We guarantee clean compressed air.
Cleanliness and hygiene play an important role in the food industry. An important basis for this is the generation or treatment of compressed air. Our air is made up of a wide variety of substances and contains not only gases but also dirt particles, microorganisms, water and oils. If compressed air is generated, the concentration as well as the composition of the air is changed and can have a corresponding negative effect. Machines and equipment can wear out prematurely due to the resulting corrosion. However, the focus in the food industry is on clean and hygienic food. Compressed air is used in a wide variety of applications in the production of food and beverages. This can involve direct contact with products, which can also become contaminated.
Compressed air quality plays a particularly important role in the food and beverage industry. All the requirements and regulations of the HACCP hygiene management concept must be taken into account down to the last detail when planning a compressed air station, as even the smallest particles of dirt can contaminate foodstuffs during the manufacturing process. This therefore requires safe and careful compressed air preparation.
PREPARATION OF THE COMPRESSED AIR
THE THREE STAGES OF FILTRATION
A wide variety of gases, microorganisms, water, oil, viruses, bacteria and dusts are contained in air. By compressing the air during compressed air production, the composition as well as the concentration of the individual substances is significantly increased. However, in the production of food and beverages, these can affect the quality of the products, putting consumers and consumers at risk. Therefore, the absolute purity of the air is the focus of production in the food industry. Compressed air quality is defined by three key points:
Measuring compressed air quality can ensure the high requirements in this industry.
Compliance with legal requirements and hygiene regulations form the basis for the purity of foodstuffs. To ensure the required compressed air quality, the basic principles of the ISO 8573-1 standard must be observed and complied with. This standard defines compressed air quality. The content of water and oil as well as the number of dirt particles are evaluated as important factors for the quality of compressed air. In the food industry, the purity classes 1:2:1 apply.
