This test method involves measuring the change in pressure inside the tubing over time. There are three procedures that may be used, all of which are intended to be equivalent. It is a qualitative not a quantitative test method. Any of the three procedures are intended to be capable of leak detection and, as such, are intended to be equivalent for that purpose. 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.

This Standard covers the testing of components for leaks by pressurizing them inside with a liquid. The Practice is intended for use on piping, valves, and containers with welded or fitted sections which can be sealed at their ends and are designed for internal pressure.
Often, contracts calling out this document require the personnel performing the tests are required to be certified for NDT non-destructive testing. It is not sensitive enough for leak testing when toxic or explosive gas is expected to be retained under pressure. Copies of this and other obsolete ASTM standards are part of our collection.
