    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This standard is intended as a guide. It enumerates factors to be considered in preparing a definitive specification for maximum permissible gas leakage of a component, device, or system. The guide relates and provides examples of data for the preparation of leak testing specifications. It is primarily applicable for use in specifying halogen leak testing methods. Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E07 on Nondestructive Testing, this test method was withdrawn in July 2014. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it is too halogen-specific or refrigerant-oriented.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard is intended as a guide. It enumerates factors to be considered in preparing a definitive specification for maximum permissible gas leakage of a component, device, or system. The guide relates and provides examples of data for the preparation of leak testing specifications. It is primarily applicable for use in specifying halogen leak testing methods.

    1.2 Two types of specifications are described:

    1.2.1 Operational specifications (OS), and

    1.2.2 Testing specifications (TS):

    Total, and

    Each leak.

    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.
