  • Publication number: 20200018736
    Abstract: A method for detecting the concentration of a specified gas contained in a mixed gas includes, in a pressure-type flow rate control device including a restriction portion, an upstream valve provided upstream of the restriction portion, and a pressure sensor for measuring the pressure between the restriction portion and the upstream valve, a step of flowing the mixed gas from the upstream side of the upstream valve in a state in which the pressure on the downstream side of the restriction portion is lower than the pressure on the upstream side of the restriction portion, a step of determining with a pressure sensor pressure drop characteristics occurring after the upstream valve is changed from an open to a closed state, and a step of determining the concentration of the specified gas in the mixed gas based on the pressure drop characteristics.
