new lingo. And it saves my time now because I don't have to google every acronym I come across on this site! ;D

I would agree with that,

HPSI/LPSI pronunced hipsee and lipsee are terms I recall from working at BWR's for high or low pressure safety injection. I have also seen HPCI/LPCI which is the same thing but refers to core injection directly. HPI/LPI are basically the same systems but are system designations from B&W PWR plants.



maybe helps a little

Posing a question here ....  Another RP and I disagree on the acronym uR/hr as it pertains to the Ludlum Model-19.  Is it micro REM or micro Roentgen?

....that factor is one for gamma, well .93 for roentgen but radcon math applies.

Rem


The Model 19 is a highly sensitive gamma µR/meter employing an internally housed, 2.5 x 2.5 cm (1.0 x 1.0 in.) NaI detector. The measuring range is 0 to 50 µSv/h (0 to 5000 µR/hr).


https://ludlums.com/products/health-physics/product/model-19


sievert is used for radiation dose quantities such as equivalent dose and effective dose


rem is an older, CGS unit of equivalent dose, effective dose, and committed dose


the rem has been defined since 1976 as equal to 0.01 sievert

Marlin probably hasn't even thought about the definition of REM since before 1966,....

Rem

Typically REM is REM and Rad is R but in this case I suspect that it represents both, so as an androgynous designation how sexist of you.  [devious]

sew, from awl the high faluting technical expousements delivered here, we can conclude that the ludlum designers where sew cheep that they decided too save printing ink buy using r instead of rem.

Phone call to Ludlum HQ in USA and asked them.  Their HP tech rep said the R stood for Roentgen.  Case closed.
