The Effect of the Operational Conditions on the Quantitative Leak Rate of Leak Detectors
The Korea Research Institute of Standards and Sciences has developed and maintained leak standards systems, and has accumulated much data on leak standards that have been disseminated during calibration and testing services. We have found that the indicative value of a leak detector and a halogen leak detector varies a lot, depending on the conditions encountered during sniffer mode operation. Therefore, to measure the reliability of the leak rate or when performing a leak test, proper test conditions are necessary. In addition, we found that the reliability increased when we used a guide tube that could influence the flow of air.
