We have few concerns as of right now. From my understanding SQF says not to have the air filters in the same room as the air compressor and the filters should be located as close to the output as long as no risk could occur.
"Wherever the compressed air comes in contact with the food, either directly or indirectly, high efficiency filters are to be in place at point-of-use where the air enters the final section of tubing (not in the compressor room)."
Currently our filters and compressor are side by side in the same room.
The production manager has the idea to add another air filter in the production area closer to the output. What are your thoughts on this, our compressor and the 3 stage air filters are located in our warehouse. It would be very difficult to relocate the filters due to how they are set up. Would what my production manager suggested work for a auditor in your opinion?
