Presentation slides and certificate of attendance for the session delivered at Food Safety Live 2019 by Maria Sandoval, Microbiologist, Trace Analytics LLC.
Compressed air should always be considered critical in the food manufacturing process. Ensuring safe and clean compressed air requires a thorough risk assessment, structured monitoring plans, and regular compressed air testing. Each system or facility faces unique risks from contaminants like particles, water, oil, and microorganisms. Any of the contaminants can be detrimental to the compressed air system, and the product itself. This session will focus on the use of compressed air testing to help ensure end-product safety and meeting food safety requirements and standards like ISO 8573, SQF, BRC, and Primus.
