    Abstract: A method and apparatus of determining gas transport time from an input port to first and second ultrasonic detectors in a flow conduit for an aspirated smoke detector includes first measuring transit time of ambient air between the detectors. Then a different gas is injected into the conduit and the time of injection is stored.
