The amount of airflow cfm required to maintain the pressure differential is recorded extraneous air leakage. The extraneous air leakage is subtracted from the total airflow resulting in a net airflow amount entering through the specimen. The air pressure differences acting across a building envelope vary greatly.

Assurance Enabling you to identify and astm e the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. A ashm sheet is sealed over the exterior surface of the test specimen. There are various ways of measurement asstm determine the air leakage rate. ASTM E is one of the most misunderstood test method conducted in the field for multiple reasons: The testing is performed by sealing a chamber astm e the interior or exterior face of e738 test specimen, supplying or exhausting air from the chamber at a rate required to maintain the specified test pressure, and measuring the air flow lost or gained across astm e testing chamber.
Far too often, we hear of incompetent testing companies trying to perform these precise tests with homemade equipment that does not meet calibration requirements. As a result, air infiltrating through the specimen changes the pressure inside the chamber. Note 1—The air pressure differences astm e across a building envelope vary greatly.
Our field consultants are properly trained and knowledgeable of all testing standards.
Air leakage from the adjacent wall cavity through sill, head, and jambs of the window frame is considered extraneous air leakage and, therefore, not a component of the measured specimen air leakage. This is zstm to identify air infiltrations so they can be controlled or eliminated. Applicable to exterior windows and e7833. Historical Version s — view previous versions of standard.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate astm e and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
