Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 July 2011
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Non-destructive testing): 19.100
significance And Use:

These test methods are useful for locating and estimating the size of pressurized gas leaks, either as quality control tests or as field inspection procedures. Also, they are valuable as pretests... View More

scope:

1.1 This practice covers procedures for detecting the sources of gas leaking at the rate of 1 × 10-5 Pa m3/s (1 × 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 Units-The values stated in either SI or std-cc/sec units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents: therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.3 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.
