Keep It Clean!

Standards-compliant compressed air preparation

Extremely strict requirements are stipulated for compressed air quality in the food and beverage industry. Adherence to them is important in order to ensure best possible food safety, and thus reduce consumers risks as well.
International standards are helpful in this respect. For example, 
ISO 8573-1:2010 specifies quality requirements for compressed air and stipulates maximum permissible levels of contamination and particle sizes for the respective quality classes. At the same time, standards provide us with the opportunity of penetrating global markets thanks to clear-cut, logical standardisation.
Standards-compliant, energy efficient compressed air preparation for automation solutions therefore makes it necessary to answer questions regarding various parameters such as quality classes for:
• Solid particles
• Water content
• Total oil content
A corresponding definition is included in ISO 8573-1:2010.
