About this Item

99, [1] pages. Illustrations, some with color. References. Distribution indicates that perhaps a few as 16 copies were distributed. Staplebound. Ink note on front cover. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The plant traces its history to the Pratt & Whitney plant dedicated by then Senator Harry S. Truman in 1942, which manufactured Double Wasp engines during World War II. In 1949 the Atomic Energy Commission commissioned the Bendix Corporation to build the non-nuclear components of nuclear warheads there. Bendix became AlliedSignal in 1983 and eventually Honeywell in 1999. The Kansas City Plant is a National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) facility managed and operated by Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies (formerly Bendix Aviation Corporation and Bendix Kansas City Division of Allied-Signal) that produces 85 percent of the nonnuclear material used in the United States nuclear weapon arsenal. It was renamed the Kansas City National Security Campus in 2015. The plant produces non-nuclear mechanical, electronic, and engineered material components for U.S. national defense systems such as high-energy laser ignition systems, microwave hybrid microcircuit production, and miniature electromechanical devices. The plant also provides technical services such as metallurgical/mechanical analysis, analytical chemistry, environmental testing, nondestructive testing, computer-based training, simulations and analysis, and technical certification. Leak detection is used to determine if and in some cases where a leak has occurred in systems which contain liquids and gases. Methods of detection include hydrostatic testing, infrared, and laser technology. The primary purpose of leak detection systems (LDS) is to help to detect and localize leaks. LDS provide data to assist decision-making. Leak detection systems can also enhance productivity and system reliability thanks to reduced downtime and inspection time. LDS can be divided into internally based LDS and externally based LDS. Internally based systems use field instrumentation (for example flow, pressure or fluid temperature sensors) to monitor internal parameters. Externally based systems use a different set of instrumentation (for example infrared radiometers or thermal cameras, vapor sensors, acoustic microphones or fiber-optic cables) to monitor external parameters.
