Compressed Air System Risk Assessment: Do I need to Test?

in Food Safety Fridays Webinars
Added by Simon, 21 Jan 2017

Taking place 14 Jul 2017 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (Single Day Event)


Webinar Description

More than 70% of production facilities use compressed air in the manufacturing process. Experts like the Compressed Air & Gas Institute (CAGI) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) agree that the primary contaminants to monitor are particles, water, and oil (PWO). The primary sources of contamination in a compressed air supply include the intake air quality and the compressor itself. Other significant sources include distribution piping, storage receivers, and point-of-use items such as valves, gauges, flexible tubing, and fittings. Does your system filter these contaminants out? Where does your compressed air system add additional contaminants that need to be monitored or filtered? Are these contaminants detrimental to your product? Where are your HACCP critical control points, and are you monitoring them?
