Using this, the end-user can make educated decisions as 125001- the filtration performance required to generate a certain quality level. It provides power for pneumatically operated tools and equipment that renders meat products, aerates liquids and mixes granular ingredients. Jul 14, Original Stories 0 Comments.

Compressed air is a vital energy source and is utilized in multiple operations in a food processing facility.

The playing field is not level and consumers have become very confused. Since compressed air used in food processing operations may come in direct contact with the food, a compressed air dryer producing a sub-zero pressure dew point is required.

Solid particulates, water and oil in both aerosol and vapor form are recognized. ISO provides guidance for the testing and methods for determining particulate filter removal efficiency, by particle size.

The ISO air quality standards and ISO compressed air filter standards make the basis for air treatment product selection much easier. ISO does not however address how manufacturers are to test and rate the filters they produce.

Air treatment manufacturers present technical data in reference to ISO The particulate filter will 125001 enhance the service life of high performance coalescing filters by minimizing solid loading.


ISO Standards – Air Quality

The adsorption process will continue until the activated carbon media is fully consumed. The standard defines critical performance parameters 12500- inlet oil challenge, inlet compressed air temperature and pressure 1500-1 techniques that will deliver certifiable filter performance information suitable for comparative purposes. The most scrutinized and often discussed contaminant classified by ISO The purpose of this discussion is not to tip the scale toward either technology, but to address air treatment requirements in food processing applications.

Ingested contamination in the form of water vapor, solid particulate and hydrocarbon vapor must be addressed regardless if the compressor is lubricated or free from lubricant.

High quality compressed air is critical for providing food products that are not only cost effective to process but also safe to eat. An easy to understand ISO The ISO filter standard addresses this issue and establishes how manufacturers test and rate compressed air filters.

ISO Standards – 12500 Air Quality

This means the end-user directly influences the quality of this energy source. Depending on the location of the compressor intake, oil vapor levels in industrial areas may contain ppm of airborne hydrocarbon aerosols. The vital piece of information which is missing when testing products is a challenge concentration.

The older ISO Air Quality standard is serving the industry well by raising end user awareness of how to measure and define the quality of compressed air used.

The challenge concentration selected shall appear in published technical data. To achieve the recommended ISO Each is categorized and assigned a quality class ranging from class 0, the most stringent, to Class 9, the most relaxed.


A high efficiency coalescing filter capable of removing solids and liquids is recommended.

Of the primary utilities employed in the food-manufacturing environment, compressed air is the only utility generated by the end-user. Presenting product data in this way should allow users to easily compare the performance of purification products from different manufacturers and cost effectively meets the air quality requirements of their application.

The adsorption filter will remove trace odors and oil vapor to 0. Water vapor enters the system through the intake of 125000-1 air compressor.

Air Quality Standards ISO & ISO | Compressed Air Best Practices

It should be capable of removing solid and liquid aerosols 0. When this ambient air is compressed to psig, the concentration of solid contamination will reach significant proportions. We all benefit, appreciating that ISO, a global international standards organization, continues to refine its standards for the betterment of the compressed air industry and private sector.

The next time you sit down for dinner, take a good look at your food. The new ISO filter standard addresses this issue and establishes how 122500-1 test and rate compressed air filters.

ISO is a multi-part standard. ISO determines the adsorption capacity and pressure drop of hydrocarbon vapor removal filters.
