Formulas for above calculations are adapted from the September 1993 second edition of the Chemical Exposure Index Guide published by the Dow Chemical Company. Formula for Liquid Release, Round Opening: Formula for Liquid Release, Irregular Opening: Where: L=26.81(D squared) * Square Root of Pg*Pl L=34.133A * Square Root of Pg*Pl

L=Liquid Flow Rate Lb./min. D=Diameter round hole, inches Pg=Gauge pressure, psig Pl= Density of liquid at operating temperature, Lb./cu. Ft.

A=Area of leak, square inches

Formula for Gas Release, Round Opening: Formula for Gas Release, Irregular Opening: Where:

AQ=(15.48*(D Squared)*Pa)/Square Root (Tr+459) AQ=(19.71*A*Pa)/Square Root (Tr+459)

AQ=Gas Flow Rate, Lb./min. D=Diameter of round hole, inches Pa=Gauge pressure plus 14.7, psi Tr=Refrigerant gas temperature, F A=Area of leak, square inches
