Abstract:

A theoretical method was developed for predicting the rate of gas leakage into, or out of, standard propelling charge shipping containers as a function of the experienced pressure differential as a means to establish reasonable quality assurance acceptance criteria for the shipping containers. Theoretical results were verified by laboratory testing, and curves relating leak rate to effective hole diameter were constructed. A series of tests were performed on loaded containers to establish acceptable leakage rateshole sizes and to determine the minimum transducer sensitivity needed for implementation on automated load and pack LAP lines.
