RADIOACTIVE TRACERS AND THEIR USE IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY
A survey covers the sensitivity, ease of detection, specificity, and noncintaminating nature of radioactive tracers; the selection of the proper isotope for each application; detecting devices; safety measures; radiotracer-assisted studies of ideal and nonideal mixing; residence-time measurements with the aid of isotopes by the method of sampling and by the continuous integrated method; flow rate measurements by the continuous-dilution, integration, and "two-peaks" method; the detection of leaks; the detection of interfaces between two liquids; and the location of blockages in pipelines.
