Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This practice describes the apparatus needed, and the procedures for connecting, preparing, and sampling pressurized gas blow down systems and components for particulate contamination by the use an automatic particle monitor. The sensing unit of the automatic particle monitor is connected to the designated sample port which is under purge condition. The system flow rate is then adjusted to the sample flow rate requirement. Finally, all the gas passing through the sensing unit is monitored for particulate contamination until the required sample volume has been analyzed.
