    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1746 / C1746M - 19

    Rationale

    In section 6.7, the proposed 0.1% leakage limit can be unrealistic under low flow rate conditions (such as 25% of MTFR). A proposed alternate rate is 0.2% (110 gpm or higher) , or, to allow for even lower-flow-rates, 0.5%. Alternatively, an absolute leakage rate limit could be set as 0.25 gpm.
