Answer either “yes” or “no” for each fault mentioned below:

  • Receiver vessel drain valve left open
  • Transmitter block valve shut and bleed valve open
  • Transmitter block valve open and bleed valve shut
  • PIC left in manual mode, 100% output (20 mA to I/P)
  • Cable PV-6 severed (failed open) •
  • I/P air supply shut off
  • Short between TB-52, terminals 1 and 2
  • Short between TB-52, terminals 15 and 16
  • PT-6 miscalibrated, registering 5 PSI too high
  • PY-6 output failed high (15 PSI)
