Managing Compressed Air Contamination Risk
Managing Compressed Air Contamination Risk

Due to the nature of compressed air applications in food and beverage production, there is a risk of incidental contact with products as well as the equipment surfaces they're prepared on. There is little room for error, and companies must be diligent about their manufacturing practices so
that contamination doesn't become an issue. Following compressed air standards is one practice that can help ensure quality and safety are not compromised.

Additionally, a manufacturer needs to decide which compressed air system works best for their particular operation: oil-injected with synthetic lubricant, oil-injected with food-grade lubricant, or an oil-free system. By following stringent manufacturing practices with respect to compressed air standards, manufacturers can confidently work toward the goal of contamination-free products.
