Added by Simon, 22 Nov 2014

Taking place 01 Apr 2015 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (Single Day Event)


Webinar Description

Navigating food grade compressed air quality for SQF, BRC, or your custom specification can be difficult. In this webinar we will discuss the various contaminants that can create a problem for your final product. We will explain ISO 8573-1 compressed air testing and why other specifications are not adequate for food and beverage manufacturers. We will also discuss ISO 8573-7 microbiological compressed air testing. Then we will dig deeper into a few ways these contaminants can occur and why they may exist in one line of piping and not another. We will close with tips on creating a monitoring program.

Cost of Attendance: Free
