I couldn't find and guidance regarding sample transport losses when 
performing calculations for liquid (water) process radiation monitors.  On 
the other hand,  there's a fair amount of guidance for particulate and 
iodine transport losses where airborne process radiation monitors are 

The question is:  What is the consensus regarding extraction and transport 
losses for liquid process radiation monitors?  The reason for asking is 
that after too many years of not questioning liquid losses,  it seems like 
this should have been considered back in the '60s and '70s, but I couldn't 
find any documentation.  The usual rules for locating liquid extraction 
points are written down, but the analogs of  extraction losses, plateout, 
etc. aren't there.

Thx in advance  - -jmr,
