Compressed air is used widely in the food industry with both direct and indirect contact to ingredients, final products, and packaging. We’ll field your questions about potential contaminants, monitoring plans, limits, risk assessments, HACCP principles, sampling, troubleshooting, and more. We’ll also discuss new pure gas monitoring requirements from SQF in 2018. Join our discussion!

The ISO standards referenced by Trace Analytics are stricter than expected. It is hard to believe that most of the food/pharm industries are using a descant dryer for compressed air systems, which would be required to meet the dew point standard for product contact compressed air use. 


Any suggestions to control the setup to prevent non-viable particle counts from the setup and not the actual compressed air line? We have added new 5um filters and are still getting some particles as large as 40um on the filters.
