THE RESULTS OF CONTAMINATION, ISO 8573-1 COMPRESSED AIR
The ISO 8573 standard consists of purity classes for contaminants in compressed air: particles, water, and oil. In addition, ISO 8573-1 Compressed Air : 2010 also identifies microbiological contaminants. The ISO 8573-1 Compressed Air purity classes can be used to describe the quality of a compressed air system or to specify the required quality for a precise application. Compressed air specifications should meet product performance requirements.
With an umbrella of multiple sections and classes of requirements, the ISO standard can be used as the basis to define the appropriate and essential compressed air quality needs of manufacturing operations. Custom specifications and non-spec analytical reports rooted in ISO 8573-1 are available. These reports provide confidence, guidance, and documentation towards compliance without your facility setting an unachievable compressed air quality and usage target.
The compressed air used in the manufacturing processes should be evaluated by a competent technical individual to determine the appropriate requirements to protect the safety of the employees and the integrity of the products. We suggest a baseline test before validation. Haringa Compressor Inc. offers a team of experienced personnel along with a comprehensive validation and qualification processes.
