Part 21 2005-0041 - Rosemount Transmitters May Not Conform to the Published Accuracy

On December 27, 2005, Rosemount Nuclear Instruments, Inc (RNII) informed the NRC that a multi-meter used in the calibration of certain pressure instruments went out of calibration between 10/10/2005 and 11/18/2005. These instruments may not comform to the published accuracy specification of +/-0.25 % of calibrated span.

Rosemont Nuclear Instruments, Inc (RNII) successfully recalibrated all affected transmitters that had not yet shipped from its facility. The instruments affected by this failure are:

(a) certain Model 1152 gage and differential pressure transmitters with model codes beginning with 1152GP, 1152DP, or 1152HP, inclusive of pressure measuring range codes 3, 4, 5, and 6 (the range code is the 7th position in the model string); and

(b) certain Model 1153 Series B and 1153 Series D gage and differential pressure transmitters with model codes beginning with 1153GB, 1153DB, 1153HB, 1153GD, 1153DD, or 1153HD inclusive of pressure measuring range codes 3, 4, 5, and 6; and

(c) certain Model 1154 and 1154 Series H gage and differential pressure transmitters with model codes beginning with 1154GP, 1154DP, 1154HP, 1154DH, or 1154HH inclusive of pressure measuring range codes 4, 5, and 6.

RNII has initiated communication with its customers. A notification letter with an attachment providing Purchase Order Numbers, Model Numbers, Serial Numbers, and Calibration Dates for instruments have been sent to each of the affected licensees:

Dominion Generation, First Energy Corporation, Progress Energy Carolinas, Georgia Power Co., and Southern Nuclear Operating Co.

If an affected pressure transmitter has been successfully calibrated after receipt from RNII or will be calibrated prior to installation, no further action should be required.
