When compressed air is used in the production of pharmaceuticals, food, beverages, medical devices, and other products, there seems to be confusion on what testing needs to be performed. By defining compressed air contaminants, reviewing ISO , and discussing how to designate a quality class per ISO , this article will help clear up some of that confusion. It will also provide best practices for setting up a compressed air monitoring program. What are the Contaminants in Compressed Air? It does not include classes for gases or microorganisms. Jar washers using contaminated compressed air may adulterate the final product.

ISO 8573-1:2010 Compressed Air Specifications
Compressed Air Contamination Contaminants originate from three general sources. Contaminants in the surrounding ambient are drawn into the air system through the intake of the air compressor. Ingested contaminants appear in the form of water vapor, hydrocarbon vapors, natural particles and airborne particulates. As result of the mechanical compression process, additional impurities may be introduced into the air system.
