Standard Test Methods for Atmospheric Leaks Using a Thermal Conductivity Leak Detector
|Publication Date:||10 June 1999|
|ICS Code (Non-destructive testing):||19.100|
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for detecting the sources of gas leaking at the rate of 4.5 X 10-9 mol/s (1 X 10-4 standard cm3/s) or greater. The tests may be conducted on any object that can be pressurized with a tracer gas that is detectable by a thermal conductivity detector. The test sensitivity will vary widely depending on the tracer gas used.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
