Compressed Air Quality Testing
Compressed Air Quality Testing Services
Why is it Important?
Compressed air use in your manufacturing process must be controlled and monitored to provide a level of quality that meets your requirements. If compressed air comes into contact either directly or indirectly with your product, it must be considered as a potential hazard.
What do we test?
Particles- Rust, dirt, and metal shavings are just a few examples of possible particle contamination.
Water- Length and condition of distribution piping, drops, dead-ends, condensate drain traps, and the use of polymer tubing can contribute to excess moisture.
Oil- Even oil-free compressors can be contaminated with oil vapor (gaseous hydrocarbons) from intake air.
Microorganisms- An improperly maintained compressor may provide the conditions (water + oil + warm temperature) needed for microbial growth carbons) from intake air.
