The test specimen is mounted in the diffusion cell, which is subsequently divided into a dry chamber and a controlled-humidity chamber. The dry side of the specimen is swept by a flow of dry nitrogen, and the water vapor permeating through the specimen from the controlled-humidity chamber is carried by dry nitrogen to the electrolytic sensor where proportion electrical signals will be generated. The water vapor permeability is obtained by analyzing and calculating the electrical signals. For package samples, dry nitrogen flows inside the package, where moisturized nitrogen flows outside.
