What is GFSI and How Does It Apply to Compressed Air?
 
Took Place:
Friday, October 20, 2023
 
Presenter:
Erin Zimmerman, Customer Service and Sales Manager, Trace Analytics LLC
 
Webinar Overview:
Learn more about what The Global Food Safety Initiative certification schemes say about compressed air in food and beverage manufacturing processes. Because these schemes are often vague, it can be helpful to reference common languages like ISO 8573 and employ individualized risk assessments for determining limits. Erin Zimmerman, the Trace Analytics’ customer service manager, will lead a discussion on food safety and quality certification bodies, how to determine purity requirements, and explain how to test your compressed air or gas.
